Robert Aickman was one of the most important writers of ghost stories in the last century. His personal, deeply felt tales were consummately poetic. Very much feeling a sense of twentieth century Angst, Aickman wrote elegant, moving tales of subtle terror. Aickman also founded The Inland Waterways Association in Britain, which upgraded Britain's rivers and canals. He was a drama and film critic as well as on the boards of opera and ballet companies. This book is an overview of the man writer Fritz Leiber hailed as "the weatherman of the unconscious."
