Hardcover – Centipede Press – Aug 2018 – over 1300 pages
Robert Aickman (1914-1981) has come to be recognized as among the leading writers of weird fiction in the second half of the twentieth century. His subtle, allusive tales, written in prose of impeccable precision and mellifluousness, have influenced an array of writers who followed in his wake, notably Ramsey Campbell, T. E. D. Klein, and Peter Straub.
The two volume collection of Aickman’s 48 stories is enclosed in a slipcase with ribbon marker and a dozen full page illustrations by John Kenn Mortensen, an introduction by S. T. Joshi, and an essay on Aickman by T.E.D. Klein. The edition is limited to 300 signed and numbered copies, and the book is signed by Joshi and Mortensen, with a special facsimile signature by Robert Aickman
