Robert Aickman is considered by many to be one of the finest modern writers of ghost stories. But Aickman himself referred to his tales as "strange stories", for they are often open to more complex interpretations. The writing is subtle and poetic, presenting us with both psychological and more material terrors. This second volume of the two-volume set of "The Collected Strange Stories" contains: "Cold Hand in Mine": The Swords, The Real Road to the Church, Niemandswasser, Pages from a Young Girl's Journal, The Hospice, The Same Dog, Meeting Mr Millar, The Clock Watcher. "Tales of Love and Death": Growing Boys, Marriage, Le Miroir, Compulsory Games, Raising the Wind, Residents Only, Wood. "Intrusions": Hand in Glove", No Time is Passing, The Fetch, The Breakthrough, The Next Glade, Letters to the Postman. "Night Voices": The Stains, Just a Song at Twilight, Laura, Rosamund's Bower, Mark Ingestre: The Customer's Tale.
