Praise for this book

"The Model is an apt title for a work that is just that - a model of eloquent elegant enchantment. It's a must for Aickman fans, and for everyone who enjoys fantasy at its highest and most literate level." - Robert Bloch

"Robert Aickman is incomparable - a genuinely authentic original and an absolute master of psychological fiction." - Dennis Etchison

"He is a weatherman of the subconscious." - Fritz Leiber

"A Strange and delicate winter fable, chilling and dreamlike." - Michael Swanwick

"The late Robert Aickman was up to something. and quite consciously. He did not title his little book The Model for nothing. What he has done (and knew he had done) is discover a new wonderland." - Gene Wolfe
