Robert Aickman

(Robert Fordyce Aickman)
UK (1914 - 1981)
Grandson of Richard Marsh

Robert Aickman is considered by many to be one of the finest modern writers of ghost stories. But Aickman himself refered 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.
