Robert Aickman (1914-1981) was the grandson of Richard Marsh, a leading Victorian novelist of the occult. Though his chief occupation in life was first as a conservationist of England's canals he eventually turned his talents to writing what he called 'strange stories.' Dark Entries (1964) was his first full collection, the debut in a body of work that would inspire Peter Straub to hail Aickman as 'this century's most profound writer of what we call horror stories.'

Aickman's 'strange stories' (his preferred term) are constructed immaculately, the neuroses of his characters painted in subtle shades. He builds dread by the steady accrual of realistic detail, until the reader realises that the protagonist is heading towards their doom as if in a dream. First published in 1988, The Wine-Dark Sea contains eight stories that build towards disturbing yet enigmatic endings, including the classic story 'Your Tiny Hand is Frozen.' 'Of all the authors of uncanny tales, Aickman is the best ever . . . His tales literally haunt me; his plots and his turns of phrase run through my head at the most unlikely moments.' Russell Kirk

In an upscale high school classroom, somewhere in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Corpusel is teaching math to his gifted students. Dr. Corpusel grabs the nearest student, drags her from her seat and asks her a story problem. She answers the question quickly and correctly, which is not what Dr. Corpusel wants her to do. He pulls a handgun from his jacket and blows her head off. During Dr. Corpusels incarceration, he writes the following to his wife, Bridget Corpusel: I have come to the realization that I alone am the founder of conversational reality. A term with no boundaries. A bicycle with four pedals. A salt shaker with no holes. Yellow paper with, HELP written in yellow ink. I have discovered the link to the past by thought and contemplation. No student of math with ever be competent enough to make reference, or judge a conclusion by scientific theory or fact. I alone have endured the pain that much be acknowledged before the truth is discovered. The wasted years of lying to students about their talent is over. The Nobel Peace Prize is all about mine. Countries will bow to my immediate presence. The main character is Dr. Corpusels son, Nicholas Corpusel. Nicholas is a well-established writer in his late 30s, who wants to give up his writing career to become an actor. To achieve this transaction Nicholas has to (1) get rid of his quirky girlfriend, Leeza; (2) deal with his neurotic cat (named Dr. Travesty); (3) sell his latest and last novel entitled, The Brown Bag Stereo; and (4) keep from losing his mind. Throughout the novel, Nicholas finds himself in various predicaments which usually requires the assistance of others. The following occurs when Nicholas innocently tries to visit his father at Shady Lanes, a mental therapy house: The guards left him alone to wander down through the maze of hallways. Nicholas assured them that he knew where he was going, even though he had no idea. He found himself in the middle of the women's isolation ward. He was a bit nervous being around hundreds of extremely mean, horny women. He had read about women in prisons before and had pictured the carnage in which could have erupted at any moment, but he wasnt exactly sure how it would or could take place. Just as the thought faded, the door locked behind him and Nicholas realized he was trapped. Trapped in a room with at least twelve women. Then, the thing that Nicholas had feared most happened. "You hold him down and I'll fuck the living shit out of him!" Nicholas freaked at the way that the women were looking at him. "HELP!" screamed Nicholas as he pounded on the door. The women kept circling him like terriers circling a baby lamb before the slaughter. The smell of blood was in the air. "Help, you fucking morons!" The Leader of the pack lunged at Nicholas as the door flew open. The guard on duty in that sector had saved Nicholas. The guard just happened to be making his Prozac rounds. "What the hell were you doing over here?" "Lost," replied Nicholas in an extremely relieved voice. Nicholas had fantasized about having multiple women at one time, but this was entirely different. These women were mean and reminded him of the clientele of a northern Michigan Wal Mart store on a twenty percent off Sunday. Nicholas loved women so much that he even considered himself a lesbian trapped in a man's body. He was not into forced sex by any means. All fantasies aside. Despite numerous times where Nicholas slips into incoherent babbling, reminiscent of his father, Nicholas lands his first role

Avec leur premier single, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”, Bauhaus a fait une entrée fracassante dans le monde de la musique post-punk, générant en une seule chanson devenue mythique un mouvement passionné, hanté et inédit. Expérience musicale et esthétique irréductible, Bauhaus devait vivre quatre ans et donner quatre albums : In The Flat Field (1980), Mask (1981), The Sky’s Gone Out (1982), Burning From The Inside (1983), avant de se séparer une première fois. Vingt-cinq ans plus tard, le groupe publie Go Away White, cinquième album annoncé comme leur dernier.Toute l’histoire singulière de ce groupe hors normes, qui a inventé ses propres règles esthétiques et artistiques, est rassemblée avec moults détails dans les pages de Dark Entries, fruit d’une longue collaboration entre l’auteur et les musiciens.

Example in this ebook PART I THE OLD TOWN CHAPTER I EDINBURGH CASTLE: ITS LEGENDS AND ROMANCES There, watching high the least alarms, Thy rough, rude fortress gleams afar; Like some bold veteran, gray in arms, And marked with many a scamy scar; The ponderous wall and massy bar, Grim rising o’er the rugged rock, Have oft withstood assailing war, And oft repelled the invader’s shock. Burns. THE great line of east coast lying between the two headlands of Norfolk and Aberdeenshire is nowhere broken by another so bold and graceful indentation as that of the Firth of Forth. The Forth has its birth among hills that look down on Loch Katrine and Loch Lomond; flows thence in a pretty tortuous course towards the east, forming a boundary-line between the countries of the Gael and the Sassenach; is replenished by the Teith from the Trossachs and by the Allan from Strathmore; meanders at the foot of Stirling Castle, and seems never to weary of weaving its silver windings into that green expanse of country where most the Scottish imagination loves to linger; until at last, when there is poured into it the Devon from the Ochils, its channel widens to the sea somewhat suddenly. But even here the diverging banks, once so near, show an occasional friendly inclination to meet; and at one point there is only a mile of blue water and white waves between them, and then the view widens and the shores part irrevocably, the one stretching away to the extreme “east neuk” of Fife, and looking To Norroway, to Norroway, To Norroway ower the faem! and the other rolling with softer curves to the South and England, while the great German Ocean ebbs and flows between. The point where the banks of the Forth are but a mile apart is now spanned by that triumph of engineering, the Forth Bridge,—the largest bridge in the world; but in olden days there was here a famous crossing, and the names of the villages on the opposite banks, North Queensferry and South Queensferry, still carry the mind back to the days when Malcolm Canmore’s stately Saxon Queen, Saint Margaret of Scotland, was ferried across here on her way between the palace of Dunfermline and the Castle of Edinburgh. Edinburgh was not then, nor for centuries after, the Capital of Scotland, but merely a useful stronghold near the Borders,—a great rock rising abruptly among woods and lochs and hills, on which, from before the earliest legends of history, a fortress had stood,—an impregnable castle, built so long ago that none knows its origin, nor even the origin of its name. Stow’s Chronicle, indeed, dates the foundation of the “Castell of Maydens” 989 B.C., which is a sensational date to mention lightly to the inquiring tourist from the newer world. It is supposed that the name “Castell of Maydens” was gained because, in legendary days, certain Pictish princesses were kept there for safety; and certainly, from those hazy times right on till the time of Mary, Queen of Scots, when she was sent to the Castle for security before the birth of King James, Edinburgh Castle has always been a useful place of safety to which to send royalties and rebels. The earliest authentic romance of Edinburgh Castle is that of Malcolm Canmore and Queen Margaret; and the oldest building extant in Edinburgh is Queen Margaret’s chapel in the Castle. The well-known story of Queen Margaret, the grand-niece of Edward the Confessor, is that she and her brother Edgar Atheling and her sister Christian all fled from England and William the Conqueror, and were wrecked in the Firth of Forth. The King of Scotland, Malcolm Canmore, was the son of that Duncan whom Macbeth put out of the way—in Scottish history as well as in Shakespeare’s play,—and he had fled from the usurper, and had spent his years of exile at the Saxon Court of Edward the Confessor.

When the body of John Harmon turns up in the Thames, an illiterate dustman named Noddy Boffins unexpectedly inherits Harmon's unclaimed fortune. Boffins's good luck seems fitting since Harmon's father--the notorious London miser Old Man Harmon--became rich through the dustman business, essentially garbage collection. The newly upwardly mobile Boffins and his wife, also a loyal servant of Harmon's miserly father, struggle to fit in with the monied class. At the same time, the couple attempts to aid those less fortunate than themselves, an effort that tests their moral compass. Soon Noddy begins to take on the penny-pinching tendencies of his benefactor. Our Mutual Friend (1865) offers satisfying twists and turns on the Victorian rags-to-riches story as it expertly weaves together one of the author's most important themes, newfound wealth and the seismic shifts of social circumstance that accompany it.

This is a critical study of many of the leading writers of horror and supernatural fiction since World War II. The primary purpose is to establish a canon of weird literature, and to distinguish the genuinely meritorious writers of the past fifty years from those who have obtained merely transient popular renown. Accordingly, the author regards the complex, subtle work of Shirley Jackson, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Aickman, T.E.D. Klein, and Thomas Ligotti as considerably superior to the best-sellers of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, and Anne Rice. Other writers such as William Peter Blatty, Thomas Tryon, Robert Bloch, and Thomas Harris are also discussed. Taken as a whole, the volume represents a pioneering attempt to chart the development of weird fiction over the past half-century.
