Dark Entries


Robert Aickman


Introduction by Glen Cavaliero


As Dr Glen Cavaliero states in his introduction to this new edition of Dark Entries, 'It is Robert Aickman's peculiar achievement that he should invest the daylight world with all the terrors of the night'.


Dark Entries was the first solo collection of 'strange stories''by British short story writer, critic, lecturer and novelist, Robert Aickman. First published in 1964 it contains the classic 'Ringing the Changes' and perhaps Aickman's best femme fatale in 'Choice of Weapons'. The version of 'The View' is slightly re-written from its first appearance in We Are for the Dark.


Contents: 'Introduction' by Glen Cavaliero, 'The School Friend', 'Ringing the Changes', 'Choice of Weapons', 'The Waiting Room', 'The View' and 'Bind Your Hair'.


Cover artwork by Stephen J Clark of The Singing Garden.
