I just checked out the Tartarus Press website and noticed that The Collected Strange Stories of Robert Aickman is now back in print. Very pricy, and the print is too small, but several thousand dollars less than it would cost you to buy all the books the stories are taken from.

If you like strange stories that elude easy explanations, but stil, somehow, satisfy, Aickman was the best there ever was.

Go and browse the Tartarus site -- they have some wonderful stuff for bibliophiles and a terrific backlist, and ponder at the peculiar attempt to sell The Attempted Rescue as a lost episode of The League of Gentlemen.
