REVIEWS: ‘Tartarus have done a superb job of making these books available to the reader at a price which demands commitment, but represents value.’ - Phil Baker, Times Literary Supplement. ‘Straightforward genre horror, you would think, but it’s all crossed with acute social observation and the kind of resistance to closure associated with more literary work. Pricey, but well worth it.’ - The Guardian “I recommend buying The Collected Strange Stories by Robert Aickman; he is not simply a writer of ghost stories, but a master of the macabre whose ‘strange stories’ will haunt you forever.” - Matt Leyshon, Enigma (Waterstones Magazine) ‘There has long been a need for an omnibus edition of Aickman’s ‘Collected Stories’—no easy task in view of the fact that he wrote 48 in all. Fortunately, this project has now been realized with the publication by the Tartarus Press and the Durtro Press of The Collected Strange Stories, a handsome two-volume edition.” - Richard Dalby, Book and Magazine Collector. ‘Surely the supernatural publishing event of the year.’ - Jo Hird, Antiquarian Book Monthly.
