epub Tales Of Love And Death epub

by Robert Aickman

Another top notch edition from Tartarus reproducing one of the authors many out of print collections with an introduction by Michael Dirda.

As for the stories themselves, not among my favourite of his collections I have to say. This was my second reading of everyone's worst Aickman story; "Growing Boys" and I must admit that it did improve somewhat upon my second read. This time I noticed some of the subtler points of interest that I missed first time. No doubt that is true of most if not all of his stories and might well be the case for "Residents Only" and "Wood" that shared a sense of black humour yet I didn't quite see what the author was trying to achieve with either.

The stand out stories for me were "Marriage" and "Compulsory Games". Both deeply effective and moving; simply Aickman at his best. There were also two shorter, minor pieces: "Raising the Wind" and "Le Miroir".

All in all, a must for Aickman completest but not somewhere to start if you are new to the author.
