Hmm, Compulsory Games seems like a very nice volume, ... and I don't want to sound negative, but ... I don't think I will buy it. Because I will not realistically find time to read, and re-read, these stories. I am a slow reader, and already have too many unread volumes in my library. This one would likely remain standing on the shelf. I try hard to avoid the habit of buying more books than I can actually read, to keep things sensible. And several other favorite authors await my attention.

The only stories I urgently would like to add to my three (rather well-rounded) Aickman collections, are "Wood" and "The Unsettled Dust". Preferably not in books full of other stories. Perhaps they eventually become available as ebook files. But until then their possible literary events tease and stir my imagination and curiousity, ... which is not a bad thing.

Re: Robert Aickman

Adam Scovell is a writer and filmmaker with a particular focus on landscape, psychogeography (I really dislike that word, now), and folk horror in the arts, and has made many short eerie films exploring uncanny, haunted, Ballardian landscapes. In this post on his excellent blog, Celluloid Wicker Man, he writes about Aickman's mysterious holiday photographs.

The photographs are really only mysterious when the author forgets that he ripped them from the Tartarus Press Aickman documentary. I quite enjoyed the blog post, but the knowledge of who took the photos, where they were taken, and the dates, does make some of his speculations rather redundant.
