Cold Hand In Mine: Strange Stories., Aickman,  Robert
7 Aickman, RobertCold Hand In Mine: Strange Stories. 30089
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2011.
Second printing.
Hardcover.
Collection of supernatural stories. First published in 1975, this Tartarus reprint contains a new introduction by Phil Baker.

''Robert Aickman was perhaps the finest writer of the ghost story in the second half of the 20th century, and although little of his work is pure fantasy - only a few of his 45 or so stories, and neither of his novels, actually take leave of the mundane world in any sense, except as a prelude to death - he is of absorbing interest in our context because he demonstrates the range of meaning that may be extracted from the devices of any form of fantastic literature, when those devices are treated gravely by a writer of high quality. Most of his work is technically supernatural fiction, about which he comments interestingly in his introductions to his Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories series of anthologies. He commonly focuses not upon the entity (usually a ghost) which violates the fabric of reality but upon his richly conceived protagonists as they thrust towards, and sometimes across, thresholds they do not know how to ''read''. They cannot understand the ghost that faces them because that ghost, in the author's most typical stories - like ''Compulsory Games'' (1976 in Frights ed Kirby McCauley) - is a manifestation, a psychic portrait, of their failure to understand their own lives. Having failed to know themselves, his protagonists become frightened unto death by the fragmented images they glimpse across the uncanny threshold'' (John Clute/Encylopedia of Fantasy).

The last, posthumously published collection of stories by Aickman, first published by Victor Gollancz in 1985.

An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge And Other Stories., Bierce,  Ambrose
40 Bierce, AmbroseAn Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge And Other Stories. 24216
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2008.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The complete supernatural stories, with an introduction by S.T. Joshi: 256 pages. Perhaps best known as a journalist and the author of the sardonic The Devil's Dictionary, Bierce ranks alongside Poe as one of the fathers of American supernatural fiction. As a young man he served in the Federal army during the American Civil war, participating in some of the most horrific battles, and this closeness to the horrors and excitement of war informed both his famed cynicism and his fiction. And Bierce's precise, pared down writing style provides a perfect foil to the Gothic content of his tales. His own death remains an enduring mystery: the septuagenarian Bierce went missing during a trip to Revolutionary Mexico late in 1913, and no trace of him has ever been found. 300 copies printed.

''the element that fuses Bierce's tales . . . is the focus on what might be called the psychology and physiology of fear. . . . Bierce is relentless in dissecting the precise succession of emotions that transforms a sane, normal man . . . into a gibbering lunatic'' (S. T. Joshi, from the introduction).

A Haunting Beauty: Stories Of The Macabre., Birkin,  Charles
41 Birkin, CharlesA Haunting Beauty: Stories Of The Macabre. 04073
Midnight House: Seattle, CA. 2000.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Collects 13 weird/supernatural stories, with a five page preface by Mike Ashley, and four page introduction from the author. 450 numbered hardcover copies printed.

''In the 1960's one author was almost solely responsible for keeping the horror genre alive in Britain, Sir Charles Birkin. In the years from 1964 to 1971 the author produced a string of powerful collections including The Kiss of Death, Spawn of Satan, and The Smell of Evil. In the early 1980's the author and editor Mike Ashley undertook the preparation of a retrospective showcase of the author's work. Efforts to market the volume were curtailed by Birkin's death in 1986 and the collection, A Haunting Beauty has remained lost -- until now. With a special introduction by Sir Charles Birkin nearly two decades after the author and editor began work on it. In this volume the full range and diversity of the author's work is demonstrated by tales that run the gamut from the eerie supernatural thriller ''Ballet Negre'' to the poignant ghostly tale ''Little Boy Blue'' and the grotesqueries of ''Lords of the Refuge''. Also included are a pair of fine examples of stories based on the author's war-time experiences, ''The Mouse Hole'' and a story that has to rank as a masterpiece, ''Waiting for Trains''. While best-known for his disturbing tales of psychological horror, Birkin was also adept at the supernatural tale of terror as is amply demonstrated by this collection''.

''his books feature grotesques and eccentrics viewed with whimsical affection. These people often have crotchets and obsessions, and live in mutable worlds subject to curiosities and wonders whose explications -- while sometimes earnestly scientific -- are seen as hopelessly inadequate in the face of their absolute strangeness. The events of his books fall into odd patterns rather than linear plots, though the later works have a stronger narrative drive. HOMUNCULUS, a kind of prequel to The Digging Leviathan, is set in a Dickensian 19th-century London, and likewise features the spirit of scientific or alchemical inquiry, along with space vehicles, zombies and the possibility of immortality through essence of carp'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
