I picked this up because I had seen so many plaudits for Aickman for being a "magician" with horror and thriller storytelling. Kim Newman on the back of my copy notes "...the best, the subtlest and creepiest author of ghost stories". I didn't finish it - not because it was too scary or creepy but because Aickman's writing is clearly of its time and I suspect he was a very...old-fashioned...gent. I think that's a polite way of saying misogynist.
