All books are wrapped in bubble wrap then put into a handmade cardboard box which is then wrapped in brown paper - we do not use padded envelopes.

 

 

A hardback copy of Robert Aickman's "THE ATTEMPTED RESCUE" published by Tartarus Press in 2013

 

The book is in MINT and UNREAD condition in a MINT condition dustjacket.

 

Robert Aickman has received due recognition for his hauntingly poetic and psychologically charged ‘strange’ tales, but what sort of early life fuelled their creation? The Attempted Rescue chronicles Aickman’s childhood and youth, over which looms the figure of his eccentric father, a man almost entirely resistant to ‘normal’ family life, and a man who Aickman describes as dying ‘from loss of luxuries’. So much of Aickman’s childhood appears bizarre and unyielding of explanation that it is little wonder that his short stories are so odd.

Aickman invests the book with his startling, often politically incorrect opinions on politics, the modern industrial world and his rather bleak view of sexual relationships. But there is also much achingly heart-felt nostalgia in the atmospheric descriptions of pre-World War Two London, the theatre and the large country house of his singular Great Uncle and Aunt.

Aickman displays more than a passing acquaintance with psycho-analysis in this fascinating autobiography, and we can infer that the disturbing images with which he invests his fiction are there by design. Then again, when such a master of the weird tale tells the story of his own life, how far can we be sure that he is not manipulating our expectations as subtly as he does in his fiction?
This edition contains a foreword by Jeremy Dyson, a member of the award-winning comedy team The League of Gentlemen. He  presented ‘The Unsettled Dust’, a BBC Radio Four documentary on Robert Aickman.
 
The Attempted Rescue is a sewn hardback of 245 + viii pages, printed lithographically, with silk ribbon marker, head and tailbands, and dustjacket

 

I concentrate on the Horror, Fantasy, Science Fiction and Crime fiction genres but not exclusively. I have an excellent selection of books listed in my eBay Shop at any one time ranging from inexpensive paperbacks to collectable, hardback First Editions. Please feel free to browse.

 

I accept payment by cheque, postal order or PAYPAL from UK buyers. Buyers from outside the UK must be able to pay via PAYPAL as the cost of conversion on foreign currency cheques/orders is prohibitive for relatively inexpensive items.
