His characters are often lonely and middle-aged but all have the same thing in common - they are all brought to the brink of an abyss that shows how terrifyingly fragile our peace of mind actually is.The Next Glade, Bind Your Hair and The Stains appeared together in The Wine-Dark Sea in 1988 while The Unsettled Dust, The House of the Russians, No Stronger Than a Flower, The Cicerones and Ravissante first appeared in Sub Rosa in 1968. The stories were published together as The Unsettled Dust in 1990. Aickman received the British Fantasy Award in 1981 for The Stains, which had first appeared in the anthology New Terrors (1980), before appearing in the last original posthumous collection of Aickmans short stories, Night Voices (1985).We are all potential victims of the powers Aickman so skilfully conjures and commands.
