If you watched the TV show, The Crown, then you know Princess Margaret was the much more compelling one! This book really gives you 99 glimpses of Princess Margaret that makes you love and hate her at the same time. Everyone in the book has an opinion of her, but did anyone really know her???
I credit Adam at the Lake Forest Park store, for introducing me to Robert Aickman. At the time, Cold Hand in Mine was not in print, but his books of "strange stories" are now in wonderful paperback editions by Faber & Faber. The terrors within these pages are subtle and disquieting. Aickman has been compared to Algernon Blackwood and M.R. James, but he may even be better those those acknowledged masters of unsettling fiction. These timeless and creepy stories are extremely well-written and I want to do my part to ensure that Aickman finds the reading audience that he deserves.
