A very good first edition of this collection of weird & supernatural tales by British writer Robert Aickman, grandson of Richard Marsh (of The Beetle fame) no less. This is the first time these stories were collected, with no equivalent UK edition. The collection includes 'The Waiting Room', one of his most well-known spooky tales. The jacket artwork by one of the best illustrators of all things weird sets the mood perfectly.
