As Phil Baker writes in his Introduction to this new edition of Cold Hand in Mine: ‘Robert Aickman (1914-1981) is increasingly esteemed as the most subtle and distinctive practitioner of the modern ghost story, or what he preferred to call the “strange story”: he edited eight collections of ghost stories for the publisher Fontana, but most of his own stories have no obvious ghost. Instead the “ghost story”—or strange story, or uncanny story—was for Aickman essentially “the story of rare sensations”: a genre “allied to poetry”.'
