Product Description

Freud observed that birds 'don't seem to be submitted to the same laws of gravity as us', although without gravity they would die, as they need it to swallow. Birds are all around us; they could not be more familiar. And yet at the same time they are alien, unheimlich - uncanny. Award-winning editor Nicholas Royle brings together previously published stories by Daphne du Maurier, Anna Kavan, Russell Hoban and others with brand-new tales by contemporary writers including Bill Broady, Adam Marek, Regi Claire and many more. With a foreword by Angelica Michelis, senior lecturer in English at Manchester Metropolitan University. Contributors' royalties and editor's fee to be donated to the RSPB.

Format: Kindle Edition
An excellent collection. So many stories and all live up to the uncanny declaration in the subtitle; they are unsettling. As with any anthology, some were standouts for me, others less so. The one fault I found is that almost all the stories have one factor in common, other than birds as the topic, which became repetitive after a while. To say what that factor was might be a spoiler so I will leave it for others to see for themselves. Otherwise, for lovers of the short story and of the fascination of birds, it's a winner
