4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated author of spooky brilliance, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Matrix (Paperback)
Aycliffe is one of my favorite authors and I have missed him. He's been out of print for so long, and I am glad a publisher has decided to bring his work out of limbo. I would say this book is not quite as chilling as Naomi's Room or The Lost, and I find it to be not quite as memorable, but there is a powerful understatement to his work that makes the supernatural events more believable. Writing this review, I can't really remember the plot, which you would think would be a bad sign, but in fact what I enjoy about his work is that it gives me goosebumps and actual chills whilst reading, being a more sensual and emotional experience than an intellectual one, and this makes it possible to reread Aycliffe periodically with no loss of enjoyment. I would prefer it if the publishers were bringing out his back-catalogue more quickly than two or three a year, and I hope they republish all his horror stories.
