Dickson’s work deals primarily with haunting — not horror, mind you, and not ghosts exactly (though his book Clearance does deal with ghosts more directly), but the feeling of being haunted, the strange ache and longing for something that never quite fully appears and yet somehow remains.

I was a bit hesitant to pick it up when it was described to me as a novella, but I'm glad I did as I don't think that description does the book justice.
