it was amazing

This is a great book for readers and writers alike, discussing uncanny and strange fiction - what it is, why it works, and how it’s written. Each chapter is approached by a different author in their own style - some taking an academic approach to close reading, others discussing the uncanny across cultures, some sharing personal highlights of the genre, some occasionally highlighting bits they’d have done differently.

Also comes with a good long list of recommended long and short uncanny fiction, which gives plenty of inspiration for the long winter nights.
