H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Aickman, Algernon Blackwood, Robert W. Chambers, Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, Clark Ashton Smith.
Stephen Poliakoff. BBC.
The greatest TV drama series for yonks, possibly the greatest ever.
Crystallised post-Nazi 1946 tensions and half-ruined aftermath in Britain, including off-kilter Aickmanisms and toffee apples.
The Hotel was a wonderful character in itself.
Retrocausal echoes from Brexit and Trump. Potter’s Eton’s playing fields. And now today’s nuke macho to follow jet engines.
Did anyone notice Visconti ‘Death in Venice’ moments…?
