Description

‘…reading The Dark Domain by Stephan Grabinski is such a revelatory experience. Because here is a writer for whom supernatural horror is manifest precisely in modernity – in electricity, fire-stations, trains: the uncanny as the bad conscience of today. Sometimes Grabinski is known as the Polish Poe but this is misleading. Where Poe’s horror is agonised, a kind of extended shriek, Grabinski’s is cerebral, investigative. His protagonists are tortured and aghast, but not because they suffer at the caprice of Lovecraftian blind idiot gods: Grabinski’s universe is strange and its principles are perhaps not what we expect, but they are principles – rules- and it is in their exploration that the mystery lies. This is horror as rigour.’ China Mieville in The Guardianshow more
