Splendid in Ash

Charles Wilkinson

Charles Wilkinson has a natural talent for the weird—the uncanny, strange, horrific, macabre: call it what you will.
- John Howard

Splendid in Ash contains 17 previously uncollected stories by Charles Wilkinson, a writer whose seemingly effortless ability to turn the ordinary, the everyday, the outwardly mundane volte-face into regions of feverish weirdness is unrivalled.
