Book Review: Robert Aickman – WSJ

In ‘The Wine-Dark Sea,’ a short story by Robert Aickman, a traveler steals a boat to visit a mysterious Greek island, rejecting the advice of locals who warn him not to go there. As he explores a citadel that seems lost in time, he encounters three alluring women who may be sirens or witches or ghosts. The odd setting makes a deep impression: "The whole place was beautifully tended, but it was hard to see for what, at least by accepted standards."
