I was recently introduced to Stefan Grabinski and have just read his collection of dark stories, The Dark Domain.

He has been called the Polish Poe. On the face of it the only similarity with Poe is the era and the style. His stories are different, and follow a slightly different path from that tred by his North American counterpart.

The stories cover a range of topics and several of them deal with trains. His writing is very atmospheric and I thought some of his themes were like some Ligotti tales. In several stories the demon comes from within, but how he brings them out varies.

I am glad someone told me I should read his work.
