Margaret’s mört

“So eat up your mört, Margaret, and take no notice of all these gloomy thoughts.”

My review of this story in the context of THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN by Thomas Mann: http://weirdmonger.wordpress.com/186-2/#comment-292

I think the story entitled WOOD is Aickman’s masterpiece, but, without teaching any granny reading this to suck dead mörts, I don’t want WOOD muddled up with INTO THE WOOD.
