''Nicholas Royle’s stories are ''immaculately sinister'', according to Olivia Laing in the Times Literary Supplement, while Phil Baker, in the Sunday Times, described Royle as ''a real craftsman of disquiet''. In his third collection, The Dummy & Other Uncanny Stories, Royle focuses on archetypes and phenomena that, through their particular melding of the familiar and the unfamiliar, produce uneasy, or uncanny, effects. In these stories he writes about doppelgängers, ghosts, dummies, disconnected body parts, impaired vision, the dead and the prospect of death, not without a macabre sense of humour''.
