Heimito von Doderer (1896-1966) is known best as the author of voluminous realistic novels - Die Strudlhofstiege oder Melzer und die Tiefe der Jahre, 1951 (The Strudelhof Steps); and Die Damonen. Nach der Chronik des Sektionsrates Geyrenhoff, 1956 (The Demons), in which he described the Austrian society of the first half of the 20th century. However, all of Doderer's works - both his novels and short stories - also contain some elements of 'the uncanny' (Ger. das Unheimliche). The article attempts to explore the various aspects of this trait, manifested in some of the writer's short stories, as part of the phenomenon of 'strangeness' (Ger. das Fremde), as defined by Paul Ricoeur. The analysed stories will include Die Dogge Wanda (The Mastiff Named Wanda, 1932), Begegnung im Morgengrauen (Encounter in the First Light of Dawn; 1933), Der Oger (The Ogre; 1958) and Trethofen (1961).
