The preprojective algebra and the trivial extension algebra of a Dynkin quiver (in bipartite orientation) are very close to being a Koszul dual pair of algebras. In this case the usual duality theory may be adapted to show that each algebra has a periodic bimodule resolution built using the other algebra and some extra data: an algebra automorphism. A general theory of such lsquoalmost Koszulrsquo algebras is developed and other examples are given.
