About This Book
A beautiful gift edition of some of the most eerie and unnerving tales from one of Britain's greatest proponents of ghost stories and weird fiction, containing H.P. Lovecraft's favourite story
'Of the quality of Mr. Blackwood's genius there can be no dispute.' H.P. Lovecraft
A traveller is trapped in a remote French hill town with oddly feline inhabitants; an old sea captain's ravings build to a terrifying climax one story night; two friends camping on a lonely will-covered island are haunted by the twisted trees and sinister shapes in the water.
Algernon Blackwood was one of Britain's greatest ever proponents of weird and supernatural tales. This collection contains four of his most otherwordly creations: 'Ancient Sorceries', 'The Listener', 'the Sea Fit' and 'The Willows', a story so curiously unnerving it was hailed by H. P. Lovecraft as his favourite.
