Overview

Algernon Henry Blackwood (1869-1951) was an English writer of tales of the supernatural. In his late thirties, Blackwood started to write horror stories. He was very successful, writing ten books of short stories and appearing on both radio and television to tell them. He also wrote fourteen novels and a number of plays, most of which were produced but not published. He was an avid lover of nature, and many of his stories reflect this. Although Blackwood wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. Good examples are the novels The Centaur (1911), which climaxes with a traveller's sight of a herd of the mythical creatures; and Julius LeVallon (1916) and its sequel The Bright Messenger (1921), which deal with reincarnation and the possibility of a new, mystical evolution in human consciousness. His best stories, such as those collected in the book Incredible Adventures (1914), are masterpieces of atmosphere, construction and suggestion.

This is a Google scan of a book. It is supposed to be the Blackwood title, but once you get past the title page it is 400+ pages of a chemistry book. They scanned the wrong book.

A few of the stories were a little scary. A lot of them didn't seem to end really they just abruptly stopped. Quite a few of the stories mentioned someone named Jim Shorthouse ( a name my brain insisted on reading as Shortarse ) but it never seemed to be the same guy. This drove me crazy. All in all though it was a pretty good collection of shorts.
