The Man Whom the Trees Lovedby Algernon Blackwood
Algernon Henry Blackwood was one of the most prolific writers of ghost stories in the history of the genre. S. T. Joshi has stated that "his work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer's except Dunsany's" and that his short story collection Incredible Adventures (1914) "may be the premier weird collection of this or any other century".

He loved the trees the way a lover loves . . . And perhaps they loved him, too. Not wisely -- and too well.

The Man Whom the Trees Loved was the first story I had read by Blackwood, and it is still my favorite. The most amazing aspect of Blackwood's writing is his ability to build tension slowly so that you forget you are reading a work of horror. His characters reflect ideas and they all converge and combust with one another.
