Meet the Author

Algernon Henry Blackwood, CBE (14 March 1869 - 10 December 1951) was an English short story writer and novelist, one of the most prolific writers of ghost stories in the history of the genre. He was also a journalist and a broadcasting narrator. 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".

    The Wendigo is creepy in a way only Victorian stories can be. It

    The Wendigo is creepy in a way only Victorian stories can be. It is a short story, but an intense one. It did not take me long to read this story but it stayed in my head long after I finished, leaving me with a vague sense of unease and dread for the remainder of the night. I will be keeping this book in my collection and I recommend that horror fans read it if they can.

    Good

    It was well written, detailed, and interesting. I definitely enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It's only 129 pages so it is a fairly quick read. Good for anyone that likes the style of classic novels, especially gothic horror.

    Classic 19th century horror

    Chilling tale based on Native American monster inhabiting the deep north woods. This edition is well done, with few if any typos and bad breaks to annoy the discriminating reader.

    "The Wendigo" is widely regarded as one of Blackwoods

    "The Wendigo" is widely regarded as one of Blackwoods best stories and is among the best and scariest stories ever written. "A Psychical Invasion", also by Blackwood, comes a close second. Anyone who has ever been out in the woods alone, particularly at night, will instantly be transported to that time and place by "The Wendigo". This one is not to be read before bedtime. All of Blackwood's stories, including the less scary or supernatural ones, are the best in English literature. The writing is exquisitely beautiful yet easy to read, evoking images and moods like nothing else I have ever read. If you've never read Algernon Blackwood, you have missed out on a profound and intense experience.

    more from this reviewer

    Read It Before a Night in the Woods

    Hunters head into woods. Hunters feel evil presence. Mythical creature snatches up hunter.

    It's a pretty basic plot as far as campfire horror tales go. But in the hands of a modern horror great, the psychology of the yarn morphs into something completely different. Sometimes it's in a good way, as with the terror that builds with each chapter. Other times, not so much, as with the climax that never quite takes off with the horrific jet fuel of the early parts.

    It's a classic, though, and is best read right before a trip into the great outdoors.
