About the Author

Born in Wapping, W.W. Jacobs was an English author of novels and short stories. Before finding the success to allow him to write full time, Jacobs worked as a civil servant for many years. While best known for his horror stories like “The Monkey’s Paw” and “The Toll House”, much of Jacob’s work is actually humorous, including efforts like Many Cargoes, The Skipper’s Wooing, and Sea Urchins. His output of stories slowed greatly after the First World War, and Jacobs began to primarily write adaptations of his own short stories for the stage. Jacobs passed away in 1943.

This is a great short story. Many more stories and movies have been created from this. A creepy story that will always stand the test of time. Be careful what you wish for!
