Description

From The Empty House: "Certain houses, like certain persons, manage somehow to proclaim at once their character for evil. With houses it is the aroma of evil deeds committed under a particular roof, long after the actual doers have passed away, that makes the gooseflesh come and the hair rise. Something of the original passion of the evil-doer, and of the horror felt by his victim, enters the heart of the innocent watcher, and he becomes suddenly conscious of tingling nerves, creeping skin, and a chilling of the blood. He is terror-stricken without apparent cause..." Also included in this volume are "A Haunted Island," "A Case of Eavesdropping," "Keeping His Promise," "With Intent to Steal," "The Wood of the Dead," "Smith: An Episode in a Lodging-House," "A Suspicious Gift," "The Strange Adventures of a Private Secretary in New York," "Skeleton Lake: An Episode in Camp."

Author Biography

Algernon Henry Blackwood (1869 - 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."
