Summary
A collection of chilling tales of the supernatural by a master of the macabre explores the uncanny and disturbing forces that transform nature in such acclaimed works as 'The Willows,' 'The Wendigo,' 'The Insanity of Jones,' and 'Sand.' Original.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: By turns bizarre, unsettling, spooky, and sublime, Ancient Sorceries and Other Weird Stories showcases nine incomparable stories from master conjuror Algernon Blackwood. Evoking the uncanny spiritual forces of Nature, Blackwood's writings all tread the nebulous borderland between fantasy, awe, wonder, and horror. Here Blackwood displays his best and most disturbing work-including "The Willows," which Lovecraft singled out as "the single finest weird tale in literature"; "The Wendigo"; "The Insanity of Jones"; and "Sand."
