Blackwood, Algernon.: The Damned and Other Stories. v1. 18 June 07
Algernon Blackwood is a great horror writer. The stories (and one novel) included in this collection are representative of his wonderful writing style in evoking a sense of otherness and of supernatural terror. Here's a quote below:
"Algernon Blackwood was an English Supernaturalist and Horror story writer. He had remarkable mastery at evoking feelings of mysticism and cosmic experience and his skill in creating an atmosphere of unrelieved horror has made him a must read author for all horror buffs."
And another quote:
"Algernon Blackwood is right at the top of the class when it comes to spinning supernatural yarns. His style is quiet, subtle and articulate. Anyone who enjoys ghost stories and tales of other-worldly unease should enjoy this collection, which contains some of his best work, enormously."
I hope you enjoy this collection.
