Blackwood, Algernon: The Doll and One Other. v1. 12 Jan 2022

A small collection of two titles from 1946, late in Blackwood’s career. Eerie and atmospheric, told with the master’s touch.

“Blackwood plunges with boldness, yet with consistent invention, into the realm of the fantastic.”
(—The Outlook)

The Doll
A little girl is given a doll, which is actually a malignant supernatural entity with macabre designs upon the child’s father.

The Trod
An unusual love-triangle involving a man, a woman, and a call from the Fairy world. Eternal life comes at a high price — the loss of one’s soul and of mortal love.

============
One of the foremost British writers of supernatural tales in the twentieth century, Algernon Blackwood (1869–1951) wrote stories in which the slow accumulation of telling details produced a foreboding atmosphere of almost unendurable tension. Though he wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. The literary critic S. T. Joshi stated, “His work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer’s except Dunsany’s.”

Blackwood’s literary renown began in 1908 with the publication of a highly successful collection of stories, John Silence — Physician Extraordinary, featuring a “psychic doctor.” His two best known stories are probably “The Willows” and “The Wendigo”.
