Blackwood, Algernon: Selections from “Tongues of Fire”. v1. 15 Jan 2022

From the master story-teller, eleven tales from Tongues of Fire. Only the eponymous story is truly macabre; others take us on tours of extra-dimensional experiences. The final three describe encounters with the intense powers of nature.

These were retrieved from various online archives.
Unavailable titles that are NOT included:
A Continuous Performance, The World-Dream of McAllister, The Other Woman, The Open Window, Petershin and Mr. Snide, The Spell of Egypt, A Man of Earth, The Laughter of Courage, Nephele.

Brief summaries of the stories:
Spoiler:
Tongues of Fire
Ceceilia and Harold suffer the consequences of their gossiping, fault-finding, denigrating ways.

The Little Beggar
… The boy, for some reason, caught his attention and his interest vividly; … his general air of effort and distress, struggling with a bag too big and heavy for him to manage…

Malahide and Forden
Three friends on a walking tour in the country find themselves in a surreal situation.

The Pikestaffe Case
Miss Speke’s lodger, a professor of higher mathmatics, has turned an ornate mirror to the wall and webbed the room with fine silk threads. After more mysterious activity, her curiosity is overwhelming, and she begins to wish Mr. Thorley would leave.

Alexander Alexander
Since childhood, she has been fascinated by this odd, double-named personage.

The Olive
A young man, retrieving an olive dropped by a lovely girl, experiences love at first sight — and more…

Picking Fir-Cones
A young boy describes how he flew…

The Man Who Was Milligan

============
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”.
