Blackwood, Algernon: The Extra Day. v1. 23 Jan 2022

A delightful book for readers of all ages. A fable-like tale about three children growing up in the Old Mill House in the Victorian era. Uncle Felix comes to visit, and his magical storytelling opens the gates to imagination and adventure — adventure where no grownup rules apply, where magic is real, and wonder is everywhere. Uncle Felix says, “Time always prevents, doesn’t it? If only we could make it stop — get behind time, as it were — we might have a chance. Some day, perhaps, we shall.”

The Extra Day is a wonderful book altogether, full of insight, replete with fanciful extravagance, compact with imagination.”
(—1915 review, The Daily Telegraph)

============
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”.
