Blackwood, Algernon: Jimbo: A Fantasy. v1. 22 Jan 2022

This is by no means a children’s book. It is a book for adults, about children, and childhood, and the powers of imagination. This is a dark fantasy about an imaginative youngster who is severely injured and, while lost in unconsciousness, finds himself imprisoned in the dreadful Empty House by that dark monster the Inmate, and surrounded by the very strange and somehow sinister Frightened Children.

“… a delicious book, and one that should be read by all who long at times to escape from this working-day world into the region of haunting and half-remembered things.”
(— 1909 review, The Daily Chronicle)

============
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”.
