Description

Classic horror from the prolific author of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, and thought by H. P. Lovecraft to be the best "weird tale" of all time.

"Algernon Blackwood's novella The Willows uses setting like a master. This story is considered by Lovecraft and others to be one of the greatest horror short stories of all time... I can tell you it creeped me out more than I thought it would. It's a simple tale: two men traveling the Danube by boat end up stopping at an island of willows to pass the night, and they begin to realize that they have trespassed upon a land that does not welcome them, and isn't really a part of our own world. I went in knowing that it greatly influenced Lovecraft, and the parallels in ideas and style are readily apparent in the last half of the story... A beautifully written, enjoyably creepy novella." -- ChicagoNow

"Represents a high point in the development of the horror genre -- in fact, horror master H. P. Lovecraft regarded it as the best supernatural tale ever written. More thought-provoking than gory or terrifying, The Willows is a must-read for fans of classic ghost stories." -- NPR.org

"Mind-blowing eeriness... [a] slow-thickening, vibrating, vegetable atmosphere of dread." -- Tor.com

"It's easy to see why this story was revered by Lovecraft and others. It is a textbook example of the classic weird tale, evocatively conjuring the mystery and otherworldly dread that are the hallmarks of such fiction. It moves a little slowly, but patient readers will be well-rewarded with a deeply unsettling slice of cosmic horror." -- My Weird Life
