Description

The Empty House and Other Ghost Stories

by Algernon Blackwood

About Blackwood:

Although Blackwood wrote a number of horror stories, his mosttypical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe.Good examples are the novels The Centaur, which climaxes with atraveller's sight of a herd of the mythical creatures; and JuliusLeVallon and its sequel The Bright Messenger, which deal withreincarnation and the possibility of a new, mystical evolution inhuman consciousness. His best stories, such as those collected inthe book Incredible Adventures, are masterpieces of atmosphere, construction and suggestion. Born in Shooter's Hill (today part ofsouth-east London, but then part of north-west Kent) and educatedat Wellington College, Algernon Blackwood had a varied career, farming in Canada, operating a hotel, and working as a newspaperreporter in New York City. In his late thirties, Blackwood movedback to England and started to write horror stories. He was verysuccessful, writing 10 books of short stories and appearing on bothradio and television to tell them. He also wrote fourteen novelsand a number of plays, most of which were produced but notpublished. He was an avid lover of nature, and many of his storiesreflect this. Blackwood wrote an autobiography of his early years, Episodes Before Thirty (1923). There is an extensive criticalanalysis of Blackwood's work in Jack Sullivan's book ElegantNightmares: The English Ghost Story From Le Fanu to Blackwood(1978). There is a biography by Mike Ashley (ISBN 0-7867-0928-6)...
