Ancient Sorceries and Other Weird Stories
by Algernon Blackwood and S. T. Joshi and S. T. Joshi




Overview -
By turns bizarre, unsettling, spooky, and sublime, Ancient Sorceries and Other Weird Stories showcases nine incomparable stories from master conjuror Algernon Blackwood. Evoking the uncanny spiritual forces of Nature, Blackwood's writings all tread the nebulous borderland between fantasy, awe, wonder, and horror. Here Blackwood displays his best and most disturbing work-including The Willows, which Lovecraft singled out as the single finest weird tale in literature; The Wendigo; The Insanity of Jones; and Sand.
