One of Blackwood’s few epistolary stories, told solely through diary extracts. A man of nervous temperament, with a history of mental ill-health in his family, may or may not be receiving visits by a previous tenant. A tenant very dead. Another tale most likely inspired by Blackwood’s time in New York.
Algernon Blackwood, one of the greatest masters of weird fiction in literary history. There is an extraordinary unity in the work of this great author. All his books deal with the strange, supernatural, terror, macabre, other-worldly.
