I openly adore Blackwood. At first I had ambiguous feelings, I'd heard great things but on first reading of this book found his effect somewhat hit and miss. But Blackwood is a prime example of my favourite kind of ghostly writer; the one whose work leaves an impression long after you've finished reading the story. His words weave evocative moods and atmospheres and draw the reader into mysterious twilight worlds of nature. Certainly worth persevering with, for the experience that it offers.
