Praise

“Of the quality of Mr Blackwood’s genius there can be no dispute; for no one has ever approached the skill, seriousness, and minute fidelity whith which he records the overtones of strangeness in ordinary things and experiences.”
—H.P. Lovecraft

“To many, including H.P. Lovecraft, ‘The Willows’ is the finest story in the canon of supernatural fiction. (…) Blackwood himself is, arguably, the central figure in the British supernatural literature of the twentieth century.”
—Michael Dirda, New York Review of Books
