Algernon Blackwood is one of the all-time Masters of the Supernatural genre and the five tales in this volume are well up with his best. First published in 1908,this edition is that of 1969,and has a short but interesting Authors note included (from the 1942 edition) indicating just how the stories came to be written.
They all concern "Psychic Doctor`"John Silence,who is a sort of Sherlock Holmes of the ghost world.
He undertakes five cases here,which are 'A Psychical Invasion','Ancient Sorceries','The Nemesis of Fire','Secret Worship' and 'The Camp of the Dog'.
A real must-have for any enthusiast. ( )
