I used to tell strange, wild, improbable tales akin to ghost stories, and discovered a taste for spinning yarns.

Author introduction

Algernon Henry Blackwood, CBE (14 March 1869 – 10 December 1951) was an English broadcasting narrator, journalist, novelist and short story writer, and among the most prolific ghost story writers in the history of the genre. The literary critic S. T. Joshi stated, "His work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer's except Dunsany's."[1] and that his short story collection Incredible Adventures (1914) "may be the premier weird collection of this or any other century".[2]
