14 March 1869 - 10 December 1951
Bio from the “Literary Gothic” Page
British author, adventurer, newspaper reporter, factory owner, "psychical researcher" — Blackwood's career and interests were varied, although he is best known now as one of the foremost authors of ghost stories in the early C20, perhaps one of the best ever. His own interest in and understanding of "spiritualism" as well as of human psychology is responsible for the impressive power and effectiveness of his ghostly tales.
"The Empty House and other Ghost Stories"
I read him decades ago and still do, especially the here mentioned Short Story - Collection.

Here the WELCOME-Text of this Page:
Blackwood Stories is your source of printer-friendly publications of Algernon Blackwood's immortal writings, novels, and stories. All stories are from the public domain and are formatted for any desktop printer. Stories are downloadable in the Adobe Acrobat PDF format and sized to a letter sheet. We realize that this is anachronistic in the age of e-books and e-readers, but a few of us still enjoy reading with paper in hand. And it's not fun reading a supernatural story on a computer! So enjoy these extraordinary tales!
