Appendix Z Algernon Blackwood



Appendix Z Algernon Blackwood

Blackwood is one of Lovecraft and CAS' literary fathers. I had heard of him long before I ever read any of his works and his writing did not disappoint. His short story 'The Willows' is a pre-mythos tale and perhaps one directly linked to Lovecraft's development of the elder horror or CAS touch of the wondrous and the macabre. Blackwood can take the mundane and drag it into darkness; into a realm of disturbing horror and otherness. His work is a great example of how to take a 'mundane' fantasy adventure and twist it into something much stranger and grander and frightening.
