  For me, it is Blackwood's idea of nature as sentient that dazzles - even more than his weird tales of psychic detectives and retributive ghosts and ancient demons summoned by old words and spells. Selected from the entire body of Algernon Blackwood's work, this collection of short stories contains his finest writing. Published in a total of five volumes, Volume 2 contains eight stories including The Willows, The Wendigo, The Doll, and The Trod.
