English author Algernon Henry Blackwood (1869-1951) was one of the most prolific short story writers and a pioneer in the genre of ghost stories. Jack Sulliven writes: “Blackwood’s life parallels his work more neatly than perhaps that of any other ghost story writer. Like his lonely but fundamentally optimistic protagonists, he was a combination of mystic and outdoorsman; when he wasn’t steeping himself in occultism, including Rosicrucianism and Buddhism, he was likely to be skiing or mountain climbing.” Four stories are included in this collection: The Empty House, The Willows, The Listener, and The Wendigo. These spine-tingling tales will make any listener’s flesh crawl. Well-known actor Hugh Ross brilliantly captures the unsettling atmosphere of suspense and dread of Blackwood’s tales in this reading.
