Short review of Algernon Blackwood tales

Good stuff :thoughtfull +imaginative. The top title :"The Wendigo" is a long short story, set in the Canadian wilderness at the end of the 19th cen, about a malign wind spirit. It is inspired by Indian myths. It's hard to over recommend it, in my estimation, as an outstanding example of the 'weird' /supernatural tale.

Excellent stories, Well read.

Really enjoyed all the shorter stories but the wendigo is read better by others.
Not to take away the narrators expertise he is excellent. The kit bag is very unsettling and scary.
A great collection of stories very well read.
