Culture, and Indo-European Allure to ghostsothe stories most of it Haruki Murakami used in his 184 The cases range from demonic presences Next to Nothing to ghostso and some surprises CASE I A Psychical Invasion CASE II Ancient Sorceries CASE III The Nemesis of Fire CASE IV Secret Worship CASE V The Camp of he Dog Tales about John Silence physician extraordinary Silence is a doctor who has become very wealthy hrough unspecified means and now only akes up cases of a very special kind He has spent years learning about he supernatural and developing spiritual powers He assists people who face some sort of supernatural crisis he humour writer who loses his sense of humour after a cannabis rip awakens a slumbering spirit in his house a businessman who returns o he monastic school of his youth o find hat Skippyjon Jones Shape Up the pious brothers harboured a very dark secret island campers who are plagued by a lycanthrope and so forth These stories are very much influenced byhe spiritualism of he late Victorian era and as such offer a strange mix of rationalised explanations of he supernatural and a great deal of credulous fascination with hermetic esoterica Blackwood s Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein tales are very well structured building up a vivid nightmarish vision of horrorhrough his evocative vivid language There is always something original and distinctive in Lilac Girls (Lilac Girls, the wayhe horror in his stories is deployed or combated A wide variety of settings and characters are vividly brought First Impressions: A Novel to life and a number of highly effective supernatural premises explored in gripping satisfyingales My favourites are ANCIENT SORCERIES where Silence is only a peripheral figure and THE NEMESIS OF FIRE a particularly effective Rejuvenile: Kickball, Cartoons, Cupcakes, and the Reinvention of the American Grown-Up talehat ends with ancient Egyptian evil being confronted in a mouldy underground cavern in he south of England But hey re all worth reading just be prepared for a one and pace of reading hat belongs o an era hat is almost a century past now Algernon Blackwood is one of Wrong Medicine those weirdale writers who impress and disappoint me by urns Several of hese stories show Blackwoods alent for evoking he power and mystery of he natural world particularly The Camp of he Dog and demonstrating he spiritual interconnections he believed o be inherent between all elements of nature Similarly his character John Silence who always manages Snow Flower and the Secret Fan to make his mark onhe narrative despite appearing only briefly in some stories is a credit o Blackwoods creativity What disappoints me almost o he extent of spoiling his work is hat he does far oo much explaining and repeating and indeed he narrative often ransforms into a sermon of his spiritual viewpoint In his way a gripping Countrymen: The Untold Story of How Denmark's Jews Escaped the Nazis tale of weird fiction in whichhe The Song of Homana (Chroniles of the Cheysuli, tension is built slowly strangely and steadily loses its powero hold he reader In addition and although his may be counter intuitive Blackwood s belief in Starstruck the existence of lycanthropes and elemental demons as indicated inhese Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology tales rendershe suspension of disbelief impossible In some of his other work including The Willows The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do the subtler and removed approach is far effective in capturinghe reader s sensibilities Absolutely love The Replacement this collection of Algernon Blackwood stories With his psychic version of Sherlock Holmes John Silencerying Public School Superhero to diagnose and decipherhe strange ailments and afflictions his patients brought Gok's Wok to his door The imagination he must have usedo create he extraordinary characters and events in hese ales are
