"A weird story, to be a serious aesthetic effort, must form primarily a picture of a mood-and such a picture certainly does not call for any clever jack-in-the-box fillip. There are weird stories which more or less conform to this description . . . especially in Blackwood's Incredible Adventures." So wrote H. P. Lovecraft, who regarded Algernon Blackwood as perhaps the greatest weird writer of his day and Incredible Adventures (1914) as among Blackwood's finest works. This collection of five novellas not only presents weird scenarios of extraordinary richness and bizarrerie-the "regeneration" of a blasé English nobleman by means of pagan rituals on a mountaintop; a dismal house haunted by the souls of those whom its fanatical owner condemned to hell; the sapping of a man's spirit as he performs an ancient ceremony in the sands of Egypt-but also probes the characters' reactions to the bizarre with unfailing subtlety and acuteness. The result is a landmark in the history of weird fiction. With an introduction by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on supernatural literature. Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) was a British writer and author of one of the richest bodies of weird fiction in all literary history, including such volumes as The Listener and Other Stories (1907), John Silence-Physician Extraordinary (1908), Pan's Garden (1912), and the novels The Human Chord (1910) and The Centaur (1911). In 1949 he was made a Commander of the British Empire.
