John Silence by Algernon Blackwood

"Not since the days of Poe have we read anything in his peculiar genre fit to be compared with this remarkable book. . . . He brings to his work an extraordinary knowledge of strange and unusual forms of spiritualistic phenomena, and steeps his pages in an atmosphere of real terror and expectancy."—Observer.

"When one says that Mr. Blackwood's work approaches genius, the phrase is used in no light connection. This very remarkable book is a considerable and lasting addition to the literature of our time."—Morning Post.

"These are the most haunting and original ghost stories since 'Uncle Silas' appeared."—Morning Leader.

"In the field which he has chosen, Mr. Blackwood stands without rival among contemporary writers."—Manchester Guardian.

"As original, as powerful, and as artistically written as that little masterpiece of Lytton's, 'The Haunters and the Haunted.' He bears favourable comparison with Le Fanu. . . . A volume which has an extraordinary power of fascination."—Birmingham Daily Post.

"The story is absolutely arresting in its imaginative power."—Daily Telegraph.
