Algernon Blackwood is one of the most important authors in the history of weird fiction and literary horror, and his work deserves to be universally recognized. His turn-of-the-century occult sagas of the natural and supernatural world had a huge impact on many 20th century masters....
..including H.P. Lovecraft, who believed that his masterwork THE WILLOWS was the greatest supernatural tale in all of English literature.
THE WILLOWS is a chilling and gorgeous story of two friends rafting down the flooded Danube, and slowly becoming deranged by a mysterious force at work on the branch-choked river. But in the 110 years since its original publication, it's floated in and out of print, without the wide recognition it deserves.
Who better than the modern master Paul Pope (BATTLING BOY, BATMAN: YEAR 100), whose energetic brush line seems to writhe and vibrate on the page, to illustrate and illuminate this tale of a raging river become astonishingly, malevolently conscious, and two human souls perched on the brink of madness?
