The Willows By Algernon Blackwood Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Two friends are on a canoe trip down the Danube River. At one point, they see a traveler in his boat. The man appears to be warning them and ultimately crosses himself before hurtling forward on the river, out of sight. During the night, mysterious forces emerge from within the forest, including dark shapes which seem to trace the narrator's consciousness, tapping sounds outside their tent, shifting gong-like noises, bizarre shadows, and the appearance that the willows have changed location. The precise nature of the mysterious entities in "The Willows" is unclear, and they appear at times malevolent or treacherous, while at times simply mystical and almost divine. Overall, the story suggests that the landscape is actually a frontier of another world.
