About this Episode

Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) knew a lot.

In reaction to his Sandemanian childhood, he still remained a religious person, all his life.
In his "weird tales" Blackwood tried to map a religious way
forward -- through an inspired imagination.
I used to put Arthur Machen at the top of the list
of writers of supernatural horror.
Because of a change in me, Blackwood is now number one.
This podcast, together with Episode 103, which comes next,
