Jimbo (1909)
"Jimbo is a delicious book, and one that should be read by all who long at times to escape from this working-day world into the region of haunting and half-remembered things."

The Human Chord (1910)
"It is unique, and should be a matter of national pride."--Hilaire Belloc in The Westminster Gazette.

The Wendigo (1910)
It's nuthin'--nuthin' but what those lousy fellers believe when they've bin hittin' the bottle too long--a sort of great animal that lives up yonder, quick as lightning in its tracks, an' bigger'n anything else in the Bush, an' ain't supposed to be very good to look at--that's all!

The Centaur (1911)
One of the greatest "mystical" works by Blackwood, wherein he explores man's empathy with the unknown forces of the universe.

The Man Whom the Trees Loved (1912)
An exquisitely wrought and truly imaginative conception.

A Prisoner in Fairyland (1913)
A curious, unusual, puzzling type of book. The story of the awakening of a London financier who, after long years spent in the amassing of a fortune, reverts to his early dream of becoming a great philanthropist.

The Wave (1916)
A woman and two men who have come together in a former incarnation--not altogether happily--now have a second opportunity to work out the problem of their relations. A philosophical romance.
