Algernon Blackwood was one of the most accomplished and consistently excellent of ghost story writers.  His 1914 collection of stories 'Incredible Adventures' has been hailed as perhaps the most perfect collection of ghost stories ever written.  Algernon Blackwood was also a prolific contributor of essays and other material for periodicals and it is probably in this connection that he is here writing to Arthur St John Adcock, who, for many years was sole editor of 'The Bookman'.
