The Wendigo is widely regarded as one of Blackwoods best stories and is among the best and scariest stories ever written. A Psychical Invasion, also by Blackwood, comes a close second. Anyone who has ever been out in the woods alone, particularly at night, will instantly be transported to that time and place by The Wendigo. This one is not to be read before bedtime. All of Blackwoods stories, including the less scary or supernatural ones, are the best in English literature. The writing is exquisitely beautiful yet easy to read, evoking images and moods like nothing else I have ever read. If youve never read Algernon Blackwood, you have missed out on a profound and intense experience.

Precisely the story not to sit around the campfire and read aloud, which is what makes it so perfect for just that. This is one of the greatest creepy, lost in the scary woods stories ever written. It ends, and you just wish there was more.
