    One thought on “Pan's Garden”

    1. Blackwood's most distinctive contribution to the weird tale is his ability to evoke the unique spirit of a particular natural setting or phenomenon, whether it be a willow-choked river island, a tract of Canadian wilderness, or a wind blowing from the south. Pan's Garden--as its name implies--is composed almost exclusively of such stories, and is therefore essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in Blackwood.Some of Blackwood's best nature stories are not here: "The Wendigo" and "Th [...]

    4. There were a couple good ones. The Destruction of Smith, though completely predictable, was great.I was right in between 2 and 3 stars, but the final story really killed it in the worst way. A potentially interesting story was ruined by Blackwood invoking his favorite setup yet again. An uncle (again) who moved to England from the US (again) who was the guardian (again) of his niece (again) whom he had misconceptions about before meeting (again) only to be blow away by her magical child nature ( [...]
