WEFOUNDThe Works of M. P. Shiel - a Study in Bibliography


My ideal weird author would be a kind of synthesis of the atmospheric tensity of Poe, the cosmic range & luxuriant invention of Dunsany, the bottom-touching implications of Machen, & the breathlessly convincing unrealism of Algernon Blackwood.

I wish there could be a single writer with the sheer genius of Poe, the imaginative scope of Blackwood, and the magical prose of Dunsany!

“Bierce seldom realises the atmospheric possibilities of his themes as vividly as Poe; and much of his work contains a certain touch of naivete, prosaic angularity, or early-American provincialism which contrasts somewhat with the efforts of later horror-masters. Nevertheless the genuineness and artistry of his dark intimations are always unmistakable, so that his greatness is in no danger of eclipse.” (“Supernatural Horror in Literature,” 408)
