The Willows

The Willows - Algernon Blackwood

Definitely a good book for the Halloween season.


Two men spend the night on an island made of sand in the middle of a large swamp on the Danube during flood season.


It is being slowly eroded by the river.

Willow bushes as far as the eye can see.


But that's not the scary part.



Don't think of them.

Don't think of fear.


It wasn't an otter!


I wonder if the boys would mind if I didn't walk to the end of the driveway with them in the mornings for a while.




I'm really liking this author.


Another creepy one.


However, I think I need to choose something without trees next time.

It makes walking around my place in the dark very unnerving.
