No people but themselves there, watching the Danube rising over both banks, landing on an island after a vigorous effort, the two plan to rest on overnight. This most famous work of Blackwood’s is one of those classic short stories of weird horror mentioned alongside pieces by Lovecraft, Howard, Machen, Bierce, and Chambers as worthy of even a discerning reader.
The main plot of “The Willows” is about two long time friends who are taking a canoe trip down the Danube River.

This is a very good story by itself and Blackwood was a master of setting and intimate characterization. And see if the saucex I thought of is the ending we are given. We happen to have camped in a spot where their region touches ours, where the veil between has worn thin-horrors!
This story is still relevant today. But even more a different world exists, a hidden area, an evil place where we can’t get to but know it’s there.
Our thoughts make spirals in their world Blackood enjoyed how, once again, same as with The Man Whom the Trees LovedBlackwood pits Man against Nature but not in the usual way such as when people must cope with tornadoes, droughts, earthquakes, and floods.

Soon, the narrator realizes that something is dreadfully wrong with the island. In the late s, Blackwood had a television program on the BBC on which he read.

The forces of the region drew nearer with the coming of night. It’s for the reader to determine what is loss and what isn’t, which is half the fun in the two books I’ve read by the author. Two men are attempting to canoe the entire course of the Danube as Blackwood himself had done until they are forced by high flood waters to take refuge on a tiny, crumbling, willow algenron island.
