Book 30: The Willows

Algernon Blackwood, contemporary of HP Lovecraft, wrote one of the all time creepy short stories.  The Willows really digs under the surface of what panic and fear feels like and it resonates, especially with anyone who had encountered odd sounds or sights in nature.  It's a bit tough starting, but short enough that once it grabs, it doesn't let go.  I strongly recommend making the time to read this in one sitting as the sense of dread builds slowly.
