The Willows, his most celebrated story, was influenced heavily by Blackwood's own trips down the Danube River. It tells the story of two campers who pick the wrong place to sleep for the night, a place where another dimension impinges on our own.

This is one of my favorite stories. Blackwood does a great job describing the numinous and how an encounter with powerful and apathetic forces would be. The narration is good, but the recording has a cyclical softening that is annoying (to me; it's not a huge volume difference).
