    Oliver Onions (a pseudonym of George Oliver's) was a significant English novelist. He wrote this collection of ghost stories under the title Widdershins. The first story, "The Beckoning Fair One", is widely regarded as one of the best in the genre of horror fiction, especially psychological horror. The story can be read as narrating the gradual possession of the protagonist by a mysterious and possessive feminine spirit, or as a psychotic outbreak culminating in catatonia and murder.

    This creepy tale from Widdershins follows the same pattern as the others in the book: the supernatural element in it can be otherwise explained - that is, the strange happenings can be understood as being supernatural or merely mental aberrations of the protagonist. In either case, the story is meticulously written and quite chilling.
