Algernon Blackwood and More Horrors

Goo morning!  There's some quite good stuff today, including a collection of dark fantasy stories by Algernon Blackwood that ere praised by H. P. Lovecraft, a continuing serial, audio horror at Pseudopod ( a trio of flash horrors), a collection of audio horror stories at LibriVox (including Poe, Lovecraft, Blackwood, Clark Ashton Smith, Hawthorne, and more), flash fiction, comic books, and more.

• At Project Gutenberg: Incredible Adventures by Algernon Blackwood. Weird. Dark Fantasy. 1914.
      "In the volume titled Incredible Adventures occur some of the finest tales which the author has yet produced, leading the fancy to wild rites on nocturnal hills, to secret and terrible aspects lurking behind stolid scenes, and to unimaginable vaults of mystery below the sands and pyramids of Egypt; all with a serious finesse and delicacy that convince where a cruder or lighter treatment would merely amuse. Some of these accounts are hardly stories at all, but rather studies in elusive impressions and half-remembered snatches of dream. Plot is everywhere negligible, and atmosphere reigns untrammelled:" H. P. Lovecraft quoted at Wikipedia.

• At Silver Blade: "The Greatest Shade – Part 4" by Bryan Wein. Fantasy.
       "You see any red uniforms?” Adewale replied curtly as his fingers flew across the keys. The glow lamps along the walls dimmed, as did the luminescence on the ceiling. “Those men could be with anyone.”
