Here are the scariest short stories ever set in the Canada woods. They are about the primordial fears faced by Canadians. Perhaps the scariest is the classic horror story “The Wendigo” which is set in Ontario’s Lake of the Woods region.
These short works of fiction were penned by Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951), the great English horror-story writer, after he spent two years living in Toronto and Muskoka in 1890-2.
John Robert Colombo, the compiler of this collection of eight of Blackwood’s tales, contributes an illuminating preface along with notes on the author, his Canadian years, and these short stories.
