William Wymark Jacobs was an English author of short stories and novels. He is now best remembered for his macabre tales like The Monkey's Paw and The Well (both included in The Lady of the Barge). However the majority of his wonderful stories are humorous in tone. His favourite subjects were marine life: men who go down to the sea in ships of moderate tonnage. His stories attracted the respect of such writers as P. G. Wodehouse, who mentioned Jacobs in his autobiographical work Bring on the Girls.

    " I read it for The Monkey's Paw... A tv movie that scared the he'll out of my forty some years ago. The story was not quite up to my childhood memory. The stories in the selection were fair to good which is something I usually don't say about short story selections. "

About the Author

W. W. Jacobs (1863–1943) is considered a master of the macabre tale, mostly for his work The Monkey’s Paw, a classic horror short story. He was a master at weaving terror and suspense into scenes of everyday life. Nevertheless, his popularity in his own lifetime arose mostly due to his amusing maritime tales of life along the London docks.
