Algernon Blackwood - The Centaur

A Supernatural Fantasy by Algernon Blackwood
A newspaper reporter wants a change from the hectic meaningless life he is leading. He wants a simpler life. One that takes him, perhaps, back to nature. Aboard a steamer, he meets a man and boy. They seem to be going home. Not just back, but home. This man and boy are friendly but at the same time distant. They may possess the secret for which he is looking. He finds himself on a strange voyage and an even stranger trip to the hills of the ancients and the beings that are 'as old as stone'. Can he find and keep the contentment he seeks? And who is this strange being that is trying to show him the way? Would you answer the call of the pan pipes, if you heard them? One of the greatest "mystical" works by Blackwood, wherein he explores man's empathy with the unknown forces of the universe.
