Zwielicht Sonderband 1 Der englische Autor Algernon Blackwood (1869 – 1951), war bekannt für seine von unterschwelligem Schrecken geprägten Gruselgeschichten. Sein Werk wurde stark von den Eindrücken seiner zahlreichen Reisen beeinflusst. Auch hatte er eine starke Neigung zu allem Esoterischen, und gab an, selbst Geistererscheinungen gesehen zu haben, die er in seinen Geschichten verarbeitete. Dem Publikum wurde Blackwood später auch als Radiomoderator bekannt. Seine eindringliche Art, phantastische Geschichten zu erzählen, fesselte in den 40er Jahren eine treue Schar Zuhörer an die Radioempfänger.

The Centaur is a story of a man who is uncomfortable in the modern world and seeks to find the relief from this feeling. He takes vacation to get back in touch with Nature, and heads for Caucasus, the land, which he believes is not yet polluted with the imprint of progress. On his way, he encounters several individuals who argue both for and against the reality of his discomfort and the meaning behind it. Thus, the whole story turns into an opposition and, at the same time, friendship between two sorts of man: the skeptic and the dreamer. The conflict reaches its climax as climax as the travellers see a herd of the mythical creatures, centaurs. This encounter arouses the feeling of supernatural horror. The characters feel the outside force dominating them. Yet, each handles this situation differently. Some get obsessed, while others come away with a feeling of discovered truth. A deeply philosophical novel about our inner drive to discover the mysteries of the world, that remains topical for all times.
