(William Wymark Jacobs)
UK flag (1863 - 1943)

William Wymark Jacobs is known especially for his sea stories. His familiarity with the wharves and the people who frequented them gave him material for these stories. He was also known for some of his short ghost tales and stories of mystery and the macabre, such as the "Monkey's Paw".
