Hugh Walpole recommends
The Purple Cloud (1901)
M P Shiel
"A flaming genius! At his best he is not to be touched, because there is no one else like him."
Thunder on the Left (1925)
Christopher Morley
"It is personal to every reader, it will become for every one a reflection of himself. I fancy that here, as always where work is fine and true, the author has created something not as he would but as he must, and here an interpreter of a world more wonderful than he himself knows."
