W.W. Jacobs’s The Monkey’s Paw and Other Tales of Mystery and the Macabre includes eighteen of the author’s effective stories that feature a palpable dose of suspense, owing largely to their expert pacing. Jacobs’s stories, however, are largely devoid of any nuance, literary flourishes or memorably eloquent passages; rather these are simply solid, well-constructed, straightforward, workmanlike tales.
