W. W. Jacobs

Cover ImageW. W. Jacobs was an English author of short stories and novels. Although much of his work was humorous, he is most famous for his horror story “The Monkey’s Paw“.

Arthur Linfoot noted, in his diary entry for 8 June 1914, that he had read “one or two of W.W. Jacobs’ short stories”. Clearly we cannot know which.

Arthur Linfoot also noted, on 17 May 1917, what appears to have been some kind of stage adaptation of The Monkey’s Paw, performed by the Merry Mauves at Bailleul.

W. W. Jabobs’ complete works remain available as an Amazon KIndle book.
