    Visitors to Blackstone Where Fishermen or Hunters It would seem that the earliest visitor with international recognition to the lake was the British short story and novelist Algernon Blackwood.

    persisted on the grass within the shadows thrown by trees and buildings. Arthur watched silently as Merlin stopped on the small rise before the bank fell down to the water and removed his boots.
