WW Jacobs


Greatest for his 1902 brief tale “The Monkey’s Paw,” Jacobs also penned popular books like a Master of Art. After their studies at the College or university of London’s Birkbeck University, he worked like a civil servant. He became a full-time article writer following the publication of his 1898 brief story collection Ocean Urchins. A lot of his functions were illustrated from the English artist Can Owen. He and his wife, suffragette Agnes Eleanor Williams, resolved in Essex, Britain, and welcomed a girl in 1901. His brief tale “The Interruption” was modified right into a 1955 film (entitled Footsteps in the Fog) starring Stewart Granger.

1English dramatist and story writer, usually of tales involving the sea and village life and often dealing with supernatural or horror elements. He was a clerk until finding success as a full-time author with his first collected stories, published as "Many Cargoes" in 1896. He is best known for "The Monkey's Paw", a 1902 tale about a talisman which grants its owner three wishes, though inevitably those come with a heavy price.
2Grandfather of Olwen Wymark.
