A Descent into Egypt

A Descent into Egypt is a horror novella by American author Algernon Blackwood.

A Descent into Egypt is a mesmerizing novella that plunges readers into the mystical depths of ancient Egypt. Narrated by a man known as the "Author," it unfolds as a vivid recounting of his experiences during a metaphysical journey through Egypt's sacred landscapes. 

Blackwood's rich prose and keen sense of atmosphere immerse readers in a world where the boundaries between the material and spiritual realms blur. The novella is a transcendent exploration of mysticism, cosmic forces, and the timeless allure of Egypt's enigmatic past, offering a thought-provoking narrative that lingers in the mind long after the final page.
