THE DEEP ONES: "Et in Sempiternum Pereant" by Charles Williams
Stevenson developed a desire to write early in life, having no interest in the family business of lighthouse engineering. He was often abroad, usually for health reasons, and his journeys led to some of his early literary works. Publishing his first volume at the age of 28, Stevenson became a literary celebrity during his life when works such as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde were released to eager audiences.

Published by Dodo Press, United Kingdom Brand new Book. Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson , was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of Neo-romanticism in English literature. Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson's popularity and allow him a place in the Western canon. Stevenson was a celebrity in his own time, but with the rise of modern literature after World War I, he was seen for much of the 20th century as a writer of the second class, relegated to children's literature and horror genres.

I'm uncertain whether I've read any Williams before, and fortuitously I came across a couple references to him and his writing in the past month. Looking forward to this story online for me. I read one Williams novel about 30 or 40 years ago. All I remember is that some of the characters were staging a play.

I've read about half most of Willams' novels, but I've never read anything by him in a short form before. On the title and closing quotation: Et in Sempiternum Pereant or "And May They Be Forever Damned", though this elides the suggestive meaning of sempiternum as a hardwearing woolen garment, worn perhaps by a penitent or traveller? E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle from Dante's Divine Comedy , Canto XXXIV, line and glossed by Longfellow "Thence we came forth to rebehold the stars", being the closing lines of Inferno, having traveled entirely through and setting sail now into Purgatory.
Haven't read the story yet - hopefully tonight - so I won't judge if the free translation is appropriate in context. Arglay is the protagonist of Williams' novel Many Dimensions , but this story doesn't seem to rely on the previous narrative in any significant way. I was really surprised by this one. The first tinyurl link above provides a note that Williams was preoccupied with the nature of time, which is fascinatingly evident throughout this story.
The nature of time, after all, is an undercurrent of ghost stories in general, isn't it?

Some of Arglay's thoughts on the subject have certainly occurred to myself, in one form or another. The ghost here is almost a sucker punch. I really thought that the face glimpsed sideways at the window was perhaps the most we'd really see of whatever lurked inside, until the very finish. The approaching footsteps actually seem to be another character appearing for Arglay to converse with, but then the reveal of the figure's bizarre attire, its "emaciated" face, and its subsequent mad running in circles around the room is pure genius or perhaps genius loci , and is truly macabre.
I absolutely adored this story. I am fine with "suggestion" and sideways occurrence in supernatural tales, but agree this one packed a punch for the four-square presentation of the ghost. The lack of interaction was half the impact: as though the ghost has no interest in haunting Arglay, would have done everything even in his absence, and it's Arglay who's haunting the ghost, insisting on interrupting its existence, such as it is. But I don't believe the ghost was circumstantial. It's fairly evident the ghost is Arglay's brother-in-law, seemingly summoned by Arglay's presence, his past interaction with him, and Arglay's ruminations on his "responsibility" toward a person for whom he harbours such intense hatred.
