W.W. Jacobs

William Wymark Jacobs (1863–1943) was a prolific short-story writer. Known for his trademark wit – even in the horror story ‘The Monkey’s Paw’, for which he is best known – Jacobs set most of his stories in the docks of East London, where he lived from a young age, as well as in Essex, where he moved in his middle age.
