Widdershins (1911) is a classic collection of supernatural stories by George Oliver Onions (1873-1961). Onions was a prolific novelist and poet, as well as a skilled illustrator and designer. This is his first of three collections of supernatural fiction and contains the first book appearance of the highly-regarded short story ‘The Beckoning Fair One’. ‘Widdershins’ is an occult term indicating a direction or movement counter to the course of the sun – i.e. anti-clockwise or lefhandwise – generally as a means of avoiding bad luck.
