      In that case, I'd suggest you go behind Williams and give Algernon
      Blackwood's JOHN SILENCE a try. And also Wm Yeats' "Rosa
      Alchemica" (most easily found, with two related tales, in MYTHOLOGIES
      [1959]). Some Arthur Machen stories also hover close to that territory.
      If it had been the supernatural suspense that hooked you, I'd
      have suggested Sax Rohmer.
      I don't think there's anybody who's quite like Williams, though.
