"Roberts is known to macabre enthusiasts for a single book of short stories, THE OTHER END (1923), from which 'The Hill' has been most reprinted. This tells of a Dorset hill haunted by the shades of its pagan past. Two more stories in the book deserve wider attention: 'The Wind' and 'The Great Mother;' both are visionary tales full of spiritual drama." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 355.
