Great God Pan (Dodo Press) by Arthur Machen
Book DescriptionArthur Machen (1863-1947) was a leading Welsh author. He is best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction. He also is well known for his leading role in creating the legend of the Angels of Mons. At the age of eleven, he boarded at Hereford Cathedral School, where he received an excellent classical education. Family poverty ruled out attendance at university. Around 1890 Machen began to publish in literary magazines, writing stories influenced by the works of Robert Louis Stevenson, some of which used gothic or fantastic themes. This led to his first major success, The Great God Pan (1894), which was part of the growing aesthetic movement of the time. Machen's story was widely denounced for its sexual and horrific content and subsequently sold well, going into a second edition. Machen next produced The Three Impostors, a novel composed of a number of interwoven tales, in 1895. The novel and the stories within it were eventually to be regarded as among Machen's best works.

Books By Author Arthur Machen
Three Imposters, Paperback (March 2014)
The bizarre and mysterious short stories contained within all stand alone as thrilling horror fiction, however connected together here through their theme of imposture, Machen skilfully intertwines the tales with mounting suspense.
White People and Other Weird Stories, Paperback (March 2012)
Offers an exercise in the bizarre leaving you disoriented and on edge. From the first page, the author turns even fundamental truths upside-down, as his character Ambrose explains, "there have been those who have sounded the very depths of sin, who all their lives have never done an 'ill deed'" setting the stage for a tale entirely without logic.
