Arthur Machen (1863-1947), popular Welsh writer of the bizarre and fantastic, created some of the finest horror stories ever written. He produced works that would later have a profound influence on science fiction author H. P. Lovecraft, and the contemporary horror genre as a whole. This novel contains what are considered to be Machen's best works, written as a set of interwoven tales that shocked his Victorian contemporaries with their risqué subject matter and wonderfully eerie descriptions. The collection includes Machen's first major success "The Great God Pan," "The Inmost Light," "Shining Pyramid," and "Three Imposters." Set in the bleak and seedy London alleyways, Machen elevates the stories to eerily familiar heights, leaving many of the most disturbing and elusive details up to the reader's imagination. Horror fans especially will enjoy these classic tales of the mysterious and the macabre.
