The Great God Pan and the Hill of Dreams
Arthur Machen
0486443450
Jan 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Two works--one of imaginative and decadent horror, the other lyrical and introspective--comprise these books by one of the pioneering masters of supernatural fiction. The Great God Pan scandalized Victorian London with its suggestive visions of sexuality and paganism, while The Hill of Dreams is a semi-autobiographical work about Machen's battles with his inner demons. Cult classics of fantasy and horror, these two works--now in one volume--remain landmarks in English literature.

Ramsey Campbell
What can I say about a writer whose influence has been acknowledged by H.P.Lovecraft, Peter Straub, T.E.D.Klein, M.John Harrison and Clive Barker?

Book Description
Machen's world is cheerful and bursting with normality. Yet darker forces are at work; a boiling inferno heaves beneath the sidewalks of suburbia, and nothing is as it seems. As one astonishing event follows another and mystery is heaped on mystery, conspiracy and counter-conspiracy envelop everything in a world of impostors. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

He was pondering these problems one evening in a house of call in the Strand, and the obstinacy with which the persons he so ardently desired to meet hung back gave the modest tankard before him an additional touch of bitter. As it happened, he was alone in his compartment, and, without thinking, he uttered aloud the burden of his meditations. `How bizarre...

All dingy, old mahogany; big bookcases and bureaus, and claw-legged chairs and tables. As I said to the wife (as she was soon afterwards), "We don't exactly want to set up a chamber of horrors, do we?" So I sold off the lot for what I could get. I must confess I like a cheerful room.
