Decadent, perverse and unreal, the strange stories of Arthur Machen uncover a lingering, ancestral horror, distantly remembered in the language of fairy tales, pagan lore, and in the secret old games that nurses teach to children. Deeply controversial in their own time, some of Machen's stories had to wait decades to for changing social mores to permit their publication. This new collection by Lowood Press combines all of Machen's most celebrated works in one volume. Herein are his greatest short stories, including The White People, The Great God Pan, The Bowmen and The Shining Pyramid; his semi-autobiographical novel, Hill of Dreams; and the original, complete version of The Three Impostors, with its interconnecting tales of occult intrigue. An unrivaled master of sacred terror and pioneer of the weird fiction genre, Machen's work has directly influenced such notable horror writers as H. P. Lovecraft, Peter Straub, and Stephen King—but it has yet to be surpassed.

This unique collection of Arthur Machen's Greatest Occult & Supernatural Works has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards. "The Three Impostors" is an episodic novel incorporating several weird stories, and culminates in a final denouement of deadly horror, connected with a secret society devoted to debauched pagan rites. "The Hill of Dreams" recounts the life of a young man, Lucian Taylor, focusing on his dreamy childhood in rural Wales, in a town based on Caerleon. "The Terror: — In wartime Britain, a series of unexplained murders occur with no sign of who or what is responsible. "The Secret Glory" — A public school boy becomes fascinated by tales of the Holy Grail and escapes from his repressive school in search of a deeper meaning to life. "The White People" — A young girl's diary, recounting tales told her by her nurse, and her increasingly deep delving into magic. "The Great God Pan" was at first widely denounced by the press as degenerate and horrific because of its decadent style and sexual content, although it has since garnered a reputation as a classic of horror. "The Inmost Light" — A scientist imprisons his wife's soul in a shining jewel, letting something else into her untenanted body, but the jewel is stolen. "The Shining Pyramid" — Strange arrangements of stones appear at the edge of a young man's property. He and a friend attempt to decipher their meaning before it is too late. "The Red Hand" — It focuses on a murder performed with an ancient stone axe. Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was a Welsh author and mystic of the 1890s and early 20th century. He is best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction.
