Machen

Arthur Machen

Kindle (US version), Kindle eBook, ePub (US version), ePub eBook

The supernatural tales of the Welsh mystic author Arthur Machen have played an instrumental, though in recent times semi-forgotten, part in the history of horror fiction. Famous works such as ‘The Great God Pan’ and ‘The Hill of Dreams’ have intrigued readers for over a hundred years, retaining the same raw power that first shocked Victorian readers. For the first time in publishing history, Delphi Classics is proud to present the complete fictional works of Arthur Machen, with numerous illustrations, informative introductions, many rare non-fiction works and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
