Publisher Description

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 tales 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.  This comprehensive collection offers the most complete edition of Arthur Machen possible in the US, with all the fiction except for one obscure short story collection.  The compressive eBook provides numerous illustrations, informative introductions, many rare non-fiction works and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)


* Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Machen's life and works

* Concise introductions to the novels and other texts

* ALL four novels, with individual contents tables

* Rare novels like THE GREEN ROUND appear here for the first time in digital print

* Images of how the books were first printed, giving your eReader a taste of the original texts

* Excellent formatting of the texts

* Rare short story collections like THE CHRONICLE OF CLEMENDY, appearing in print for the first time in many years

* Special chronological and alphabetical contents tables for the short stories

* Rare uncollected tales – 105 grisly Machen stories for you to explore

* Special criticism section, with Starrett’s seminal essay evaluating Machen’s contribution to literature

Please note: ‘The House of the Hidden Light’ cannot appear in this collection due to being published for the first time in 2003 and therefore not being in the public domain.  Once new texts enter the public domain, they will be added to the eBook as a free update.
