Summary, etc.:
Perhaps no figure better embodies the transition from the Gothic tradition to modern horror than Arthur Machen. In the final decade of the nineteenth century, the Welsh writer produced a seminal body of tales of occult horror, spiritual and physical corruption, and malignant survivals from the primeval past. Machen's 'weird fiction' has influenced generations of storytellers and it remains no less unsettling today. This new collection includes the core late-Victorian horror classics, a selection of lesser-known prose poems and later tales.
Genre: Horror fiction.
Paranormal fiction.
Short stories.
Welsh fiction.
