The Great God Pan

The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen has just been reprinted in the Library of Wales series. As well as the title novella Machen's short stories The White People (just astonishing) and The Shining Pyramid are also included in this edition. The volume contains an introduction by horror writer Ramsey Campbell and comes replete with endorsements from a host of literary luminaries. If you've never read any Machen - Gwent's master of the macabre - this might not be a bad time to start. At £7.99 you can't really go wrong.
