Arthur Machen Resurrected

Feast your eyes on this 1965 Corgi paperback edition of Arthur Machen's The Novel of the White Powder. Looks so good I could eat it. Machen has to be Wales's coolest ever writer. His celebrity fans have included: H P Lovecraft, Aleister Crowley, Borges and Mark E Smith. This year the Library of Wales will be resurrecting two Machen masterpieces, The Great God Pan (in March) and The Hill of Dreams (in June). Sweet.
