I found these stories to be on the same power as HP Lovecraft another great masters of the time I highly recommend it to anybody who likes old fashioned horror

I bought Arthur Machen for two reasons: his "signature" story "The Great God Pan" and the fact that he was much admired by (and to a degree imitated by) H.P. Lovecraft. After reading this book, I could understand why only that one story of his is found in anthologies. The stories are over-written, dull, and have very little horror or interesting supernatural content. I found it difficult to finish the book. Two stars for historical importance and for being a muse for old H.P.

Most people don't know what true evil is, declares Arthur Machen through a character in his classic Christian horror story "The White People." He goes on to explain true evil in philosophical terms, and then through the actions of a young girl, her nurse (nanny), and several others. In light of today's strong interest in Faeries, Machen states categorically in "The White People" that the same are the tempters who have suggested that mankind fail in its pursuit of righteousness.

This book is no longer in print--at least not in an inexpensive paperback edition--but it's worth searching for a used copy. All of Machen's best supernatural short stories and novellas are brought together in this volume.
For those who have never read Machen, you are in for a treat. Machen was an accomplished writer of supernatural tales with an unusually powerful and original imagination. The premise on which he based many of his most chilling tales--that of the survival of an aboriginal European population worshipping chthonic fertility deities--was later made famous as a historical thesis by Margaret Murray in "The God of the Witches". I don't know how much value this idea has as a scholarly premise, but Machen thought of it decades before Murray, and used it as the understated background in some his best stories, such as "The White People". However, Machen was much more than a purveyor of scary stories; he was a well rounded, sociable man with a strong mystical streak. These personal qualities manifest themselves in his writing through a quiet humor and muted, but powerful, sense of the numinous. Unlike many of the writers of supernatural and fantasy fiction who followed and were indebted to him, (Dunsany, Cabell, Lovecraft are but a few) Machen seems to have thought that the horrors he wrote about were only the shadow side of some more powerful and greater goodness. This strong but undogmatic faith gives Machen's work a unique feeling of wonder and mystery. Even George MacDonald's Christian fantasies lack the freshness and sense of possibility found in Machen's best work. This book, along with most of Machen's other writings, is a satisfying and complex read.
