Synopsis

Stories woven together with the devious threads of dark magic create the ultimate in horror fiction by the gruesome Arthur Machen. When two men set about as amateur sleuths they are unaware of the depths of conspiracy or the malign forces dwelling in the shadows they will uncover. Encountering stories of several bizarre and nightmarish mysteries within a seemingly peaceful suburb, the duo's investigations eventually lead them to London's occult underworld. The short stories contained within all stand alone as thrilling horror fiction, however connected together here through their theme of imposture, Machen skilfully intertwines the tales with mounting suspense.



FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.

"Of living creators of cosmic fear raised to its most artistic pitch, few if any can hope to equal the versatile Arthur Machen." H.P. Lovecraft. Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was born Arthur Llewellyn Jones in Caerleon in Wales. Moving to London, but living an impoverished existence, Machen eventually found success with his horror novella The Great God Pan, and soon after The Three Impostors. Machen firmly established himself as a master storyteller of decadent supernatural horror, publishing several occult and weird tales with memorable plots and a real skill for the esoteric, creating dark and suspenseful atmospheres.
