‘One of the best horror stories ever written. Maybe the best in the English language’-Stephen King
A doctor performs an experiment on a young woman that goes horribly wrong, and a series of increasingly strange events follow: sinister woodland rituals, disappearances, suicides… Viewed as immoral and decadent on first publication in 1894, Machen’s weird tale has since established itself as a classic of its genre and has been described by Stephen King as ‘one of the best horror stories ever written. Maybe the best in the English language’.
Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was the pen-name of Arthur Llewellyn Jones, a Welsh author and mystic of the 1890s and early 20th century. He is best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction.
