Re: Manliest Writers of 'Weird' or 'Horror' Literature
I'll stretch it even more. The Greek dramatists were certainly manly insofar as performance on the battlefield was just as important as the arts. Even for the philosophers of antiquity, the original meaning of "virtue" meant manliness.
"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."
~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"
