NO by Boyd Rice. It's alright.

Re: Recent Reading

Just finished Arthur Machen's The White People and Other Weird Stories, this was really excellent, I loved the atmosphere in these tales, the sense of beauty and the hidden terrors. I very much look forward to reading more by Machen.
So now I have started reading Reggie Oliver's Masques of Satan.

Re: Recent Reading

The Hill of Dreams, The Secret Glory, Ornaments in Jade, Far Off Things and Hieroglyphics are further essential Machen books. The Shining Pyramid and The Great God Pan are exceptional horror stories of his not included in the Penguin book. 'N' is a classic non-horror short story.

These books changed my life. Machen wasn't as consistent a writer as Aickman or Ligotti, but he was as powerful a visionary in his strangeness.

Thanks for the recommendations James, you don't happen to know of any other decent collections or editions of these books and tales that I could check out?

Re: Recent Reading

Tartarus have spoiled me when it comes to the presentation of Machen books. None of the rest have impressed me too much.

I am currently obsessed with Daphne du Maurier and her gothic genius.
