Arthur Machen

Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was a Welsh author and mystic, best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction. His first major success came in 1894, with the novella The Great God Pan . Machen's legacy remains formidable; his work has influenced countless other artists, and is seen as setting the stage for--amongst other things--the Cthulhu horrors of H. P. Lovecraft.
