22gigantes.com - A terrifying tale about the god of wild places. The Great God Pan is a novella written by Arthur Machen. On publication it was widely denounced by the press as degenerate and horrific because of its decadent style and sexual content, although it has since garnered a reputation as a classic of horror. Machen’s story was only one of many at the time to focus on Pan as a useful symbol for the power of nature and paganism.

By Soldonit I'm an aspiring author and after reading Stephen Kings TERRIFYING, "Revival." I noticed he gave credit where credit is due in pointing out this novella by Machen as an influence. I'm not a rambler on reviews so I'll keep it short like the story itself. It is probably the scariest thing I've read and the scariest part is that it was written in the 19th century. It's a quick read and leaves much to the imagination! If only I could see what the poor Gents' saw that caused their self-inflicted demise... actually I take that back, I'll leave that to the imagination. A masterpiece in horror literature is what's not written only to lurk between the lines and that's why this tale is so disturbing yet subtle in its own right. Read it then read it again is my suggestion. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Unsettling By Christopher Rian Simpson It was suggested by a coworker that I read this book. It is a horror masterpiece! While the book was written in the 1800's and has that feel of the romantic type of writing, it is none the less disturbing in the lack of actual explicit portrayals of horror that we of the modern era are used to. It is the power of suggestion and the lack of the author's description of cavorting with the Great God Pan that makes it even more fantastic. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. The Prose of Pan By D. K. Nestor I came upon The Great God Pan after reading Stephen King's Revival.The prose of Pan is over a century old and sometimes, perhaps, it is tough to take hold. But Pan, that old God, is a basis for Lovecraft and much modern horror. The Great God Pan unfolds slowly, for a short story, but it horror is old and elemental. Just be prepared for the Victorian Era prose.Pan is still about. Pan even appeared in a recent biography of Rolling Stone Brian Jones.And, especially at the Kindle Price, with recommendations from King and Lovecraft who can say no to The Great God Pan?

Of creators of cosmic fear raised to its most artistic pitch, few can hope to equal Arthur Machen. -- H. P. LovecraftWhat can I say about a writer whose influence has been acknowledged by H.P.Lovecraft, Peter Straub, T.E.D.Klein, M.John Harrison and Clive Barker? Perhaps that he managed to communicate a sense of the inexpressibly and awesomely supernatural with more power than he ever knew. -- Ramsey Campbell About the Author 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.
