    ITEM#: 13468257

    Arthur Machen (Arthur Llewelyn Jones, 1863-1947) was born and raised in Wales. He moved to London in 1881 and worked as a journalist, children's tutor, and publisher's clerk before finding literary success in 1894 with the story "The Great God Pan."
    Guillermo del Toro is a film director, producer, screenwriter, novelist, and designer. He is best known as the director ofPan's Labyrinth and the Hellboy franchise.

    "Of living creators of cosmic fear raised to its most artistic pitch, few if any can hope to equal the versatile Arthur Machen." -H.P. Lovecraft

    Actor, journalist , devotee of Celtic Christianity and the Holy Grail legend, Welshman Arthur Machen is considered one of the fathers of weird fiction, a master of mayhem whose work has drawn comparisons to H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. Readers will find the perfect introduction to his style in this new collection. With the title story, an exercise in the bizarre that leaves the reader disoriented virtually from the first page, Machen turns even fundamental truths upside down. "There have been those who have sounded the very depths of sin," explains the character Ambrose, "who all their lives have never done an 'ill deed.'"
