Arthur Machen was a prominent Welsh author and mystic best known for his contributions to the supernatural, fantasy, and horror genres of fiction. Machen's work, particularly his classic horror story The Great God Pan, helped influence other great writers such as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Stephen King. The Great God Pan begins with Dr. Raymond performing an unusual experiment. The story is also noted for its focus on the Greek God Pan being used as a symbol of nature and paganism.

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.Review:
Of creators of cosmic fear raised to its most artistic pitch, few can hope to equal Arthur Machen. -- H. P. Lovecraft
What 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
