Summary

Machen's novella The Great God Pan is often cited as one of Lovecraft's most notable influences.

classic horror

this story reminds me of a much HP Lovecraft story except you don't need a dictionary to read it haha. I love the horror genre and this is one of the classic motivational stories of some the great authors of our time. definitely a must listen even if it is for that sake only.

Excellent Dramatic Reading of Machen's Classic Story.

As the little boy says in John Carpenter's THE FOG "Mr. Machen told ghost stories."

If we amend that to "supernatural" or "paranormal" we would strike closer to the Mark. Mr. Machen told some downright CREEPY stories in his time and this one takes top marks.

And Mr. Shea Taylor's outstanding reading, his flawless transition from character to character and regional accent to regional accent makes the story a delughtful (if shivery) listening experience.

I cannot recommend it enough!
