“Maybe the best (horror story) in the English language.” – Stephen King, (about The Great God Pan)

Arthur Machen is widely acknowledged as a master of horror fiction, exposing the cosmic nightmares of existence that lurk beneath reality. Such classics as The Great God Pan and The White People shocked the world and solidified his reputation. The Terror, published in 1916, and its greatly altered short story version The Coming of the Terror are every bit as powerful as his earlier works.

The first book in Shadow House Publishing’s Horror Hall of Fame Novellas, this special edition is edited and introduced by critically acclaimed horror author William Simmons.

He's the puppet master. You don't see him, but he pulls the strings that gets things done. He's the silent partner. He's black ops. If you notice his presence, it's the last thing you'll notice — because now you're dead. He's the shadow you thought you saw in that dark alleyway. You can have a conversation with him, and when you turn around to offer him a cup of coffee, he's already gone.
