9780486460529: The Three Impostors

On the surface, everything appears normal and cheerful in this bustling suburb of neatly laid out homes and well-trimmed hedges. But nothing is really as it seems. For in this world of impostors, conspiracies combine with dark forces to veil a once-ordinary London neighborhood in a cloud of mystery and fear.
A masterpiece of Gothic horror and suspense that inspired such writers as H. P. Lovecraft, The Three Impostors is Machen's famous collection of "weird tales" — a string of shocking short stories woven together with a fine narrative thread. Rich with terror, adventure, satire, deception, and dreamlike fantasy, it is a classic of occult literature written by a stylistic master.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

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.
