"The Great God Pan" is a short novel by Arthur Machen. The original story was published in 1890, and Machen revised and extended it in 1894. On publication it was widely denounced by the press as degenerate and horrific because of its decadent style and sexual content, although it has since garnered a reputation as a classic of horror. Machen's story was only one of many at the time to focus on Pan as a useful symbol for the power of nature and paganism. H.P. Lovecraft wrote: "Of Mr. Machen's horror-tales the most famous is perhaps 'The Great God Pan' (1894) which tell of a singular and terriple experiment and its consequences."

Arthur Machen was an influential horror, supernatural, and fantasy writer whose works included The Green Round, Hill of Dreams, and The Three Impostors.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
