To the cellars of your soul
on 3 July 2013
I have been a Machen fan for years and had not read these stories for a long-time, having lost various books along the years to forgotten friends and forgotten libraries. This book didn't disappoint, it re-kindled my fondness for all things weird, and you can't pigeon-hole weird, nor explain it, it just "is". From all the shorts in here, The Novel of the White Powder stands out for me,i won't explain it, just buy the book, read the stories and immerse yourself in the 19th Century, walk into Machen's house, open the cellar door and descend into a world of madness....
