Strange Roads & With the Gods in Spring

by Arthur Machen

In "Strange Roads," Machen weaves a haunting tale about a young man who sets out on a journey to uncover the secrets of the mysterious stone circle known as the "Grey House." As he delves deeper into the unknown, he discovers a world beyond his wildest imagination. "With the Gods in Spring" is a fantastical tale about a group of travelers who embark on a journey to an enchanted island. They encounter mystical beings, ancient gods, and experience a world beyond the confines of human understanding. Machen's writing style is descriptive and immersive, transporting readers to a world of magic, mystery, and the unknown. His mastery of the horror genre is evident in his ability to evoke a sense of unease and terror in readers without resorting to graphic violence or gore. This collection is a must-read for fans of horror and fantasy, as well as anyone who appreciates masterful storytelling. Machen's influence can be seen in the works of authors such as H.P. Lovecraft and Neil Gaiman, making this book an important piece of literary history.
