October 2017: Machen

"I am glad you came, Clarke; very glad indeed. I was not sure you could spare the time."

"I was able to make arrangements for a few days; things are not very lively just now. But have you no misgivings, Raymond? Is it absolutely safe?"

Arthur Machen, The Great God Pan - 1890

A perfectly unnerving to a book that is, full confession, a bit of a slog.
