Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.144: Arthur Machen's 1890s Notebook

This weekend I was fortunate enough to be one of a small number of people (300 or less) to receive The Friends of Arthur Machen/Tartarus Press' joint publication of Arthur Machen's 1890 Notebook, which, I understand, includes (amongst other things) notes on Machen's classic weird tale (and one of Lovecraft's favourites) 'The White People'. This along with yet another hardback copy of Faunus (the Journal of the Friends of Arthur Machen), as well as Machenalia (the Newsletter of the Friends of Arthur Machen). Aside from wonderful gifts like the Notebook, you too can receive Faunus and Machenalia twice yearly for just twenty-five of your finest English pounds. Join The Friends of Arthur Machen today - you know you want to.

I'm also very pleased to hear that the Friends will be holdng their AGM/annual dinner in honour of Machen in London next year, which I mean to attend - with NecronomiCon also on the horizon, it's looking like 2017 is going to be very exciting indeed.
