The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.36: The Great God Pan

Machen’s The Great God Pan is one of the earlier iterations of what Lovecraft came to define as cosmic horror; here it is effectively wedded to The Shining Pyramid in a new, illustrated, limited edition hardback put out by Three Imposters Press to showcase themes which would provide the foundation of later Lovecraftian horror: inconceivable powers lurking behind the thin veneer of reality; monstrous miscegenations and hybridities; and horrible, inhuman survivals from the dawn of time.
