Group Description

The mailing list of the Friends of Arthur Machen, a society based in the UK devoted to the Welsh writer Arthur Machen, his works and life. Although the list is mainly devoted to Machen, discussion of other related topics of interest to Machenphiles will also be welcome. These obviously include weird, decadent and gothic writings in general, covering such writers as Lord Dunsany, de la Mare, Stevenson, Wilde, Lovecraft, Blackwood and others.

Other topics of possible interest would be the fin-de-siecle, Arthuriana, Forteana, the Occult, psychogeographical analysis, mystical musings on the nature of reality, and of course consideration of the true nature of taverns.

"Thin and strange, mingled together, the voices came up to him on the hill; it was as if an outland race inhabited the ruined city and talked in a strange language of strange and terrible things."

For more details on Machen's life and his Friends go to the link to the society website below.
