Sorcery and Sanctity: A Tribute to Arthur Machen

To mark the 150th anniversary of Arthur Machen's birth, Hieroglyphic Press are publishing Sorcery and Sanctity - A Tribute to Arthur Machen, with new stories in the Machen tradition from seventeen authors inspired by the wizard from Gwent, including Ron Weighell, Mark Samuels, Thana Niveau, Steve Rasnic Tem, John Howard and John Gale.

The tales offer tributes to all aspects of Machen's literary career, including his work in supernatural horror and mystical wonder, the wartime legends and the ornate prose of his Nineties vignettes. The anthology, elegantly designed and produced, is in a limited edition of 150 copies, only 100 of which are for sale, and proceeds go to The Friends of Arthur Machen. It is sure to be a choice collector's item among Machenites for years to come, and an enduring homage to his work. Update: now sold out.
