Publisher's Summary

Machen's novella The Great God Pan is often cited as one of Lovecraft's most notable influences. In it, Dr. Raymond's ultimate goal is to devise a way to open the mind of man so that he may experience all the world has to offer. He calls this "seeing the great god Pan". After much study of the human mind, he devises an experiment that involves minor brain surgery. He performs this experiment on a young woman named Mary, but when she awakens she is terrified and mentally crippled. Years later another woman, the beautiful but sinister-looking Helen Vaughan, is reported to have caused a series of mysterious happenings in a small, nameless town....

    Story
    "classic horror"

    this story reminds me of a much HP Lovecraft story except you don't need a dictionary to read it haha. I love the horror genre and this is one of the classic motivational stories of some the great authors of our time. definitely a must listen even if it is for that sake only.

    "Lovecraft's tales = slightly altered fanfic of Ma"

    ... -chen and MR James.

    I am grateful that I have read Lovecraft, only in that it made me curious about Machen. Thank you for the fawning over Cthulhu and Company, Mr. Lovecraft. But Pan is the real hoofed deal.

    "Ahead of its time"

    Decent though occasionally off-putting performance...the reader really shouldn't attempt a British accent. Great story, with tension building throughout. A source of inspiration to horror writers over a century after its publication.
