"The Three Impostors" is a collection of interwoven tales by Welsh author Arthur Machan, first published in 1895. As with most of Machan's work, the tales are of a supernatural horror bent, each chilling and masterfully written in their own right. The novel and the stories within it would eventually be considered as some of Machen's best works; but, due to the scandal concerning Oscar Wilde, Machen's relationship with decadent horror was unattractive to publishers and, as a result, the popularity of this work suffered at the time of publication. Arthur Machen (1863 - 1947) was a Welsh author and renowned mystic during the 1890s and early 20th century who garnered literary acclaim for his contributions to the supernatural, horror, and fantasy fiction genres. His seminal novella "The Great God Pan" (1890) has become a classic of horror fiction, with Stephen King describing it as one of the best horror stories ever written in the English language. Other notable fans of his gruesome tales include William Butler Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle; and his work has been compared to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
