The Great God Pan, Parts 2 and 3

June 8, 2021

Back once again with parts two and three of Arthur Machen's masterpiece 'The Great God Pan'. This time we delve into the curious history of a young girl with a habit of getting up to mischief in the wild woods of Wales. In part three we (finally!) get to the streets of London where a young man about town delves into the mystery of his long lost college friend, whose mysterious bride may be more than meets the eye.

And if all that leaves you wanting more, we end the episode with a brief look into the life and times of Arthur Machen and we discover how his occult writings influenced the works of George Lucas, Alan Moore and Aleister Crowley.

Welcome Back!

This time I am trying something a little different, as we explore the folk horror classic 'The Great God Pan' by Arthur Machen. A victorian tale of ancient gods, mad scientists, foggy London streets, occult rituals and death! 

In this first episode we read the first part (of 8) of this short story, and introduce the hero of the piece, the god Pan.
