The Three Impostors and Other Stories by Arthur Machen

Divided up into a series of episodes, it contains many complete stories within stories that are related by one of the three antagonists to either of the two protagonists in as part of their elaborate and convoluted attempts to try to track down another character who is on the run. This provokes deep thought in the reader. I read a Dover edition that contained no other stories than the linked narratives of the title.

In other words it hasn’t dated too well, lacking the effectiveness they might once of had. It would have been nice to give it a little more space for ease of readability, though there are other options such as Delphi Classics’ ebook of Machen’s complete works for that purpose. Published January 17th by Chaosium first published They discuss some act which was performed and move on.

Prima di esprimere il mio giudizio su questo libro vorrei chiarire a tutti quale sia il suo contenuto, visto che, come troppo spesso accade, la quarta di copertina si perde in frasi roboanti senza informare per nulla il lettore.

The two aforementioned short stories are classics within the genre and the lesser known ‘The novel of the dark valley’ also deserves mention. Apparently deeply shocking and contraversial in it’s time, there were angry reviews and morally outraged critics in the media, today it feels overly restrained and coy.

Now I know that the walls of sense that seem so impenetrable, that seem to loom up above the heavens and to be founded below the depths, and to shut us in for evermore, are no such everlasting impassable barriers arthir we fancied, but thinnest mahcen most airy veils that melt away before the seeker, and dissolve as the early mist of the morning about the brooks.

The language is very descriptive and somewhat flowery. A series of stories inside of stories are told, some with stories inside of rtes, many with a horror bend, and all linking back, however falsely and tentatively, with the search for a young man with spectacles and a gold coin.


Biblioteca personal Ediciones Orbis. The reader is left wondering why everyone is so frightened. The Three Imposters is a strange little book, a narrative about a secret society’s efforts to retrieve a Roman coin “The Gold Tiberius”but this “novel” appears to be little more than a convenient device for telling a series of marvelous, horrific tales.

May 21, Bill Kerwin rated it it was amazing Shelves: A good producer could make a very good film of it. So far I’ve read two volumes of this three volume series from Chaosium, and I’m fairly comfortable advising all but the completists to just stick to the first one and then move on to something else. I like the style of Machen’s writing and will probably pick up anther collection of his in the near ters.

From what I have heard, “The White People” is the key piece of that. Arthur Machen was a leading Welsh author of the s.

Apr 06, Simon rated it really liked it Shelves: Certainly some parts work well as short stories in isolation but their necessity of fitting within the frame story is dubious. Other books in the series. Both Chaosium and Joshi approach Machen from the Lovecraft direction of course, though I don’t think it particularly helpful to retrospectively view him through that lens.
