First published in 1907, “The Hill of Dreams” is a semi-autobiographical novel by Welsh author and mystic Arthur Machan. The tale revolves around the life of Lucian Taylor, a young man who had an idyllic childhood in rural Wales. Lucian experiences mystical visions at an old Roman fort locally known as The Hill of Dreams, and later becomes an impoverished author in London pursing art and history. Offering an illuminating insight into Machan's life and mind, “The Hill of Dreams” is not to be missed by lovers of his work or supernatural fiction in general. 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. 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.
