Romances of the White Day

A new Sarob Press volume pays tribute to the great, and sadly neglected, Arthur Machen. From the info on the Sarob blog:

Here are three newly written novelettes inspired by the works of Wales’ greatest writer of supernatural and occult fiction.

Includes an afterword to their story by each author. The stories ...

JOHN HOWARD: THE FLOOR OF HEAVEN ... a London adventure, enigmatically below the crust.

MARK VALENTINE: EXCEPT SEVEN ... an ancient ceremony revived and of where that “otherworld” intrudes.

RON WEIGHELL: THE CHAPEL OF INFERNAL DEVOTION ... of art, music, imaginary books and of pagan ritual.

Three writers of distinction paying tribute to one of the acknowledged masters of British weird fiction. Good news for discerning readers, especially since the novelette - an expanded short story, if you like - was a form in which Machen excelled.
