      The Shining Pyramid takes us again to the remote hillsides of England, where a young girl has gone missing after taking a shortcut across the hills, and strange symbols are discovered around a nearby house. Vaughn who discovers arrowheads in queer arrangements around his house contacts his friend Dyson who is versed in the uncanny to help him sort out the mystery.The apparent survival of an ancient, mystical evil in the remote hills of England shakes up the worldview of our two protagonists and [...]

      A little tale of mystery and horror, it blends elements of detective stories and horror. The story starts innocently enough with two men discussing strange arrangements of stones left at their doorstep. This part reminded me of The Adventure of the Dancing Men by Conan Doyle. Someone finds a code near their house that may have horrific implications. The discussion between the two and their rational thinking echoes Poe's The Mysteries of the Rue Morgue. But where Doyle's and Poe's tale concluded [...]

      a pirâmide de fogo****xadrez literário muito bem conseguidoliciosa atmosfera, densa e místicaande final lasciviamente horrososo.faltou alguma convicção, na linguagem de Machen, para definitivamente empurrar o leitor na direcção do abismo. a mesma convicção que Borges quase sempre consegue (com as suas referências por vezes duvidosas, quase sempre deliciosas, raras vezes gratuitas). escrever, antigamente, era um acto muito mais desamparado. os pormenores que povoariam as páginas teriam [...]

      Another truly classic short story by Arthur Machen featuring some of my favourite recurring characters in literature, Vaughan and Dyson. This tale can be read probably in under and hour, and it is an hour of your time thoroughly well spent.As per the Welsh romanticism evangelised by Machen, the meat of the story take place in his childhood home of South Wales (which is also my home), with real world locations such as Caerleons Roman amphitheatre taking centre stage.This story feels like almost a [...]

    5. Enrique Oviedo on said:

      Historias de horror sencillas con un denominador cómun: la existencia de fuerzas ocultas y obscuras que subyacen a la civilización (en este caso, la sociedad victoriana, en pleno progreso científico, aunque paradójicamente en un momento en que lo paranormal recobró fuerza como una reacción).Estos cuentos prefijuran y anteceden al más clásico Lovecraft.

    6. Tim Pendry on said:

      One of Arthur Machen's earliest short stories from 1895 which introduces the idea of 'evil' primeval troglodytic forces lurking under Britain's Western mountains. It doesn't quite hang together and the final scenes exhibit hysteria but the theme of what lies behind the veil of normality creates unease.

    7. Gerardo Targaryen on said:

      En realidad, me gustó mucho la escritura de Machen, tiene ese arcanismo que me enamoró de Lovecraft pero que en él se siente mucho más mortífero, en el aspecto de que es casi histórico. Me pregunto si Borges eligió los mejores relatos o los menos «terroríficos».

    8. TOM on said:

      Another excellent and strange tale from Machen. A man who is friends with Dyson asks him to visit as strange stone formations are appearing on the path next to his house, which is in the Welsh wilderness. Not only this, but they are formed from ancient stone flints, which have clearly been shaped by hands that are not human. Meanwhile a local girl has disappeared, and strange painted eyes appear on the garden wall, and the aura of menace increases. Culminates in a dramatic ending, this is anothe [...]

      Öyküler bu tür yazın antolojilerindeki tamamlanmamış (yarım kalan) fragmanlar gibi. Maalesef beklediğimi bulamadım.

      Excellent. Very short novella. Lovely tale beautifully told.

    11. Basil Miller on said:

      This was an extremely quick read but I enjoyed it. I havent read much detective stories and it has been a long time I have read one. So I dont have much to compare it to aside from Hardy Boys(which isn't much in my opinion. Though it was fun and kept up the short, slightly mysterious happenings, it felt too short.Also I ended up having more questions, especially about the detective's conclusions and how quickly his friend just went with it. The ending explanation for the reveal just had me sayin [...]

    12. Miguel on said:

      I read this thinking it was a tale of horror, but it seemed more like a detective story. It truly takes the old Conan-Doyle (Holmes) adage to task: "When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."Two gentlemen, Mr. Vaughan (from the country), and Mr. Dyson (from the city) set about the task of discovering the source of a number of figures made of arrowhead flints that appear near Vaughan's house. All simple explanations are elimina [...]

      Another funky tale of terror from Mr Machen. In the public domain, with a free electronic copy here.

    14. Sonia on said:

      I'm a little irritated by the ending of this story. There was a little bit too much of an explanation which ruins the whole atmospheric eerieness of the scene in Chapter 4.It was okay. I even liked it as the mystery advanced, but the ending leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    15. Marinho Lopes on said:

      Inclui: “A Pirâmide de Fogo”, “A História do Sinete Negro” e “A História do Pó Branco” de Arthur Machen. Três contos interessantes, um pouco ao estilo de Poe, mas talvez incompletos por não conseguirem de facto chegar ao nível do Poe (em sinistralidade, por exemplo).

    16. Palwascha on said:

      Here is a story that is a prime example of how Machen builds atmosphere. For that alone I rate this story highly though it does leave many questions unanswered.

    17. Mark Goodwin on said:

      I didn't find this particularly satisfying. It's about a missing girl and strange formations in the forest. Hopefully other stories by this author are better I will see in the future.
