The Apostle of Wonder

Welsh writer Arthur Machen (1863-1947) presents us with a dreadful ecstasy, one that we at Darkly Bright Press intend to explore through a decidedly theological lens by issuing a series of printed editions of his lesser known work, as well as presenting critical articles with original research. For books currently available, please refer to our catalog.
