Publisher's Summary

Dubbed the greatest horror story in English by Stephen King, The Great God Pan is an eerie and otherworldly mystery about a diabolical operation and its terrifying repercussions. After rescuing a young woman from the streets of London, Dr. Raymond uses her as a test subject for brain surgery aimed at "lifting the veil" of reality, to see the supernatural and the "great god Pan". 
The operation is a disaster and leaves the subject lobotomized. Years later, London becomes afflicted with a strange series of male suicides connected to a beautiful but sinister woman named Helen. Just who is she, and what is her connection to Dr. Raymond's failed experiment? 
First published in 1890, The Great God Pan influenced many writers of the genre, including the unrivalled master H.P. Lovecraft. It makes perfect listening for a dark and rainy evening.

Great Content, Great Performance, Missing Pieces

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Arthur Machen is legendary for a reason, and so is The Great God Pan. The stories in this collection are a great way to get a sense of Machen's work. On top of that, Peter Wickham does a great job reading, especially given Machen's proclivity for elaborate prose. HOWEVER the book is missing pieces and it makes listening an incredibly frustrating experience since chapters begin part way through the text. The result is a disorientating experience that I cannot recommend, as much as I wish I could. Please Audible, fix this and then this book would be well-worth its cost.
