Considered Machen’s most important and moving work, The Hill of Dreams tells the story of aspiring author Lucian Taylor and his fascination with a relic Roman fort near his hometown in Wales. The story follows Taylor’s real-life explorations, through dream-like memories, and finally obsession and fantasy that will lead to Taylor’s ultimate doom. Arthur Machen was a major influence on many early-20th Century fantasy and horror writers, including H. P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany, and David Lindsay.

Major work by Arthur Machen
Dreamy, philosophical, poetic journey of a young writer in 1890's London. Machen's wonderful use of language as sensual, evocative experience is rewarding. Now I want to read other Machen writings. The narrator was excellent, and I hope that we will see other Machen audiobooks in the future.
