On the surface, everything appears normal and cheerful in this bustling suburb of neatly laid out homes and well-trimmed hedges. But nothing is really as it seems. For in this world of impostors, conspiracies combine with dark forces to veil a once ordinary London neighbourhood in a cloud of mystery and fear.
A masterpiece of Gothic horror and suspense that inspired such writers as H.P. Lovecraft, The Three Impostors is Machen’s famous collection of ‘weird tales’ – a string of shocking short stories woven together with a fine narrative thread. Rich with terror, adventure, satire, deception and dreamlike fantasy, it is a classic of occult literature written by a stylistic master.
