The White People and Other Weird Stories - Arthur Machen

these weird tales...are strange. this is about the most I have enjoyed this type of short fiction--the enigmatic stuff that leaves me slightly confused as to what has happened, why I should find it important, and why more can't happen. I think with Machen, I'm helped by his beautiful way of telling a befuddling story, but also, I look to feel awe, a sense of the sublime, rather than a Horror effect. I've also stopped expecting things to be clearly explained; these are not tales designed to show off Logic--far from it.
