I had never heard of this story until I read Stephen Kings dedication in Revival and then i found it on #serialreader . I really enjoyed this old horror tale, it kept me interested and the author allows the reader to create a lot of the horror in their mind. I understand how this is a important influential work for Stephen King.

This was a short read and was interesting but didn‘t really shock or frighten in any way.

The shortest book on my TBR. I was honestly expecting more horror, but it wasn‘t that scary at all. There were no graphic scenes. Instead, the released was asked to do a lot of imagining based upon vague descriptions, which I guess is why it didn‘t really freak me out. I did find it funny that Goodreads recommended Harriet the Spy because I was reading this book - for the life of me I can‘t figure out why! #SFFTBRChallenge

monalyisha Does the Goodreads algorithm think it‘s PETER Pan? 😅 (edited) 1y
DivineDiana 😳That‘s because Goodreads is a computer! 1y
DuckOfDoom This really sounds weird. The Goodreads algorithm needs some improvement asap! 1y

A bit vague, and very dialogue-heavy. In my opinion, it benefits from being read in one or two sittings, rather than over several days as encouraged by the #SerialReader format, due to the number of characters and plotlines involved. I could see the influence on Lovecraft, but this wasn't as creepy and atmospheric.

2BR02B Also just realized I made an unintentional pun by "panning" this title. ? 1y

I've been neglecting #SerialReader for nearly a year, so I decided to start reading this short, weird classic tonight.

jpmcwisemorgan I thought that said the great POD Pan and thought, well, yeah, that‘s probably gonna be weird. 1y

Went to a very entertaining and informative talk on the life and works of Arthur Machen, and bought this new illustrated limited edition. I have no. 85/200. It's not my favourite Machen story, but the collector in me rejoices and the illustrations are cool. (This is also the last thing John Selway worked on before he sadly died very recently.) Also, I haven't read The Shining Pyramid before. 🤘😈

BekahB I really need to pick up a book of his stories. I‘ve only read The Great God Pan on Serial Reader. I think the app has a couple other Machen stories, but I‘d like to actually get a whole collection. 2y
Leniverse @BekahB I need to read more of his stuff too. You can get audio of several of them for free through LibriVox. I haven't checked Project Gutenberg, but I didn't find any free editions on Amazon. They have practically free ones though. I'm very partial to a short story called "The White People". 2y

Finished listening to this in the AM. It was good. It wasn't very frightening, and it wasn't gory at all. Both of which aren't complaints. I can see where the style was influential for Lovecraft and King. It was a great imaginative piece which allows one's mind to elaborate on the horrors within the text.

I want to love these classic horror tales but I'm afraid that I never will.

Dr. Raymond: Clarke, there is no danger at all. Trust me.

Me: Clarke, get out of there NOW!

OK FINE I'LL TRY IT. 😂 No, but seriously, this looks pretty fun! Starting with shorter issues and stuff I've read before.

AliceInWonderLibrary What is this? 3y
prowlix So far I'm loving this app! I'm reading Carmilla with it 👍 3y
brendanmleonard It's called Serial Reader. You get, like, a section of a work sent to you each day. 3y

KrisConstantReader I think Stephen King has mentioned The Great God Pan as one of his favorites, if I'm not mistaken. 3y
brendanmleonard @KrisConstantReader he calls it the best horror story ever written. I'm inclined to agree. 3y
KrisConstantReader MUST READ NOW! I just checked, it's free on iBooks, yay! I didn't realize it was a novella. The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen

StephTKO Woo hoo! It's pretty fun. 3y
mattgodfrey What is this? I read The Great God Pan a while back though and loved it. 3y
BekahB Nice! I didn't know Arthur Machen's stories were included on the Serial Reader app. You've convinced me to try this! I just added The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins to my list. 3y
affiknitty This app is fantastic! I started with The Sorrows of Young Werther. I see myself finally able to tackle those Russian classics! 😀 3y

Well it's tough to disagree with Stephen King and HP Lovecraft but this was a snoozefest and about as scary as my cat.
