REVIEWS of this new edition: Stories of the macabre exert their pull from Hallowe'en onwards, such as the stories of Arthur Machen, republished by Tartarus Press in handsome editions, made for reading by a flickering fire. - Suzi Feay, The Independent (29/10/05) If you want an overall picture of Machen the man . . . secure a copy of Ritual from Tartarus while stocks last. - Reggie Oliver, All Hallows Offering genuine emotion and passages that reach the ecstasy for which Machen so often attained, Ritual and Other Stories delights and disturbs in equal measure, embodying within its bewitching narratives an alchemist's brew of wisdom and wonder. - William P. Simmons, Cemetery Dance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
