The Hill of Dreams

by Arthur Machen
Release date: 1907
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, mainstream

Lucian Taylor is damned – either through contact with an erotically pagan faerie world or through something degenerate in his own nature. He thinks of the damning thing inside him as a "faun." He becomes a writer, and when he moves to London he becomes trapped by the increasing reality of the dark imaginings of this creature within him, which become increasingly real. The portrait of a doomed artist – a man not unlike Machen himself.
