Mark Valentine's study is one of the best overviews of Machen and furthermore one which evinces a real sympathy and insight into the peculiar mythos which pervades his works, that subtle and transfiguring spirit of mediaeval mysticism which breathes throughout his tales, radiating ineffable glimmerings from the realm of the Grail and the 'Rose of Fire' whose wondrous refulgence is beheld in.

Mark Valentine's biography, the first in many decades, provides a much needed re-examination of Machen's varied and fascinating career.

Valentine’s short stories have been published by a number of small presses and in anthologies since the 1980s, and the exploits of his series character, "The Connoisseur", an occult detective, were published as The Collected Connoisseur in 2010.

A highly readable, strong scholarly and critical contribution. Captivating throughout, with lively writing and highly perceptive readings of Machen's work. I especially value how Valentine takes Machen's spirituality seriously (without necessarily buying into it). The only other writing on Machen I've read much of is by ST Joshi, who I much respect, but who dismisses much of Machen's neoplatonic/sacramental world view instead of fully engaging with it as he might. I'll be on the lookout for more of Valentine's writing after this.

Read THE BOOK `On the side of the Angels' (1915) By Harold Begbie about the 1st World WAR `MONS ANGELS'.
Harold Begbie was involved in the Oxford Group(later called Moral Re-Armament) & with the Salvation Army. His social reform concerns appear strongly in his book `The Little that is Good'(1917) writing of charitable work among the poor of London. He raised large sums of money for East End charities. Begbie documented & defended the confirmed reality of the SOLDIER witnessed apparitions - `The Angels of Mons' & attacked occult journalist Arthur Machen for claiming they began with his divisive bootleg "The Bowmen". Arthur Machen a`Golden Dawn'Occult Spiritist with Mr.A.E.Waite (Rider-Waite TAROT) & Satanist Aleister Crowley! The Evil Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is one of the largest influences on 20th century Western Freemason `light bearer' Occultism that continues to dispel the apparitions & sets stealthily to undermine all bible truth.The secret tyranny! Harold Begbie quote "Not to believe in the angels is to believe in a mindless, meaningless & soulless universe."
