S1E1: The Great God Pan (Chapter 1) by Arthur Machen

This is season 1, episode 1, and we are starting a novella by Arthur Machen titled “The Great God Pan.”

Machen was the pen name of Arthur Llewellyn Jones, a Welsh writer from the late 19th and early 20th century. He published The Great God Pan in 1894, and it is considered be a fairly influential work of supernatural horror.

Just a heads-up, this story starts off with a scientist who is kind of a creep conducting an experimental surgery on his young female ward. While there are no graphic details, his attitude toward her is gross and dismissive. If that’s not your bag, I totally get it—you might want to sit this one out.
