¶ ‘There are hints or indications of new paths,’ was Machen’s typically modest comment on the book to his old friend A.E. Waite. In this last collection of his fiction, the Apostle of Wonder shows he has lost none of his visionary power. Contains: 'The Exalted Omega', 'The Children of the Pool', 'The Bright Boy', 'The Tree of Life', 'Out of the Picture', 'Change'.
