The Red Hand

(1906)
A Novella by

 
 
First published in 1895, "The Red Hand" is a short story by Welsh author Arthur Machan that includes the main characters from his novella "The Three Impostors". The story revolves around gruesome a murder, the only glue for which is an interesting ancient stone axe. Arthur Machen (1863 - 1947) was a Welsh author and renowned mystic during the 1890s and early 20th century who garnered literary acclaim for his contributions to the supernatural, horror, and fantasy fiction genres. His seminal novella "The Great God Pan" (1890) has become a classic of horror fiction, with Stephen King describing it as one of the best horror stories written in the English language. Other notable fans of his gruesome tales include William Butler Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle; and his work has been compared to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde. This fantastic example of classic horror fiction is highly recommended for fans of the macabre and those who have enjoyed other works by this author. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
