Machen's weird tales of the creepy and fantastic finally come to Penguin Classics. With an introduction from S.T. Joshi, editor of American Supernatural Tales, The White People and Other Weird Stories is the perfect introduction to the father of weird fiction. The title story "The White People" is an exercise in the bizarre leaving the reader disoriented and on edge. From the first page, Machen turns even fundamental truths upside-down, as his character Ambrose explains, "there have been those who have sounded the very depths of sin, who all their lives have never done an 'ill deed'" setting the stage for a tale entirely without logic.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the remote Red Lake area in northwestern Ontario, The White Ojibway Medicine Man and Other Stories is an intriguing collection of short stories based on the trials and trepidations of a young doctor treating the Ojibway from 1955 to 1963. When Joe Weinstein first saw the ad for a temporary medical position in northwestern Ontario, he had no idea that one month would stretch into the most intense and challenging seven years of his life. Thrust into a world very different from his own, Joe not only had to acclimate himself to the rugged land, but to the people, as well. Joe artfully relates his encounters with the myths and legends of the Ojibway tribes living on reservations scattered throughout the area, their conflicts with the world of the white man, and how he succeeded in becoming their medicine man. Accompanied by vivid imagery, Joe also reveals the fascinating stories behind the lumberjacks, bush pilots, missionaries, prospectors, and geologists who found their way to this remote area for one reason or another. Filled with wit and wisdom, The White Ojibway Medicine Man and Other Stories is a heartfelt tribute to the people of Red Lake. But it also shows the courage of one man to leave the familiar, enter the unknown, and make a remarkable difference in the lives of his patients.

"The Great God Pan, The White People, and Other Stories" is a collection of nineteen short stories and novellas by Arthur Machen. The Welsh author, journalist, actor, and mystic, was well-known for his early influential horror and supernatural fantasy tales published in the late 19th and early 20th century. Included in this collection are some of his most enduring and famous works, such as the novella "The Great God Pan", first published in 1890. Considered one of the best horror stories in English literature, the tale of Helen Vaughn and the mystery and violence that surrounded her life was met with much controversy and acclaim when it first appeared for its taboo subject matter and suggestive imagery. Also included are such classics as "The Bowmen", his 1914 tale of ghosts helping British soldiers at the Battle of Mons that was widely believed by many at the time to be a true story of otherworldly intervention. Machen's imaginative and spell-binding tales continue to entertain and inspire generations of readers and writers who enjoy well-crafted tales of suspense and supernatural fantasy. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

"Here, finally, is some writing with a genuine purchase on things of worth. The collection of pithy short stories, filled with a sad wonder, tells of contemporary Egyptians . . . timorously rebelling against the conformism of life along the Nile." —Observer ". . . Bakr emerges as a fine observer of her country's times, with a vision which remains, for all its engagement, quirky and distinctively personal." — Times Literary Supplement Set among the poor of contemporary Cairo, these thirteen stories and one short novella tell of women struggling to provide themselves with the basic necessities of life. They explore the limits of self-awareness, the pressures to conform, and some of the strange paths to escape that women resort to in a conservative society shot through with social and sexual prejudice and preconceptions.
