Three Impostors Press:
Newport: 2015
First edition, Chapbook (stapled wraps), Limited, New,
32 pp.

This edition limited to 200 numbered copies. “Award-winning Welsh author and poet Catherine Fisher provided one of the highlights of the celebratory events organized to mark the 150th anniversary of Arthur Machen’s birth in 2013 when she gave a lecture at the Caerleon Festival on Machen’s relationship with his native countryside. This publication contains an extended and edited version of that talk, in which Catherine analyses the ambiguity of Machen’s feelings for the Gwent landscape, which inspired in him both love and fear, and assesses the use he made of these emotions in his attempts to produce literature of lasting worth.” #65244
