Some Notes on Machen’s 'Sixtystone'

Examines Anglo-Welsh fin-de-siècle/decadent/’weird fiction’ writer Arthur Machen’s 1895 short story The Three Impostors. In particular, his use of source material from 3rd century AD Latin grammarian Gaius Julius Solinus. Also reflects on the use and adaptation of this material by esoteric/occult writer Kenneth Grant in his Typhonian Trilogies.
