Emile Erckmann (1822-1899) and Alexandre Chatrian (1826-1890) used the name Erckmann-Chatrian for their works jointly written. They were both born in the departement of Moselle, in the Lorraine region in the extreme north-east of France. They specialised in military fiction and ghost stories in a rustic mode, applying to the Vosges mountain range and the Alsace-Lorraine region techniques inspired by story-tellers from the Black Forest. Life-long friends who first met in the spring of 1847, they finally quarreled in 1886, after which no more stories appeared from their pen. In 1890 Chatrian died, and Erckmann wrote a few pieces under his own name. Tales of supernatural horror by the duo that are famous in English include The Wild Huntsman (1871) and The Man-Wolf and Other Tales (1876).

"The Shining Pyramid" is a 1895 short story by Welsh author and mystic Arthur Machan. When stones begin miraculously arranging themselves on the edge of one young man's private land, he and his friend begin trying to decipher them in any way possible. When they realise that it might be a dark portent, they become desperate to achieve their goal before it is too late. A fantastic example of classic supernatural fiction, “The Shining Pyramid” would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. 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 ever 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. 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.
