Written by Creator/ArthurMachen in 1894 and originally published in a magazine, ''The Great God Pan'' is known for being one of the prototypes of the CosmicHorrorStory. It was a huge influence on Creator/HPLovecraft, who used it as the basis for his own story ''Literature/TheDunwichHorror'', as well as for the [[CthulhuMythos deity]] [[MotherOfAThousandYoung Shub-Niggurath]]. It is worth noting that the main themes of the story - the idea that there are ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow and [[EldritchAbomination horrors outside of our reality that we do not understand]] - are very Lovecraftian in nature, making these tropes [[OlderThanTheyThink older than you think]].

* EldritchAbomination: This version of Pan is definitely very different from the satyr god of GreekMythology. In addition, it is strongly implied Pan is also the [[Myth/CelticMythology Celtic god]] Nodens, who would later join Lovecraft's works as one of his eldritch deities...

--> Austin said nothing, but nodded his head slightly; he still looked white and sick. Villiers pulled out a drawer in the bamboo table, and showed Austin a long coil of cord, hard and new; and at one end was a running noose.\\
"It is the best hempen cord," said Villiers, "just as it used to be made for the old trade, the man told me. Not an inch of jute from end to end."\\
Austin set his teeth hard, and stared at Villiers, growing whiter as he looked.\\
"You would not do it," he murmured at last. "You would not have blood on your hands. My God!" he exclaimed, with sudden vehemence, "you cannot mean this, Villiers, that you will make yourself a hangman?"\\
"No. I shall offer a choice, and leave Helen Vaughan alone with this cord in a locked room for fifteen minutes. If when we go in it is not done, I shall call the nearest policeman. That is all."
