Richard Gavin has been at the leading edge of weird fiction over the past decade or so. His work is heavily informed by the likes of Machen, Blackwood, Barker, and Ligotti, although the filter is uniquely Gavin. He approaches the genre in a quiet and cerebral fashion. I recommend At Fear’s Altar if you’ve a hankering for some candlelight and scotch reading material.
I note that he’s written a book of “occult non-fiction” entitled The Benighted Path: Primeval Gnosis and the Monstrous Soul. Color me intrigued.
