The Great God Pan is a horror and fantasy novella by Welsh writer Arthur Machen. Machen was inspired to write The Great God Pan by his experiences at the ruins of a pagan temple in Wales. What would become the first chapter of the novella was published in the magazine The Whirlwind in 1890. Machen later extended The Great God Pan and it was published as a book alongside another story, "The Inmost Light", in 1894.

The Great God Pan is an 1890s horror novella that would in time inspire . In style it falls somewhere between the American horror of Edgar Allan Poe and the British crime fiction of Arthur Conan Doyle. Like Tolkien's later fairy stories this tale harkens back to Pagan Britain, but like Lovecraft the terrible knowledge of ancient gods has a psychological price and drives men mad. Nearly all of the book is told through dialogues. The effect is to put extra distance between the reader and the action. I find this to be both a strength and a weakness.
