Rank your favorite 10 Arthur Machen stories
Following my first attempt to request rankings of the stories of Algernon Blackwood, I figured that itís time to give Arthur Machen a go. In this thread, please rank your ten favorite Arthur Machen stories. Your favorite story should be numbered 1, while your less preferred stories should ascend down to the number 10. If you haven't read or like 10 of his stories, you don't have to fill out a complete list, but I will only include submissions for those who have ranked at least 5 stories. Here's a link to a list of his complete works.

Once I have sufficient results, I'll put the details into a spreadsheet and create a table to share with the respondents. Thanks for participating!

So far I have 14 responses across the various sites I've posted this request on. Be sure to chime in, especially if you've read more of Machen's stories beyond the commonly anthologized ones. I'll stop taking rankings on March 1st and publish the results shortly after. This group contributed a few excellent rankings for my Algernon Blackwood rankings, so I'm hoping to at least get a couple of responses this time around.
