    This is a beautifully written, enthralling, and savagely misanthropic novel. Although it comes to us marketed as "horror" fiction, with blurbs from Mark Samuels and Ligotti, it transcends genre limitations. Its central premise is only slightly fantastic: the seemingly arbitrary cru...

    'Life is a kind of brutal slavery' Quentin S. Crisp, born in England in 1972, is first of all NOT the Quentin Crisp (1908 - 1999) personality made famous by his outrageous writing, antics, and appearances on stage and in film. No, this Quentin S. Crisp is described as a young writer...
