Of Love and Other Demons

Nobel Prize winner and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera Gabriel Garca Mrquez blends the natural with supernatural in Of Love and Other Demons – a novel which explores community superstition and collective hysteria. ‘An ash-grey dog with a white blaze on its forehead burst on to the rough terrain of the market on the first Sunday of December’ When a witch doctor appears on the Marquis de Casalduero’s doorstep prophesising a plague of rabies in the Colombian seaport he dismisses her claims – until he hears that his young daughter Sierva Mara was one of four people bitten by a rabid dog and the only one to survive. Sierva Mara appears completely unscathed – but as rumours of the plague spread the Marquis and his wife wonder at her continuing good health. In a town consumed by superstition it’s not long before they and everyone else put her survival down to a demonic possession and begin to see her supernatural powers as the cause of the town’s woes. Only the young priest charged with exorcizing the evil spirit recognises the girl’s sanity but can he convince the town that it’s not her that needs healing?

Ghost Stories Of Henry James (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. The Gothic novel featuring dark tales of tragedy romance revenge torture and ancient villainies tinged with horror and the supernatural became the vogue in the late eighteen and early nineteenth centuries. This unique collection presents the best and the most diverse of this fascinating genre. In Horace Walpole s The Castle of Otranto often regarded as the first true Gothic romance we have a template for such works which other writers adopted and adapted. With its dark cruelties and fiercely passionate dramas the power of Walpole s prose remains magically potent today. In Vathek William Beckford developed the form further introducing Orientalism to the Gothic mix of horror and mystery creating the finest European imitation of the Arabian Nights. With his novel Nightmare Abbey Thomas Love Peacock satirises the format to great comic effect while still retaining the essential chilling elements. This fantastic collection runs the gamut of Gothic fiction presenting an entertaining and a thrilling overview of the genre.
