About this Item: Ronin Publishing, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Interest in heroin is surging back after years of dormancy. Why? Supply and demand! Drug cartels have increased the supply of heroin, so that it is cheaper and purer than ever before. Secondly, the Federal government s recent crack down on popular prescription opiates like OxcyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin so they are increasingly hard and costly to obtain on the black market. A recent study reveals that people who had recently abused prescription opiates are 19 times more likely to try heroin. Fueled by a boom in supply and a decline in cost, heroin use is up around the nation and spreading to segments of the population once considered unlikely users. Cool people are doing it! Remember the old slogan: Sex, Drugs, and Rock n Roll ? Heroin has a sexy side--very sexy. Black Opium: Ecstasy of the Forbidden brings heroin s sexy visions to life. The world of black opium is a forbidden world where human bodies find themselves possessed and driven by desires which consume them in the flames of hot-blooded ecstasy, Black Opium describes every aspect of an opium smoker s life in lurid detail. Often compared to James Joyces Dubliners, Farrere s Black Opium consists of seventeen compelling tales delineating six periods in the history and use of opium. This edition of Black Opium is a reissue of And/Or Press 1974 Fitz Hugh Ludlow edition, which features salacious illustrations by Alexander King, and the addition of a foreword by Dr. Moraes.

Fairberg (New York), 6 1/2 x 9 7/8 inches tall orange cloth hardcover, no dust jacket, black lettering to spine, illustrated with striking black-and-white drawings by Alexander King, 262 pp. Moderate soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers. Mild bumping to tips. Slight dampstaining to top edges of blank front free-endpaper and pastedown. One page with a bit of chipping and a small edge tear to the lower edge.

Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~EEE~ [2.5P] Claude Farrere, pseudonym of Frederic-Charles Bargone (1876-1957), was a French author of novels, many of which are based in exotic locations as Istanbul, Saigon or Nagasaki. He was a friend of, and was partly mentored by, two other famous French writers of this period, Pierre Louys (who wrote the preface to this work) and Pierre Loti, the latter having been as well a former Navy officer and a writer of books based in overseas countries and cultures. Farrere was a prolific writer, and many of his books are based on his overseas travels and on exotic cultures, especially in Asia, the Orient and North Africa, partly based on his travels when he was an officer with the French Navy.
