Pale Ape (The) and Other Pulses Synopsis: CONTENTS: 'Introduction by Brian Stableford, 'The Pale Ape', 'The Case of Euphemia Raphash', 'Cummings King Monk', 'A Bundle of Letters', 'Huguenin's Wife', 'Many a Tear', 'The House of Sounds', 'The Spectre-Ship', 'The Great King' and 'The Bride. SYNOPSIS: A contemporary of Oscar Wilde, Arthur Machen and Count Stenbock, Matthew Phipps Shiel could surpass any of them in the sheer Decadent luxuriance of his writing. Originally collected in 1911, the ten stories of The Pale Ape and Other Pulses date from the mid-1890s into the first decade of the twentieth century, providing a fascinating cross-section of Shiel's evolving literary work in a rapidly changing cultural climate. 'Pulses' have been defined as 'a stroke; an impact; also an attack'. Shiel's mastery of this subversive technique, one of the hallmarks of the conte cruel, is amply demonstrated in 'Huguenin's Wife' and 'The Spectre-Ship', tales of relentlessly-unfolding doom, while 'The House of Sounds' (an updated version of 'Vaila' from Shapes in the Fire, 1896), and 'The Great King' are triumphantly Poesque explorations of morbid decay. 'Cummings King Monk' is Shiel's equally subversive take on the crime story genre, while 'Bundle of Letters' and 'The Bride' are warped romances hinging on confused identities and dramatic transformations of personality. The title story, 'The Pale Ape', is a ghost story with a tragic denouement set in an English country house, and also a magnificently atmospheric adventure of confused identity and abnormal psychology. Acknowledged authority on the Decadent movement, Brian Stableford provides a new Introduction to this first republication of M.P. Shiel's The Pale Ape, which will enhance the reputation of one of the most original exponents of fin de siècle Decadence. REVIEWS: 'Moments of terror-laden friction -- emotionally charged moments of explosion -- abound in this collection. . . . this volume instils a sense of both mysticism and earthly relevance to fantasies which celebrate the outré in the truest sense of the term, allowing imagination to run unfettered. The result? Stories without genres, nightmares without boundaries.' William Simmons, Infinity Plus 'Tartarus Press, a small UK imprint devoted to weird and supernatural fiction of high quality, after having reprinted Shiel's Prince Zaleski and The Purple Cloud presents us now with a new edition of The Pale Ape, an elegant, hardcover volume graced by a learned Introduction by Brian Stableford, a renowned authority in the field of decadent literature.' Mario Guslandi, Dark Wisdom issue # 10, 2006 'Attractive and intelligently edited.' Jim Rockhill, All Hallows. Language: eng. Seller Inventory # WFTB #069
