4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Meyrink. 25 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Meyrink is a writer who is overlooked by English-speaking readers, who tend to read his fellow Prague resident: Kafka instead.
That is a shame because Meyrink is an extraordinary writer and I suspect readers of horror, psychological suspense and historical fiction will all find something of interest in his works. This reader which includes an extract of his best known novel, the psychological suspense The Golem, extracts from his other novels, short stories and essays

4.0 out of 5 stars Meyrink for the Millions 9 April 2012
By Arno Parke - Published on
Leave it to Dedalus to compile such a nice tribute to a totally (and totally undeservedly) neglected author. As the previous reviewer noted, Meyrink, while the center of a small cult in Europe and Latin America, seems almost unknown elsewhere. He's mostly remembered, if at all, for his novel "The Golem," an undisputable classic of weird fiction admired by the likes of Borges and Lovecraft. Sometimes compared to Franz Kafka (that other guy who wrote strange tales set in Old Prague), Meyrink really has a voice all his own - at once more decadent, mystical and absurd. This neat little compilation will appeal to hardcore fan or Meyrink newcomer alike - containing as it does choice excerpts from his previously published works as well as rare material never before available in english. Recommended to all fans of occult fiction as well as fans of the aforementioned authors, Machen, Poe and Hesse. Also, if you like this book, be sure to check out some of the other titles offered by Dedalus - a very unusual publishing imprint and I mean that the best way possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Meyrink Sampler 1 July 2011
By Mark Newbold - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This may well serve as the best introduction to Gustav Meyrink for an English speaking audience. Long esteemed in German & Spanish speaking countries, Meyrink is known for his macabre fiction in the tradition of Poe and Ambrose Bierce as well as for his biting social satire. This volume provides excerpts of his major novels including his best known, 'The Golem' and my personal favorite 'The Green Face.' What makes this compilation even more noteworthy is the inclusion of some of his esoteric writings. Many devotees look to Meyrink as an authority on esoteric knowledge and insight, he was a practitioner of yoga, a student of Taoism, and the Theosophical traditions. Included in this collection is an excerpt of his most esoteric novel, the Taoist inspired 'The White Dominican' a deceptively simple work whose hidden riches only become apparent with careful reading and re-reading. Highly recommended to those new to Meyrink and those long familiar with his work.

I was led by the description to thinking that this contained several complete novels. That would have been normal for a "reader" edition. Instead it contains only short stories and single chapters from several novels.
