Product Description

Product Description

Decadent literature is intrinsically and proudly a literature of moral challenge; it is sceptical, cynical, and satirical. It recognizes that everyday morality does not work either in practical or in psychological terms, and is therefore a sham, but that ideal morality is -- not necessarily unfortunately -- unattainable. This volume collects the best of Brian Stableford's decadent work, including: "Salome," "O For a Fiery Gloom and Thee," "The Last Worshipper of Proteus," "The Evil That Men Do," "Ebony Eyes," "The Fisherman's Child," "The Storyteller's Tale," "The Unluckiest Thief," "The Flowers in the Forest," "The Mandrake Garden," and "Chanterelle."

2.0 out of 5 stars Ramblings 30 Jan 2013
By H. Starrenburg - Published on
Imagine yourself a dray without wheels and without a horse. It would indeed be hard to see what it is, and harder to see where it is going.

This collection of stories is like that. They are strange tales, that may have a beginning and an end, but little in between. They are ramblings really, lighthearted and breezy, designed to enthrall the like-minded, and not likely to enthrall those who are not. It is fine to be saterical, but an author this way inclined is always dependent on the creativity of others. These decadent fantasies are therefore second-hand fantasies.

Read this book in bed, it will be of help with what you plan to do afterward.
