    Edgar Allan Poe s great detective, Auguste Dupin, combined with H.P Lovecraft s Cthulhu mythos I had to read this novel And I m glad I did Stableford s novel, which is a first person account by Dupin s friend, describes the unfolding mystery of the Cthulhu Encryption, an inscription in the flesh of a dying mental patient who appears to be a prostitute but believes herself to be the legendary Isolde Leonys of Tristan and Isolde fame What follows is a mystery adventure that doubles as a cultural literacy test, invoking not only knowledge of Poe and Lovecraft, but also the history of the 16th century English occultist and medium Edward Kelley also known as Edward Talbot and his alchemist associate John Dee, the so called immortal German alchemist the Comte de Saint Germain of the 18th century, and both Arthurian romance and Shakespeare s play A Midsummer Night s Dream Did I mention there were pirates, too I didn t realize this was part of a series which includes The Mad Trist, The Quintessence of August, and Valdemar s Daughter when I first read the book, but I think now I may have to read the others.What I appreciated most was Stableford s adept handling of Victorian Gothic language and description, as well as the great texture and literacy of his descriptions Here is an example I m surely superfluous to requirements, and far too vulnerable to bad dreams Never superfluous, my friend, he said, and not as vulnerable as you imagine I was flattered by the compliment And we have Chapelain too, I added All for one and one for all like the three musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis More like Ethos, Pathos and Logos, he muttered, drawing his cloak around him to protect him from a sudden gust of wind He had named the three components of classical rhetoric, from which Dumas had presumably derived two of his musketeers names, but not the third Chapelain, I presumed, was Ethos or Athos, and I was Pathos or Porthos I hoped that the adventure confronting us was one in which a Logos would, after all, prove useful than an Aramis.

    Nada como um lovecraftianismo para ajudar a passar o frio destas noites de inverno Este romance de Stableford n o ganhar certamente pontos por ser uma obra profunda, daquelas que nos apaixona por novas ideias ou muda o sentido da vida, do universo e de tudo o resto, mas um divertido e muito bem urdido pastiche que remistura personagens cl ssicas da fic o fant stica com personagens reais de contornos fantasistas, lendas arturianas, folclore bret o, tesouros perdidos de danados piratas, bibli filos convictos e uma boa dose daquele cujo sono sob as profundezas de R lyeh n o deve ser incomodado A hist ria gira volta de uma misteriosa louca internada num not rio asilo parisiense, que manifesta no seu corpo estranhas inscri es que o olhar atento do detective Ars ne Dupin detecta ser um criptograma incompleto que invoca o tenebroso Cthulhu O resto pura aventura, com shoggots a possuir o corpo de criminosos comuns, amuletos contendo segredos, e homens que talvez sejam mais velhos do que aparentam, semi imortais gra as a t cnicas de medita o avan ada que lhes permitem dormir e sonhar durante d cadas, sendo com isso capazes de ver mais al m das fronteiras t nues do real Aventura divertida, que se distingue pelo sentido de ambi ncia com que Stableford constr i a narrativa Somos levados aos arrepios das noites escuras, aos mist rios dos ocultistas, colis o entre o lend rio e o real, revendo algumas personagens ficcionais cl ssicas.
