The award-winning author of The Birthgrave invites you to Paradys, an alternate Paris, with three tales of dark magic, eroticism, and gothic fantasy. Three novellas from Tanith Lee--World Fantasy Award winner, Nebula finalist, and the first woman to win the British Fantasy Award for best novel--cast shadows on the history of the City of Light. Stained with Crimson: In the nineteenth century, poet Andre St Jean comes into possession of a ruby scarab ring, only to discover it belongs to the pale-skinned, ebony-eyed Antonina von Aaron, the most beautiful woman in Paradys. Preying upon Andre, she taps into his deepest, darkest desires, drawing him into her vampiric world of gender shapeshifting and bloody nightmares ... Malice in Saffron: In the Middle Ages, young Jehanine has had her innocence torn from her by her brutal stepfather. Fleeing to Paradys, she seeks sympathy from her stepbrother, Pierre, who accuses her of lying and casts her out into the inhospitable streets. Finding refuge in a nunnery, Jehanine tries to live in God's grace. But when dusk falls, she transforms into her male alter ego, Jehan. Prowling the alleyways with a gang of Devil-worshippers, he stalks the city's denizens, unknowingly sowing the seeds for the fall of Paradys ... Empire of Azure: In the early twentieth century, writer Anna Sanjeanne receives a cryptic note from a mysterious man:?In a week or less, I shall be dead.? On the predicted date, Anna follows the stranger's trail. A chain of clues--a shattered window, a hanging corpse, a leather-bound diary, and a portrait of an unknown woman--soon lead the young journalist toward a sinister and ancient force ... Told with lush fantastical prose and an acute aesthetic sense, The Book of the Damned ventures into a morbid and disquieting parallel world, exploring the recesses of identity, gender, and sexual transgression that lie within

The book of the mad by Tanith Lee( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A surreal gothic fantasy of three nefarious cities: Paradise, Paradis, and Paradys Welcome to Paradise, where the sun hasn't shone for years and a callous, ritual-obsessed populace roams the decayed metropolis enshrouded in fog. The citizens are unhinged, murder and incest are praised, and madness reigns. Only a pair of twins, Felion and Smara, remains sane. But their sole hope of escaping the city is a mysterious ice labyrinth connecting parallel worlds. Thus begins the sinister finale to the Secret Books of Paradys, in which three alternate versions of one city--Paradise, Paradis, and Paradys--are the layered canvas upon which twisted narratives unfold. In Paradis, Leocadia, a striking and eccentric painter, lives a hedonistic and unremorseful life. She is the sole heir to her uncle's fortune, but the ease of life this affords her becomes a dizzying burden when her lover is murdered and doctors lock her up in an asylum called the Residence. Do the medics want to cure her madness--or do they wish to drive her insane? Meanwhile, in Paradys, fifteen-year-old Hilde is a pale and perfect child with milk-white skin, ginger hair, and an obedient and loving countenance. But Hilde has a secret nocturnal life, budding sexuality, and lustful heart that becomes irrevocably engorged at the sight of a handsome actor with the face of a priest. Written in author Tanith Lee's signature style, The Book of the Mad breaks taboos, relishes horror, and conjures the perverse
