In his world of hallucination and twisted eroticism, Mallare needs a woman to worship him as a god- aided by Goliath, his deformed dwarf servant he entices a submissive gypsy girl whom he strives to enthrall in chains of horror and ecstasy. THE DARK EIDOLON?is a classic hermetic fiction by Clark Ashton Smith, a master of decadence and literary horror whose death-tainted work has yet to be properly evaluated. Together, FANTAZIUS MALLARE and THE DARK EIDOLON form a uniquely deranged book of the dead, a rare but classic grimoire of macabre American decadence.
