THE SECRET BOOKS OF PARADYS III & IV
(reprint) omnibus: 1993
omnibus of: THE BOOK OF THE DEAD (1991) + THE BOOK OF THE MAD (1993)
The Book of the Dead. A collection of linked stories set in Paradys, a city bearing some resemblance to Paris - a twilight, feverish, fantastic sort of Paris. These are stories with elements of nightmare and eroticism - almost a trademark of Tanith Lee.
A handsome youth shocks his family by marrying a white weasel. On their bridal bed a beautiful maiden emerges from the weasel's discarded pelt... Two childhood lovers wed. Little does Roland know that Marie-Mau's pure body is host to the pointed fangs of Evil... Children and weak things wither after coming in contact with Julie d'Is. What ancient curse was bestowed upon this infant poisoner in the womb of her foolish mother?
