Land of liminality and the illusions of the east, of flammiferous spirituality and earth-spewn fires, caught within the claw of communism. The Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan. Spectral retribution for attempted unmentionable sin in the Old City of Baku; the horror of a millennial burial pit in an abandoned church; sub-human linkages from dead aeons that brood beneath a mountain cave near Iran: offering apotropaic transmutations of carnality into a vehicle for redemption - but not always.
Azerbaijan Tales comprises three decadent novellas by an imaginative author of the wandering macabre. Two are new and previously unpublished while an earlier incarnation of the third appeared as a rare, very limited edition.
The contents are as follows:
Matinee in Baku
The Pit Crypts of Kish
The Sanatorium at Chakhirshirincelo
The book is a lithographically printed, 256 page hardback with colour endpapers; limited to just 260 copies.
