Caversham's Descent - Revisiting a Woman of Haiti - A Chinese Horror Revisited
3-Books of Erotic Female-Led Mind-Control & Horror
Three books of mind control and erotic horror of the female-led variety from Rafael Menton open with “Caversham’s Descent”, in which the year is 1955 and, exiting Victoria station on his return home from work, the headline waiting to greet him at a news-stand tells of riots in Egypt and the collapse of his investment there and the loss of his quarterly dividend. Devastated, he decides to wait until the next day to contact the English friend in Alexandria looking after his interests there. Only to find when he wakes from a fitful sleep the following morning, that he is… Already there!... What follows will be a waking nightmare and a re-acquaintance with a woman who insists she has known him for centuries - and in the most intimate of ways… A woman of some power who now wants him back! Next, we have “Revisiting a Woman of Haiti”, our writer’s homage to the great erotic horror fiction from a different century. An interracial classic describing the inability of a man of logic to withstand the power of the occult… A man lacking the strength required to fight it when that power has been placed in the hands of a vindictive and merciless practitioner of Obeah from the South-Seas… No matter the shame and humiliation that will result from his submission. Mr Menton concludes the two-hander with another tale of retro horror and obsession in “A Chinese Horror Revisited”; in which he takes us back to the period of post-Suez London, and the tale of how a highly-regarded heart surgeon makes visual acquaintance with a woman of the Orient at a party and finds his life spinning out of control. Which is when he receives an invitation to dinner from a friend arrived back from the East… An invitation that will lead to the end of his life as both a doctor and a man! If you enjoy believable stories that trigger those more stygian and erotic areas of the imagination while invoking the spirit of assertive women it’s more than probable you’ll delight in Mr Menton's stories from a female-led perspective on the subject of crime, horror, the occult and the erotic, together with the domestic and sexual, bondage of man to woman. Mr Menton is a UK-based Professor of English Literature with a retro passion for the early to mid-twentieth-century fiction of mystery, crime, and horror & romance with erotic female-led undertones. Mr Menton’s literary tastes range from Doyle and Blackwood and on to Rohmer – as well as indulging in a more contemporary take of his own on the subjects.
