“Ghosts and goddesses are foolish things to believe in.” So one successful American author claims as he rents an abandoned crumbling palace in post-Revolution Portugal in the late 1970’s, eager to make progress on his next bestselling novel. A chance encounter with an unnamed, yet shockingly sensual woman pulls aside the veil of the world to reveal an alluring existence defined by unnatural delights and mind-twisting hedonism. As his mysterious lover draws him further into her realm of shadows and ultimate pleasure, how much is he willing to sacrifice to keep hold of her? And will there be anything left of his sanity when his would-be goddess is through with him?
An illustrated tale told in the vein of Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe.
