Hans Carl Artmann
THE SKEWED TALES


£12.00

Out of print.

Selected and translated by Malcolm Green.

Frankenstein meets Alice, Mortimer Grizzleywold de Vere encounters the werewolf, the inhabitants of Mandrak suffer the depredations of Dracul. Artmann, the prestidigitateur of the Vienna Group, takes a sideways glance at the principal myths of Gothic fiction and re-writes them in a language which combines the loucheness of Wittgenstein with the exactitude of Bulwer Lytton.

This selection appeared so apposite that it was later published in German, without any acknowledgement of course!
