Shiel, M.P.: The Pale Ape. v1. 08 Jan 09

This is short fiction, but M.P. Shiel's type of fiction is categorized as WEIRD FICTION -; you know, Lovecraft, Machen, Blackwood.

Here's a short quote from Tartarus press promoting their book, The Pale Ape and Other Pulses. This quote is here to acquaint you with M.P. Shiel's reputation:

"Attaining an ethereal wedding of cosmic awe and emotional unease beyond the grasp of his peers, M.P. Shiel (1865-1947) cover scanwas an author whose lyrical, emotionally-charged style proved the perfect aesthetic vehicle with which to express the grandiose and macabre. A true eccentric, his mystically charged narrative style and technique enraptures. Poetry of the truest sort, the crystalline complexity of his images -- mirrored by his sentence structure -- is heightened further by a less apparent but crucial underlying resonance of the outré. Admired by both Arthur Machen and H.P. Lovecraft, the latter discovering the stylist's supernatural work in 1923, Shiel was the author of around 25 novels and dozens of short stories, including grotesque detective pieces, ornamental mysteries, exotic adventures, scientific romances, and supernatural horror, the last few of which make up the bulk of the fiction reprinted in The Pale Ape And Other Pulses, a collection of Shiel's hard-to-find yet easy to appreciate neglected weird fiction."

And again:

"'The Pale Ape', is a ghost story with a tragic denouement set in an English country house, and also a magnificently atmospheric adventure of confused identity and abnormal psychology."


Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it.
