Diderot himself has developed a taste for them, and seems ready to topple into the grave. When he disappears, it is up to the Friendly Examiner to find him—at hazard of his own life and the happiness of Fabienne, his wife, who goes looking for him when he fails to return…”

About Louis Marvick

Over the span of merely a decade, Louis Marvick has developed a unique prose style of rare elegance, complex beauty and a subtle moral attentiveness in the weird genre. After the novel The ‘Star’ Ushak (Ex Occidente, 2010), the novella The Madman of Tosterglope (Ex Occidente, 2013), and a collection of short stories and novellas, Dissonant Intervals (Side Real, 2016), he has recently written a novel in three episodes whose first two parts have just been published by Zagava.
