Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, horror, anthology

Edited by Brendan Connell.

There was something about Claus Laufenburg that drew them, mothers and daughters, princes and paupers, spicy Spaniards and jet-set Swedes, to him. Was it his dangerous swagger, his arts and skills of passion, or the glittering universe of his gigantic collection of Rumanian limited edition hardbacks?

In these five stories of reckless lust and steaming blood, filthy talk and degenerate banter, by five of the boldest voices in the New Pleasant Movement, the reader is invited to explore the ins and outs of one of Germany’s most beloved bibliophiles as he moves through the world of physical matter.

The book that Hollywood refused.
