The Tainted Earth. George Berguno.

The Tainted Earth

Egaeus Press:
Shaftesbury: 2012
First edition, Hardcover, Limited, Fine sans dust jacket as issued,
223 pp.


This edition limited to 300 copies. “The Tainted Earth features eight stories written in the tradition of European Fantastique, blending history with the uncanny, and the beautiful with the hideous and strange. The collection also includes a novella in three cantos, a bizarre story about one man’s search for a secret society dedicated to the preservation of useless tales. Six of the eight stories, as well as the novella are previously unpublished and appear in The Tainted Earth for the first time. These stories are rooted in ancient European, Latin American and Far Eastern folk motifs; a characteristic which sets the book apart from George's first two collections (published by Ex Occidente). All of the stories embody George's lifelong fascination with death, impermanence, betrayal, regret, spiritual homelessness, and the imponderable nature of time.” Full-color endpapers. Quite beautiful. #49466
