From SAROB PRESS comes a one-off special visit to a dark and Gothic past ...
Albert Power is the author of Mad Matinée in Baku (Passport Levant, 2010). He has also edited and introduced volumes for The Swan River Press, Dublin.
Slaver Heap is the author’s first novel and is a return to the Gothic Romance as written by Radcliffe, Lewis and Maturin. The story presents a near-complete verity in regard to history, language, court procedures, composition and setting ~ here, then, is a true “Gothic” delight ... wild picturesque landscapes, a dark mysterious castle, beautiful heroines, evil villains and a hero (of sorts) ~ all with the brooding menace of the ‘supernatural’ Skelochar lurking mysteriously and adding to a heady and macabre mix set in the Ireland of the 1720s.
