De Sade: Kiss the Whip

Posted by demonik on October 28, 2010

De Sade: Kiss the Whip (Creation, 2005)

Blurb:
Four acclaimed purveyors of fantastic fiction collide in a pulp inferno of black magic, torture, and sexual depravity: Robert Bloch’s The Skull of the Marquis de Sade, Jean-Paul Denard’s Jacqueline, Daughter of the Marquis de Sade, Richard Matheson’s De Sade (novelized by Henry Clement), and Jeremy Reed’s When the Whip Comes Down.

All four works are dark tributes to the Marquis de Sade, whose literary legacy and reputation continue to inspire writers and filmmakers to this day.
