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.

Blurb:

DARKNESS INCARNATE
Riveredge Township was a quiet place and Ken and Marcia Creighton were an ordinary couple. When they married she put the past behind her, forgetting the weird commune in the Black Hills of Dakota. But Ken couldn’t forget. Because fifteen-year-old Melody was Marcia’s daughter, but not his, the beautiful but icy child of an
unknown father.

When Melody’s nightmares began Ken thought she needed a psychiatrist, but the terrifying dreams sounded horribly familiar to Marcia. They took her back sixteen years to Melody’s conception in the drug-crazed commune. Then Marcia had been a virgin, a living sacrifice to the powers of darkness. In a ritual orgy of evil she had conceived the daughter she called her own – SATAN’S LOVE CHILD.
