The Qliphoth

By Paul A Green

Fantasy, Literary fiction, Magical realism, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


Paul A Green's cult novel, first published by Libros Libertad in 2007, is still available in both Smashwords/Kindle (UK & USA) and paperback (Canada & North America). It's a dazzling fusion of occult fantasy and speculative fiction that evokes a wild transmutation of everyday life. Magick collides with physics to create a fissile reality – a voyage into dangerous zones that veers between hilarity and horror... Lucas, a bewildered student, seeks out his dad Nick, psychedelic-era wreck and self-proclaimed channel for "Qabalistic knowledge", now confined to a mental hospital alongside Wolfbane, a forgotten rock & roll icon. Pauline, his rationalist teacher mother dreads their encounter. Her nightmares seem realised when Nick escapes and Lucas disappears – to enter a parallel world, peopled by a rogues' gallery of bohemian riff-raff and sexy priestesses, whose operations – artistic, erotic, criminal or magickal – are scribed with hallucinatory intensity. Think Mervyn Peake meets William Burroughs - and add a dash of Aleister Crowley... This genre-bender is worm-holed with dark wit and satire. The manias of an imploding alternate world are revealed as a modulation of our obsessions, here at the base of The Qabalistic Tree, amid the broken shells and wreckage – the Qliphoth – of our Creation. And sea-side resorts will never seem the same again...
