Hanns Heinz Ewers is a vastly ignored and misunderstood master of the horror and fantasy genre of literature. He was an associate of Guido von List, Lanz von Liebenfels, and Aleister Crowley and later a member of the NSDAP, but also a nudist, pioneer of sexology and decadent poet, film maker, playwright and cabaret performer. This volume contains most of Ewers' stories which had been previously translated and also includes two newly translated tales: "The Water-Corpse" and "From the Diary of an Orange Tree." There is also an extensive 22 page introduction that makes the reader familiar with the facts of Ewers' life and his sometimes overtly "Satanic" ideas and philosophies to an extent never before discussed in the English language.
