LIMITED EDITION
1 OF 2000 COPIES


THE KINGDOM OF EVIL
BY
BEN HECHT

ILLUSTRATIONS BY ANTHONY ANGAROLA

PASCAL COVICI, CHICAGO
1922
Octavo, 211pp

Sequel to FANTAZIUS MALLARE: A MYSTERIOUS OATH (1922).

 ". set in a phantasmagoric private universe in which fragments of Mallare's shattered psyche appear as characters awaiting the arrival of the god Synthemus, whose advent proves to be not quite what they had anticipated. Deeply felt exercises [taken with FANTAZIUS MALLARE] in sarcastic fantasy. ." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-170. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 109. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature II, pp. 535-38. Bleiler (1948), p. 146. Reginald 07024.

BEN HECHT FOLLOWED HIS CONTROVERSIAL EROTO-BIZZARE NOVEL "FANTAZIUS MALLARE" WITH "THE KINGDOM OF EVIL" IN 1924.
THIS NEW NOVEL WAS AGAIN PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED, THIS TIME BY ANTHONY ANGAROLA, AND SOLD AS A LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER.
AS FOR PROSE, IT GIVES CREDENCE TO THE OFT-REPEATED CLAIM THAT HECHT COULD WRITE IN ANY STYLE.  

WHEREAS "FANTAZIUS MALLARE" WAS PATTERNED AFTER THE FRENCH DECADENTS, "THE KINGDOM OF EVIL" IS MORE IN LINE WITH THE WEIRD TALES STYLE OF H.P. LOVECRAFT ET AL. IN ITS EVOCATION OF A NIGHTMARISH REALM OF OTHERWORLDLY CREATURES.
