The Magic Comb
One bright morning in August little Mary Louise put on her hat and went
trudging across the meadow to the beach.
It was the first time she had been trusted out alone since the family
had moved to the seashore for the summer; for Mary Louise was a little
girl, nothing about her was large, except her round gray eyes.

How could this man awaken with no past—no childhood—no recollection except of a vague world of terror from which his mother cried out for vengeance and the slaughter of his own people stood as a monument of infamy?

AN ESSENCE OF THE DUSK
Love turns venom, now I see,
Flouted Beauties vipers be.
TRANSLATED FROM THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT
DEDICATED TO THE OTHER SEX.
More generally known, perhaps, than any other Hindoo legend, is the
story of the demon, R'AHU, who brings about ECLIPSES, by devouring the
Sun and Moon. For when the gods had upchurned the nectar, the delectable
Butter of the Brine, Ráhu's mouth watered at the very sight of it: and
"in the guise of a god" he mingled unperceived among them, to partake.
The novel opens with Carl Foster, a recently qualified doctor, coming to London to try and make his fortune. He meets a famous tenor, Signor Alresca, who suffers a dreadful injury backstage and Foster tends to him. He thus meets the lead soprano, Rosetta Rosa, and falls hopelessly in love with her.
Alresca takes Foster under his wing and they travel to Alresca's home in Bruges. It is clear to Foster that Alresca has some strange obsession. Foster also notices a stranger who seems to be dogging his footsteps.
Things take an even more sinister turn when Alresca inexplicably dies. ....
