Now here's what you motherfuckers should be reading ([livejournal.com profile] mathematical take note! Here's your Monthly Selections from the Pegritz Book of the Month Club):

Perfume, by Patrick Suskind. My dearest Kirsten and I both adore this book. It's lush, it's decadent, it's vicious, and it's beautiful--and it's about a murderous Parfumier in 18th-Century France.

Dead Girls, by Richard Calder. Prepubescent sex. The death-wish inherent in the human mind.  Decadence (I like decadent things, okay? Shut up and drink your absinthe). Robots. Dolls. Vampires. Murder. Medical paraphillia and Vald the Impaler mythology. All in one 130-page novel. I'm currently writing an entire DcfP EP about the book called Strange Genitalia.


The short story "A Place to Sleep" by Derek C. F. Pegritz. That's right, people. Check it out. I'd love to see what you folks have to think of that weird little tale. ([livejournal.com profile] greygirlbeast, I'd be really curious to see what you think of this one, since I began writing it right after I finished Threshold.)
