 The Green Eyes 

by Henri de Saint-Georges - adapted  by Brian Stableford - cover by Fabien Fernandez. READ AN EXCERPT - 240 p. - US$ 21.95

In The Green Eyes  (1872) young Albert Dumesnil wonders if the soul of his recently departed uncle has not reincarnated itself in the old man’s cat, Freyschutz. The text is carefully ambiguous in its presentation of the narrator’s account, always leaving open the possibility that the strange circumstances are the results of obsessive delusion and hallucination. The Green Eyes has a casual verve that sets it apart from other contemporary exercises in the same genre.
