Hello everyone,
I have written a new article on Berthe de Courrière, the partner of Remy de Gourmont and inspiration for Sixtine, Le Fantome, and most famously the main inspiration for Madame Chantelouve in La Bas. She was a fascinating demimondaine. I hope you enjoy this article, its the start of a larger series of 3 articles on the "Satanic Feminists of Bohemian Paris."

Excellent! - I had no idea this was yours; I spread it all over a certain social media site yesterday. More, please.

A little levity to the Boschian horrorshow of Election 2016:

According to Lucien Greaves, spokesman for The Satanic Temple:

Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency, and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith. It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.

Glad to see the craft of invective is still alive and put to good use.
