This review
drew my attention to the new edition of Samalio Pardulus. Instantly wishlisted.

The book goes on my wishlist, too, and equally striking was this passage from the article:
Can there be an elite without hierarchy? Of course. Would such an elite then belong to everyone? Naturally. Yet if a ‘real elite’ is a question of power, then why is it always crippled by its own weight, by its monstrous giving over in the face of the ruthlessness of everyday life? Because to meet the world, certain people must become a kind of autarch (to borrow and twist Ernst Jünger’s concept) driven by solitary courses to conserve energy: riddles and visions, masks and strategies that work until they can no longer deceive. In contrast, the power elite – appointed by a firmly corporatist history, brutal and even expert, of necessity racist and woman-hating – depend on a guarded separation from secret weakness.

Have you read the book already? The LT work shows no reviews.

I have, but failed to review it, which is negligent of me. Like everything else I have received from the Wakefield Press, it is well translated and in a tasteful format.

Interesting, especially the version with illustrations from Kubin. I'll look out for it.

Also look for Curt Corrinth. an author I hope Wakefield or others will republish more titles (e.g.: Die Leichenschändung: Ein Spiel vom wollüstigen Tod) for readers in English. The description sold the book:

And then there is this:

There are certainly less curious, more common entertainments.

Curt Corrinth certainly looks promising. I found Samalio Pardulus a bit underwhelming, or perhaps I was expecting too much.
