'He writes a clear, light prose, and he makes his interests, however bizarre, seem important.' - Punch 'One of the more earnest and interesting writers of his generation.' - The Guardian 'He has the kind of story-telling power which could charm the birds off the trees.' - The Journal (Newcastle upon Tyne) Gerard Sorme has been hired by a New York publisher to edit a book on Esmond Donelly, notorious 18th-century Irish rake, friend of Rousseau, Boswell and Horace Walpole, and author of a bawdy work on the deflowering of virgins. Sorme's quest for information on Donelly takes him to the home of a pyromaniac and flagellant in Baton Rouge, the labyrinthine corridors of the British Museum, and a remote castle in Ireland. As he digs deeper into the mystery of Donelly, Sorme uncovers a tale of intrigue, conspiracy, and murder involving a secret society, the Sect of the Phoenix, that dates back to medieval times. But the Sect still exists, and Sorme's researches have not gone unnoticed by powerful men who have their own reasons for wanting the truth about Esmond Donelly to remain hidden. . . . The God of the Labyrinth (1970), the third book of Wilson's 'Gerard Sorme trilogy', is a novel in the mode of Jorge Luis Borges that explores two of Wilson's major interests - philosophy and sex - in the form of a thrilling literary mystery. This edition, the first in more than 30 years, includes a new introduction by Gary Lachman and the original afterword by the author, in which he discusses the role of sex in literature and defends his work against charges of pornography.… (mer)

What was Ben Franklin and those fellas really up to? Monkeying around with Jeremy Bentham and the fellas, it seems. ( )

No, I want sky not sea, prefer the larks to shrimps,

And never dive so deep but that I get a glimpse

O' the blue above, breath of air around. Elvire,

I seize—by ctching at the melted beryl here,

The tawning hair that has just trickled off—Fifine.

Browning
'God keep from hurt', said he, 'the good fellow whose great codpiece has just saved his life. God keep from harm the one whose long codpiece has been worth to him, in one day, one hundred and sixty thousand and ninie crowns. God keep from hurt the one who, by his long codpiece, has saved a whole city from dying of famine. And by God, I'm going to make a book On the Advantages of Long Codpieces as soon as I have time'.

In fact, he did compose a large book, and a very good one, complete with diagrams; but it has not been published yet, as far as I know.
Rabelais, Bk II, Ch. 15
