"A face looked into mine, and, in front of me, were those dreadful eyes. Then, whether I was dead or living, I said to myself that this could be nothing human,-nothing fashioned in God''s image could wear such a shape as that. Fingers were pressed into my cheeks, they were thrust into my mouth, they touched my staring eyes, shut my eyelids, then opened them again, and-horror of horrors!-the blubber lips were pressed to mine-the soul of something evil entered into me in the guise of a kiss."
Annotation:
Richard Marsh's THE BEETLE actually sold more copies than Braum Stoker's DRACULA in 1897, the year they were both published. Marsh tapped into the ethos of the era, seasoning his deliciously murderous tale with dashes of popular ideas of the times, such as mesmerism and Egyptology. History ultimately honored Stoker's tale, which became the definitive Victorian supernatural fable, but THE BEETLE should not be overlooked. The Beetle--a powerful, shape-shifting creature--comes to London with a gruesome mission, dragging a popular politician's nasty secrets into the light and exacting revenge for Isis's followers.
