THE DEATH OF PERSEPHONE

 

THE DEATH OF PERSEPHONE

By I.A. Watson

A Chillwater Publication

337 pgs

Okay, so let’s be extremely clear here, New Pulp scribe I.A. Watson is a genius. Period. In the time we’ve come to know him as a friend, collaborator and fan, he has constantly amazed us with his knowledge about….well, everything. Not only has he contributed to practically ever major New Pulp publisher out there, his new Sherlock Holmes adventures are marvelous and his recently completed retelling of the classic Robin Hood series for Airship 27 Production was incredible in both richness of storytelling and authentic historical background.

So what would you expect when Watson turns his amazing mental library on Greek Mythology? What you get is a truly bizarre mash up of myth and Gothic Romances. We won’t elaborate as the author himself pens an essay at the book’s end detailing the conception of this particular tale.

Kore Deione, the Maiden Goddess of Spring Harvest and the daughter of Zeus, is kidnapped by Hades, the King of the Dead. He has fallen madly in love with her and envisions her bringing to the Underworld a true completion it has never known. He sees what others can, but the task at had is to convince she, who he now calls the Lady Persephone, of his genuine love for her and the realization of what it can bring forth. And like any iconic Gothic Romance, Hades has a dark secret which the maid is obsessed to uncover, even if it means her own ruination.

With “The Death of Persephone” Watson has infused pagan myths with a decidedly salvation perspective that puts an exciting philosophical twists on the most important trinity of them all; life, love and death. It is an original, fresh tale and yet as old as time. We loved every single page.

Ron, i know this is slightly off topic but i just couldn`t resist writing it. You know that new show with Patrick Stewart called 'Picard' (its not a bad show actually), well do you re-twat-er the picture they initially used to advertise the show for a couple of weeks before the first episode aired ?, if you dont, it was of Picard and his dog looking out at a stunning landscape presumably in-twat-ating that he was supposedly contemplating a phrase like, "What next in my journey through the universe ?", well, given that scenario and picture, i had this idea of a truly hilarious caption that could`ve and perhaps should`ve accompanied the image, it went something like this, with Picard saying: "Somewhere, out there in all that incredible desolation and wilderness is the truly unbelievable 17 year-old Pauline Hickey from 1985, it must now be my quest to venture forth into that remoteness and find her, and then to fuck her, bugger her, sodomize her, 69-her, spunk all over her, and...of course...OF COURSE...TIT-FUCK THE BIRD SENSELESS for 10 years non-stop, 24 hours-a-day, uninterrupted (and unload literally half-a-gallon of spunk all over those breathtakingly perfect tits every 5 minutes during the entire 10 year period, obviously). No geezer in the history of the world has ever been destined to achieve and fulfill such a noble or important mission, and when i find her (even if it takes 1000 years of searching) i shall say unto her, My dear, my cup runneth over with spunk, and she will then guzzle down the equivalent of 20 wads from my willy, and then the 10 years of non-stop sexual debauchery with THE most mind-bogglingly pheno-girl-al and astounding mega-titted lust-pot of all-time will finally and thankfully begin, i am charged by the goddess Athena herself to complete this mission and i must not offend or let down anyone on High Mount Olympus (although, admittedly i didn`t really need much coaxing to embark on THIS mission, obviously, nudge nudge, wink wink, grin grin, say no more, if you get my drift...COR...WOW...WEY-HEY...! ! !)". I still think thats one of my best Pauline Hickey related com-girl-ts Ron, i just wondered if you agreed ! ?. I hope it made you fall about laughing, thanks for reading.
