While teaching in the Turkish coastal city of Antalya, Braze and Mephare meet and become attracted to each other. So begins a love story that takes a disastrous turn when Braze finds a locket while trying to unravel the mystery of a lost archeologist. He gives the locket to Mephare only to search that they have now both become possessed by the demon Ashezma Daeva who interacts with the mortal globe through the Priest of Orpagus. Throughout the rest of the book the author takes the reader through the horrific aftermath. He writes of the young lovers decent into hell - entrapped by the will of Ashezma Daeva - with skill and confidence. His characters are wonderfully drawn and his descriptions of the horrors Braze and Mephare experience are brutally stunning. P. C. Darkcliff is an confident storyteller whose writing carries the reader along at a breakneck pace. He can not only imagine a terrific story, he had the writing ability to create reading it extremely entertaining. Word has it that we can expect a fresh book by P. C. Darkcliff in 2020. I can't wait.
This book is a unbelievable combination of dark fantasy and supernatural struggle. The setting is vibrant, teeming with life and local color. The vivid imagery/visuals the protagonist experiences adds another layer of suspense that makes it all the more interesting. This novel shows us deep, three dimensional characters undergoing major changes while keeping the story going. It's a quick and entertaining read. Well worth your time. Enjoy!
As I said in the title, this second effort by P.C. Darkcliff is a phenomenal, gripping novel that builds a globe both vast and elemental, dealing with the topics of corruption of the soul, of demons and also of piety. I am sure this won't be the latest time I read this book. It will have a unique put on my shelf for a lot of years to come, and I am eager to read more from this author in the future!
P.C. Darkcliff takes his readers down a fast-paced unbelievable adventure, in his second novel, The Priest of Orpagus. This book is more complex and told from the point of view of multiple characters, mostly between the protagonists, Braze Wilson and Mehpare Eroglu. Our two heroes are soon cursed by the demon, Ashezma Daeva, leading them both to utter depravity and terrifying actions. I really felt for Mehpare who despite her pious upbringing becomes sexually exploited by a cult in Cyprus. I won’t say more than that other, than there were several surprising twists and turns throughout the , I tend to be biased when it comes to Darkcliff’s novels and favor the female characters. The same was the case in this piece; I loved all the main and side characters like Kerry, a wise old woman who wars the demon along with Braze, and a comic figure nicknamed Fat-Ma. I also liked the antagonists in the story; I loved Detective Ahmet who was hellbent on making Braze for his possession induced crime. Also, I thought the ending had amazing closure and tied loose ends beautifully, far better than his debut novel. I was especially glad to see the protagonists vindicate themselves, to a degree, even if that vindication came at a high cost. This work is definitely dark and has a lot of tragedies, some of them surprising. Overall, I give this novel 5 stars. If you like dark fantasies, this is definitely the novel for you.
I just finished reading The Priest of Orpagus by P.C. Darkcliff and just like his other book Deception of the Damned, The Priest of Orpagus is a captivating and uniquely original novel. P.C. Has the enviable ability to hook a reader from the very beginning of his novels and deliver tales that are exciting and at times frightening. In The Priest of Orpagus he weaves a tale that is a combination of fantasy, horror and modern mythology. The evil hero Ashemza, a demon that ensnares its victims by invading their sleep, is unlike any other I’ve read. The main characters, Braze and Mehpare, as well as the secondary characters in this story, are well drawn and elicit sympathy and sustained tension. I won’t give away who or what The priest of Orpagus is, but be prepared to search yourself thinking about him/it even after you’ve set the book aside. This novel, like Deception of the Damned, is rich in info and descriptions of locales that span various parts of the world as well as the otherworldly. I highly recommend this book.(and while you’re at it also consider Deception of the Damned).
With all the hoopla surrounding Bradley's potential run at the presidency, this book special insight from a non-politics perspective. It chronicles the latest few weeks of a Knick's season, and all the emotion that comes with it. Also, Bradley provides commentary on a dozens of subjects which are still very relevant... i.e. the formation of the NBA Player's Association. The book reads very well, and there is interesting background coverage of Bradley's teammates, a lot of of whom are well-known today. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone - from sports buff to the just curious. It is awesome!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written, descriptive and had compelling characters. P.C.Darkcliff delved into the deepest fibers of each character, extracting their purest traits, and then had them commit horrible happenings through the work of a curse. There's a chaste girl, a kind man, a frightening priest and a monster, all coming together at the edge of the sea. It was a struggle of morality, superstition and the supernatural. I give it a thumbs up!
A true shame the reviews are so sparse on this selection. I discovered Nitin Sawhney's melody while in Sri Lanka and actively looked for this gem of an album on a road in Thailand - fortunately it was plentiful there - guess they knew a amazing thing when they heard it. I listened to this album consistently for years before loosing it and rediscovering it years later. What a blessing!To be fair, if you are not familiar with trip hop, Goa, or more traditional Indian music, you may have some difficulty grasping this album at first (or maybe not). I was relatively familiar was those genres when I first acquired this attractive piece of work, and there were still some tracks that took some time to come to appreciate. But come to appreciate the full work of this album I is a amazing album to listen to in a more 'spiritual' or 'meditative' state of mind. Maybe with headphones turned up loud. Or chillin on the couch after a phatty bowl. Or in the bathtub. To really have fun Nitin Sawhney's Displaces the Priest you have to set the mood. Light some candles and foreplay with your lover, it has an erotic nature too."Displace the Priest" song #5 is in my top 10 songs of all time.If my review sounds agreeable with you, than you don't need any more encouragement. Enjoy!
It's been a long time since Movie Noir of the Week first discussed Woman on the Run. At the time the movie was just place out on a public domain DVD label. Through the haze and scratchy audio it was clear that the movie is just excellent. The highly enjoyable crime movie and sometimes travelogue of 40s San Francisco is irresistible. True, most remember Ann Sheridan shedding her glamorous persona or the dogged cop stuck with the dog (Robert Keith). But what I've really grown to appreciate is Dennis O'Keefe. He plays a machine-gun talking reporter rat-tat-tatting his lines as he tails Sheridan. O'Keefe was from a present biz family. His parents were a duo in a vaudeville act that would frequently travel to Los Angeles. By the time O'Keefe was 16 the experienced vaudevillian himself was writing for the "Our Gang" series -- penning scripts or just coming up with gags. When not writing, he was an additional and even a sometimes stunt man in countless movies -- including a bit part in The Marx Brothers Duck Soup at the age of 25. But he struggled to create a success of himself. Legend has it, Clark Gable noticed the young additional while making Saratoga and ordered a screen test. By 1938, the bit-part actor was now in credited roles and would have fun a healthy career in movie in front of the camera. But O'Keefe probably would have been just fine as a writer. The 1938 movie The Child Comes Back writer Don Miller in "B" Movies: An Informal Survey of the American Low-Budget Movie 1933-1945 called the movie "fast, funny, studiously avoided the formula cliches peculiar to movies around fights... the story, by the way, is by E.J. Flanagan, who at the time was a struggling bit player. Flanagan hit the jackpot later... when he became Dennis O'Keefe." Just as O'Keefe was making a name as an actor. According to his 1968 obituary in the NY Times, O'Keefe never stopped writing during his acting days. While playing the lead in the amazing T-Men, he worked on the script with John C. Higgins. It's not surprising that none of his writing for Our Gang, The Child Comes Back and T-Men are noted on his IMDB page. He, like so a lot of other jack-of-all-trades, did every job in the business but is only really remembered today for his work in front of the camera. His acting was worth remembering, though. His notable movies in the movie noir globe contain The Leopard Man, T-Men, Raw Deal, The Company She Keeps and Abandoned. But you'd be crazy to forget his comedic roles in Brewster's Millions, The Affairs of Jimmy Valentine and Topper Returns. I really have fun him in Woman on the Run. Check out the method O'Keefe pronounces "Po-leece" during a chat in Chinatown, or his crack about a female cop tailing them "Say, did you obtain a load of that female impersonator following you?" I'm convinced that O'Keefe had a hand in polishing his lines in Woman on the Run. He may be second banana in the film, but he certainly holds his own.
Before I purchased "Displacing the Priest," I owned Sawhney's "Prophesy." Being one of the first concept albums I have purchased, Nitin Sawhney is the only artist I know who makes an pure effort to capture real emotions for his ideologys that are incorporated into his music. "Displacing the Priest," being one of his earlier works, has a style that is not yet definite. This album could be described as a collection of various asian styles mixed into one album. If you love Nitin Sahnwey, you will love this album, but it isn't related to his later works, where his style of melody is more defined.
A story that takes you quickly to the dark side in a gripping tale of two people caught in a web not of their own devices. Vivid imagery and imaginative storytelling lets you experience the local roads and breathe the salt air as you swelter with Braze, hoping he makes his appointment. You feel for Mehpare as she is shyly attracted to Braze which makes the remainder of her experience something you won’t forget. You will laugh and cry and be pleasantly appalled. P. C. Darkcliff did an perfect job weaving life and personality into his characters so that you truly care what happens to them and have to hold turning those pages to search out. Don’t miss this one. It’s a amazing read!
Bill Bradley's Life on the Run is an insightful and thoughtful acc of what it was like to be a professional basketball player in the mid-1970s. Bradley writes about a bygone era--one where all the players weren't multimillionaires, squads traveled commercial, there was no ESPN and media oversaturation and players roomed together. While some things have changed since the book was published nearly 35 years ago, a lot of of the things are the adley, a star at Princeton, chose to attend Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar for two years before joining the Fresh York Knicks in the NBA. He thought he wouldn't play professionally, but he realized he missed the android game while at adley was the symbol of the Christian, scholar/athlete, but he says much of that photo was overblown. "I studied, practiced and went to church, but the media exaggerated each facet of my life until expectations were such that I could never fulfill. The greater the acclaim, the more certain it was that the public appetite could never be satisfied. The only method out, I thought, was to reject basketball and become a lawyer or businessman."Bradley says being a professional athlete is a mixed blessing. He shows both sides of the coin in his book. He tells how players spend their days (and yes it's boring much of the time), how they cope with physical exertion, travel and constant aches and pains. He provides interesting profiles of his teammates and says that on a lot of squads friendship is overblown and even hypocritical.Unlike most players today, Bradley was obsessed with squad basketball and not individual statistics. "I do not depend on the outside for recognition," writes Bradley. "The press and public approval mean small to me. What is necessary is my own judgment as to whether the squad plays according to my estimate of how an ideal squad should."The 1970 championship Knicks vindicated Bradley's concept and approach to the game."Success of the group assures the success of the individual," he writes, "but not the other method around."It's truly a pleasure to rub shoulders with Bradley and his Knick teammates for 230 pages.
I didn't begin following the NBA until 2010 or so. While I'm sure the life of an NBA player has changed a lot between when Bill Bradley played and now, a lot remains the same: the traveling, treatment from fans, card android games on planes, and 's also interesting to obtain a glimpse into a various era of the NBA, and think about how that has developed into today's era. If you're a fan of the NBA, I recommend this book.
I didn't know what too expect with this book.I had picked it up on a whim. I'm a "slice of life" type of guy and I thought it would be informative. Being from Fresh Jersey, I've been familiar with Bradley's pro career and his governmental one. I've always ad.tired e book was informative. It gave me insights into what a pro athlete experiences.What I didn't expect was that it would be a truly enjoyable read. Bradley's observations and comments about the globe around him, to me, we're the cherry on top of the sundae. They filled in the picture and brought me back to those years.I found it highly entertaining.
This book was both enjoying and informative. If your a basketball fan of the late sixties and seventies you will have fun this book. I'm sure todays players would have a completely various lifestyle than their predecessors, but Bill gives you a picture of his day and insight into his cast of characters/teammates. I enjoyed this book.
