This existentialist movement born short story tell the story of a young woman named Eve who decided to stay with his husband Pierre even if this last is deeply mentally sick( decision freely made even is against what everybody think is the good way is a major theme in existentialist literature). The interest for steampunker of this short story is than in the second part of the story (seem of the eye of Eve), the fantasms of Pierre are depicted like they are a reality. This fact transform this novel as a edwardian maupassant like realistic fanstastic novel. Flyings statues, a scratch made conjuration artefact and a gang lead by a man named the ''négre''(niger) are the many critter who inhabited the sick world of Éve and Pierre.

Someone read this novel? I surely recomend you.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''
