About the Author

Very little is known about Medlar Lucan and Durian Gray. Since the scandal-ridden closure of their Edinburgh dining club, The Decadent, they have gone into silent, mysterious exile and are currently in Havana, living above a boxing academy. Flamboyant yet secretive, they once described themselves to a local newspaper reporter as 'collectors, aesthetes, gastronomes, scene-painters, lovers, exhibitionists and jewel worshippers at the Temple of the Extreme.' They are the authors of a quartet of books on decadence.

Alex Martin has published four children's novels and is the editor (with Robert Hill) of the four-volume Prentice Hall Introductions to Modern English Literature. His novel The General Interruptor introduced the world to Viktor Ubriakov's lost imaginary masterpiece La Cuisine erotique (St Petersburgh 1888). It was awarded the Betty Trask Prize.

Alex Martin and Jerome Fletcher have edited for Dedalus the decadence series.
