Le Visage Vert no. 25
Congratulations to Xavier Legrad-Ferronnière and everyone else editing and writing for Le Visage Vert, which has just published its milestone twenty-fifth issue. Highlights include Michel Meurger continuing his historical exploration of werewolves; Norbert Gaulard introducing two fantastic tales by Antonio de Hoyos y Vinent (1885-1940), who is described as a sort of Iberian alter ego to Jean Lorrain. There follows a translation into French of Jessie Douglas Kerruish's "The Swaying Vision" (1915), and a previously unpublished text "La Porte" by the Belgian writer Guy Vaes (1927-2012), with a study of Vaes by Danny De Laet. Finally there are a couple of medieval legends written and illustrated by Albert Robidas (1848-1926). Subscribers receive a set of four cards (printed on each side) showing illustrations by for advertisements for a collection of stories by Antonio de Hoyos v Vinent.
Another recent publication by the folks at Le Visage Vert is a chapbook L'Animal Blanc (The White Animal) by Georg von der Gabalentz (1868-1940), translated from the German by Élisabeth Willenz, with illustrations by Stepan Ueding. "Das weisse Tier" is from Gabelentz's first collection of stories, published in 1904.
