It’s not unlikely the original stories were intended for Fantasy Tales before it went to the wall. As a non-fantasy man i’m not sure i will ever be able to get along with something called The Star Weave of Snorgrud Sunbreath but delighted to find stories i’ve not previously read from Michael Marshall Smith, David Riley, Brian Mooney and Ramsey Campbell among others.

Blurb:

Every aspect of the first edition of the Dedalus Book of Decadence (Moral Ruins) received praise, from the cover (Times Higher Education Supplement), the introduction (The Independent), the choice of stories (City Limits), to the whole book (Time Out).
It was a critical and commercial success, which featured in the Alternative Bestsellers List.
A few comments about the first edition:
“The Dedalus Book of Decadence looks south to sample the essence of fine French decadent writing. It succeeds in delivering a range of writers either searching vigorously for the thrill of a healthy crime or lamenting their impuissance from a sickly stupor”.
Andrew St. George in the Independent.
“an invaluable sampler of spleen, everything from Baudelaire and Rimbaud to Dowson and Flecker. Let’s hear it for luxe, calme et volupte”
Anne Billson in Time Out
Also available from Brian Stableford: The Second Dedalus Book of Decadence: the Black Feast and The Dedalus Book of British Fantasy: the 19th Century.
