254 pages. Collects three long decadent tales, ''Matinee in Baku'' (a revision of ''Mad Matinee In Baku'' which had appeared earlier in 2010 in a 100-copy limited hardcover), The Pit-Crypts Of Kish''and ''The Sanatorium At Chakhirshirincelo'', plus a short poem ''Sigh For A Song Unsung'': 260 copies printed.

''Land of liminality and the illusions of the east, of flammiferous spirituality and earth-spewn fires, caught within the claw of communism. The Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan. Spectral retribution for attempted unmentionable sin in the Old City of Baku; the horror of a millennial burial pit in an abandoned church; sub-human linkages from dead aeons that brood beneath a mountain cave near Iran: offering apotropaic transmutations of carnality into a vehicle for redemption - but not invariably. Azerbaijan Tales consists of three decadent novellas by an imaginative author of the wandering macabre. Two are new and previously unpublished while an earlier incarnation of the third appeared as a rare, very limited edition''.
