Pages From The Cthonique Library: The Five Wives of Spenger of Hencsh.

A delightful little romp about a wealthy merchant and his debauched household.  Spenger of Hencsh, a man of great wealth and immense political power, uses it to achieve the satiation of his immediate desires, including by having his uncle, a prominent Abbot, granting him a dispensation to marry more than once.  Spenger starts out bad, and gets worse, growing ever coarser and more spiritually wretched as things progress, his household becoming a den of vice and wicked schemes.  The tale ends with his death, and his family's utter ruin.

The book is highly suppressed for its perceived loose morals.

  1. Right. Taking another break. Hope no one minds. Things we'll be back on track in January.
