GREAT GORME by Colleen Cairns


Email this review


Modified gothic witchcraft in which Ceil Ellison, who reads both the ouija board and R. D. Laing, can't quite explain those periods of dissociation after she arrives on a Caribbean island to help attractive Rene, the Master of Gorme, with his son. His wife had died but now a gree-gree shrieks in the trees and Ceil has attacks of vertigo later related to the kola nutmeg. The story's somewhat helter-skelter what with all the aromatic diversification but the tone is modem. Juju or jujube, a little of both.
