The DANNY Quadrilogy by Chancery Stone


"...a triumph, a crackerjack narrative with all the revelations I craved..."

THE DANNY QUADRILOGY is a huge stylistic achievement, a Jacobean drama on an epic scale, reaching into realms far darker than anything ever dreamt of in Shakespeare's philosophy. It belongs more firmly in the shadowy corridors of John Ford, the secret rooms of Christopher Marlowe, the feral imagination of John Webster - in short, in a place where gouging out eyes with steel spikes and unwittingly fucking your sister are commonplace tragedies.

For modern audiences, however, it may be imagined more easily as film noir, a long running soap opera from the dark side, something that HBO might commission as a creative pièce de résistance designed to out-swear Deadwood, out-abuse OZ and out-rape Rome.

It is the home of supernaturally compelling characters, blessed with the phallocentric charisma of sexed-up animals, goats in human form, satyrs. They act out every sick fantasy in graphic detail, strutting their sex, violence, perversion and addiction as if they were proud of it.

It is beyond good and evil, it is simply necessary.
