Riding high on the unexpected success of Suffer a Witch to Die I decided to dive right back into mid century ish pulp horror with House of Illusion At first it seemed like a good decisionJackie an intrepid young librarian desperate to get away from her mother’s meddling decides to spend the week with her eccentric and reclusive aunt This naturally only horrifies her mother Uncle Merlin was a stage magician and frittered away his life on strange passions and pursuits And Aunt Elma hasn’t been right since Merlin was killed by Cameron—his own assistant—right in their home Worse Cameron and his wife vanished as if into thin air Even if that was 21 years ago Aunt Elma has turned the estate into a guest house for indigent actors No reputable person would ever go to The RetreatThough The Retreat is definitely the sort of name given to an insane asylum in a horror movie Jackie is undisturbed When she arrives in the small town closest to The Retreat she finds no proper taxi service and must call on the good natured and good looking auto mechanic—David Stan—for a rideWhile he finishes up work on the engine of his truck he strongly but without theatrics tries to dissuade Jackie from going to The Retreat Naturally Jackie is still determinedWith a shrug he finishes up the engine“This is the most beautiful thing on earth a perfectly functioning engine It’s clean uiet efficient and faultless”Jackie could almost understand him but felt irritated at his smugness “Most beautiful You exaggerate Mr Stan Even among man made things What about paintings poetry sculture?”He screwed the engine cover on reached for some waste and wiped his hands “Next in order comes a windy hill on a sunny day then a cheetah then a symphony”At this point I wanted Jackie to forget about The Retreat and run off with David Stan She doesn’t and he soon drops her off at the gates of The Retreat where a female servant is waiting to show her through the maze to the house“The dark mannish face with its high prominent cheekbones—Slav peasant beast of burden?—turned toward her almost expressionless”Jackie up until now has seemed a kind generous woman This dehumanizing aside seemed so strange I had to pause and consider if I’d somehow misread her Up until this point though she’d only encountered other British folk’ and I was suddenly reminded that bigotry presents itself very differently across countries and decadesWith that bad taste lingering in my mouth Jackie enters The Retreat and the whole damn book falls apartThe actors are bland and boring and most of them don’t matter in the slightestThe attempts at horror and suspense—the parts of the book trying to make the house feel “haunted”—are so ham fisted so pointed that even I found them laughable Like at one point something ‘scary’ happened and I literally laughed out loudAnd the plot dear cod the plot I desperately wish I could somehow convey its sheer stupidity but in addition to being predictable and unnecessarily convoluted it’s surprisingly large Especially since most of it comes to life in the last 50 pages It goes from “Spooky I hear unaccounted for music” to “Well you see Aunt Elma is trying to murder everyone and burn down the house because she was jilted by Merlin’s assistant Cameron and desperately wanted to have a baby—which she couldn’t—and Merlin knocked up Cameron’s wife creating an heir that Elma didn’t want to compete with and oh my god Cameron and his family live in the walls as fugitives that’s why the house feels haunted Btw Cameron only killed Merlin in self defense but he did kidnap a boy who snuck into The Retreat so his daughter could eventually carry on the family line because sure”That’s all stupid sure But my brain had a completely different issue at this point Elma has been—for years—a horrible obsessive punitive murderous old bat singularly focused on retribution Yet she remembered to write her distant niece who she’s not seen for over a decade to wish her a happy birthday? And in that cordial gesture she went so far as to invite Jackie to visit?Sure That checks outOkay but when Jackie replies and says “I’d love to” why did Aunt Elma go along with it? She’s clearly busy planning murder—it’s not a great time for visits from largely unknown distant relatives She could easily put it offThe answer? Well Aunt Elma initially does try to put off Jackie’s visit but when Jackie mentions that she’s a librarian Aunt Elma warms up suddenly Within a few days of arriving Jackie is put to work cataloging the expansive library and the second she’s done Elma shops the list around and sells off the booksLiterally listing books reuires no special training and Elma has five indigent actors relying on her goodwill Just being like “Hey guys you pay no rent can you please catalog the books?” should do the trickTo be clear Elma didn’t invite Jackie over because she knew Jackie was a librarian and she knew she needed the library cataloged She invited Jackie over just because? And then it happened to work out that Jackie could do a thing that Elma knew needed doingJust fucking awful plotting If it weren’t for that line about wind on a mountain a cheetah and a symphony this would have been a 1 star bookAnyway my take away from House of Illusion is that when people you don’t really know or haven’t seen or talked to in ages invite you to come visit don’t Which luckily for me is my automatic response anywayPS Apparently House of Illusion is FauxFemFan and actually written by a man named Rex Dolphin Nicola Devon was a pen name of his Interestingly enough Jackie is rather convincingly written She’s not dull or over done If I hadn’t stumbled across the fact that Nicola Devon is a pen name I’d have easily believed that this were a work written by a womanI read old fantasy novels written by women authors in search of forgotten gems See at forfemfancom
