The Platinum Raven and other novellas is a paperback comprising a collection of Rohan Quine's four novellas The Platinum Raven, The Host in the Attic, Apricot Eyes and Hallucination in Hong Kong, each novella being also available by itself as an ebook. All four are literary fiction with elements of magical realism and a dusting of horror, celebrating the darkest and brightest possibilities of human imagination, personality and language.
The Platinum Raven is a triple convulsion whereby our heroine Raven escalates herself into the Chocolate Raven and then the Platinum Raven, from London to Dubai to the tower in the hills in the desert - then back down again, forever changed.
The Host in the Attic is a hologram of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, digitised and reframed in cinematic style, set in London's Docklands in a few years' time.
In Apricot Eyes, a cat-and-mouse pursuit through the New York City night involves a preacher, a psychic and a dominatrix, broadcast live on air - until a horror is unearthed, bringing two of them together and the third to a sticky end.
In Hallucination in Hong Kong, sliding from joy to nightmare and back, a plane-flight frames a journey into Jaymi's and Angel's polarised identities and perceptions, where past and present merge in an obsessive fantasy of love, death, horror and apocalyptic beauty.
