Three fantastic novels:
Freely inspired by one of the most beautiful and least-known stories of H.P. Lovecraft (The Pickman model), Carnival is set in a gloomy and decadent Venice. A few days from the beginning of the Carnival, the triumph of Josef, a painter who has finally achieved success after being ignored for years due to monstrous creatures populating his paintings, is celebrating. A success largely due to the beautiful Leontine, one of the most popular models in the world, who agreed to pose for him. Obscene, cursed paintings, in which she has sex with those creatures. During the last visit to the painter’s studio, Leontine finds a photograph depicting one of the monsters painted in the paintings. Initially skeptical about its authenticity, she soon finds out that this is not a fake one. Something scary lies in the lagoon, something old, forgotten. A secret secured for millennia is about to be unveiled, inhuman beings will soon walk among us. The Carnival will only be the beginning of an endless nightmare.
The Eighth Node
Walter is rich, gay and lives a dissolute life. Walter is a serial killer who attracts naive young men into his home, and then he kills them. Luca is a student. Young, handsome and in love. Luca is the first of Walter’s victims. He had gone on a date, had entered his home, to be tortured and murdered. All of this had occurred in the seventh node. But there’s another life, another time, another node. The eighth node. In the eighth node, none of this took place. Luca had never gone on that date. He’s still alive, and Walter didn’t become an assassin. Not yet, at least. Somebody wants this to happen. They’re prepared to undertake any necessary action, even the unthinkable, to make it happen. They want to force Walter to kill Luca. In this sick game, the roles can switch around; the victim can become a murderer, no one is innocent. A breathtaking thriller, without respite, that will surprise you. An unusual love story that goes above and beyond the laws of time and space.
I Am Not Here

In a distant time, she managed to annul herself by disappearing from the sight of men and sinking into oblivion. When the boy gets trapped, near facing death, she intervenes and saves him. It’s something she’d never done before, that which disturbs her. Besides that, she cannot get away from him. Since it’s something she has never felt before, it remains unknown to her. The boy is fascinated by her invisible presence and is determined to exploit her incredible abilities for his own interests. Without anyone’s intention, however, something impossible goes wrong. As he tries to find out who the girl is, the girl’s past slowly but forcedly comes to light. Their fragile relationship is put to the test each waking day until there is nothing to hide and they have to make a tough decision on whether to accept it or not.
