Absinthe a potent drink with seductive marketing and a dark history
The green fairy.
The provocateur of dreams and nightmares.
70% green liqueur with herbs such as fennel, anise, and the bitter leaves of Artemisia absinthium – aka wormwood
Oscar Wilde wrote, “What difference is there between a glass of absinthe and a sunset?”
Absinthe, the social lubricant of choice for Europeans in an era when industry was marching across virgin fields and making slaves of man, woman and child.
The wine crops had failed.
Murder followed the passing of the green menace beyond Jean Lanfray’s lips.
And what of the Cthulhu Mythos?
What conjurations have been enacted by mad men in the grip of wild absinthe hallucinations? Calls to the dark void, stirring the entangled web of particles that link dreamers to terrible minds beyond the Quantisphere.
Shrieking howls carried by the star winds.
No ordinary drink.
And so the words of H. P. Lovecraft wash back into our reality. Warping the imagination. Taking human minds through portals that appear only to those are ready to perceive them.
