Five Maidens on the Pentagram

by J. Manfred Weichsel

When a satanic wizard runs the insane asylum, nobody believes the inmates, even when they're sane.

Jonah is entirely normal in every respect but one: whenever he's frightened he turns into his evil alter ego, Maldeus.

When Jonah discovers Maldeus is working with the asylum doctor to sacrifice women on a giant pentagram, he's thrust into the middle of a diabolic plot involving occult magic, invisible people, and a perverted, sex-crazed blue demon! Will he keep his wits about him as he pretends to be Maldeus and stop the rise of Satan?

About the Author

J. Manfred Weichsel writes satires that fuse adventure, horror, science fiction, and fantasy into some of the most original transgressive literature being published today.

Weichsel began writing short fiction in 2016 with stories that have appeared in some of the biggest titles of the new pulp movement, such as Cirsova Magazine and the Planetary Anthology series.

When the pandemic hit, Weichsel was suddenly jobless, but—thanks to government handouts—making more than he had been when working. He decided to treat his situation as an opportunity, and began writing longer works and learning how to self-publish.

Now a fiercely independent author, J. Manfred Weichsel aims to fulfill the promise of self publishing with works ungoverned by the constraints of traditional publishing houses and the inhibitions of polite society.

Loved by some and hated by others, Weichsel’s funny, unconventional, often grotesque books inhabit a unique space in American literature and will be read, talked about, and debated for generations to come.
