In the depths of Ukrainian classical literature, «Marko the Cursed» shines with a gothic glow, a work that emerges from the depths of folk beliefs and is masterfully embodied by the pen of Oleksa Storozhenko. The story revolves around Marko, a sinful and lazy Cossack, cast into the abyss of hell. But fate gives him a chance to redeem his sins — to save other Cossacks.
Storozhenko, drawing inspiration from folklore, leads the reader through horrifying settings inhabited by devils, witches, and powerful sorcerers. In his hands, the legend transforms into a true gothic masterpiece, filled with gruesome imagery and bloody scenes that stir the imagination and frighten the soul. Marko, an outcast raised on bird's blood, is doomed to wander the earth forever, punishment for his sins.
Graphic illustrations by contemporary artist Maria Khymynets complement this chilling novella, making it even more atmospheric and unforgettable.

«Marko the Cursed» is a journey into the dark recesses of the human soul, where horror intertwines with faith, and sin seeks redemption.
This is not a read for the faint of heart, but for those who seek to immerse themselves in the depths of Ukrainian literature and experience true gothic trepidation.
