1930. Salome is the second in three important fantasy novels that were best sellers in their day; a sweeping Decadent epic trilogy consisting of My First Two Thousand Years: The Autobiography of the Wandering Jew; Salome: The Wandering Jewess; and The Invincible Adam. In this daring novel, Salome herself tells of her many loves, of her bold experiments and of the husbands and handmaidens whose lives she shaped over the past two thousand years. While Viereck's works are now considered classics, for many years he was persona non grata in the publishing world and with the public alike due to his having been an outspoken Nazi sympathizer during WWII.

In der Tradition von Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Scheerbart und E.T.A Hoffmann verwischt Meyrinks Prosa die Grenzen zwischen Traum und Realität und zeigt, dass das Phantastische seinen Platz in der Hochliteratur verdient. In Der Golem lässt Meyrink die alte Prager Legende vom künstlich aus Lehm erschaffenen Menschen aufleben. Der Protagonist Athanasius Pernath begegnet der Gestalt im Traum und wird seitdem von Halluzinationen und Wahnvorstellungen heimgesucht...

"It is a remarkably interesting idea to present the pageant of the world as it unfolded before the yes of the same man during two thousand years. Also, to keep him a young man instead of a doddering gray-beard. It is like reading a series of entrancing short stories with the added interest of logical sequence. Your erudition is amazing, and it is presented in a manner that lures one on and on, as well as inducing the pleasant belief that one is learning something really worth while." -- Gertrude Atherton

"Ich rate Euch, Gevatter, lasst mich auf Eu'r Schild keinen goldenen Engel, sondern einen roten Löwen malen; ich bin mal dran gewöhnt, und Ihr werdet sehen, wenn ich Euch auch einen goldenen Engel male, so wird er doch wie ein roter Löwe aussehn." Diese Worte eines ehrsamen Kunstgenossen soll gegenwärtiges Buch an der Stirne tragen, da sie jedem Vorwurf, der sich dagegen auffinden ließe, im Voraus und ganz eingeständig begegnen. Damit alles gesagt sei, erwähne ich zugleich, dass dieses Buch, mit geringen Ausnahmen, im Sommer und Herbst 1831 geschrieben worden, zu einer Zeit, wo ich mich meistens mit den Kartons zu künftigen roten Löwen beschäftigte. Um mich her war damals viel Gebrülle und Störnis jeder Art ...
