Summary
A mix of gothic elements, romance and SF, this disjointed novel is a mishmash of stories set in different time frames, loosely linked by the two characters of the title-the Centenarian father and his illegitimate son Tullius, or General Beringheld. The monstrous, immortal father-who sustains his powers by extracting the life-essence from young peoplei̮s the novel's central figure, but Tullius's diaries form the main story
