Homunculus (signed/slipcased)., Blaylock,  James P.
1 Blaylock, James P.Homunculus (signed/slipcased). 04615
Morrigan Publications: Bath. 1988.
First hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
First published as an Ace paperback original in 1986. Winner of the 1986 Philip K. Dick Award for best novel. Introduction by Keith Roberts. LIMITED EDITION: 300 numbered slipcased hardcover copies signed by Blaylock, Keith Roberts, and artist Ferret. This issue adds ''A Postscript to Homunculus'' by William Hastings (a Blaylock pseudonym) and ''A Note on Mr. Hastings' Postscript'' by Blaylock (both not present in the trade hardcover).

''his books feature grotesques and eccentrics viewed with whimsical affection. These people often have crotchets and obsessions, and live in mutable worlds subject to curiosities and wonders whose explications -- while sometimes earnestly scientific -- are seen as hopelessly inadequate in the face of their absolute strangeness. The events of his books fall into odd patterns rather than linear plots, though the later works have a stronger narrative drive. HOMUNCULUS, a kind of prequel to The Digging Leviathan, is set in a Dickensian 19th-century London, and likewise features the spirit of scientific or alchemical inquiry, along with space vehicles, zombies and the possibility of immortality through essence of carp'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).

The Magic Spectacles (signed/limited slipcased)., Blaylock,  James P.
3 Blaylock, James P.The Magic Spectacles (signed/limited slipcased). 04494
Morrigan Publications: Bath. 1991.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Young adult sf/fantasy novel. Afterword by Lewis Shiner (only available in this deluxe edition). LIMITED EDITION: 250 numbered hardcover copies signed by the author, Lew Shiner and artist Ferret and slipcased.

''a children's book, containing a magic window, an alternate world and goblins, is less successfully childlike than some of his work for adults. It may be that the author's unquenchable relish for sheer oddity will inhibit his artistic growth, but meanwhile he is among the most enjoyable genre writers to have emerged from the 1980s'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).

Morrigan Publications: Bath. 1989.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel. Introduction by John Shirley and postscript by Richard Kadrey.

''there have been pastiches of Hunter S Thompson before. One personal favourite was ALLIGATOR ALLEY, a thoroughly deranged 1989 novel by Mink Mole and Dr. Adder (Ferret and K.W. Jeter in disguise). Unfortunately Mink Mole wrote the biggest chunks and Dr. Adder wrote the best chunks. This made it very uneven but itís enormous fun'' (Jim Steel).

''Jeter's is one of the most impressive bodies of work in my field today. Sometimes reminiscent of noir fiction but far darker, oppressively intense and hallucinatory vivid, deeply felt and unflinchingly honest, this book is what I believe contemporary horror fiction should be'' (Ramsey Campbell). ''California's climate was once perfect but now the people look like skeletons, walking across the barren, gray land with haunted eyes and hopeless faces ruled by monstrous masters in a reign of hideous cruelty and nightmare terror''.

''It was the End of Summer of the year 2035. The Global Village that was the World was ruled by a Kangaroo Court of Compassionate Aldermen who ordered assassinations when it was deemed to be for the common good. As a sign of their openness, they were always experimenting to find new ways of looking at the World. Most of these experiments would fail; some of them would succeed to an extent; and others would succeed only to well, and so would have to be crushed in the shell for the good of the World.''
