A Haunting Beauty: Stories Of The Macabre., Birkin,  Charles
1 Birkin, CharlesA Haunting Beauty: Stories Of The Macabre. 04073
Midnight House: Seattle, CA. 2000.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Collects 13 weird/supernatural stories, with a five page preface by Mike Ashley, and four page introduction from the author. 450 numbered hardcover copies printed.

''In the 1960's one author was almost solely responsible for keeping the horror genre alive in Britain, Sir Charles Birkin. In the years from 1964 to 1971 the author produced a string of powerful collections including The Kiss of Death, Spawn of Satan, and The Smell of Evil. In the early 1980's the author and editor Mike Ashley undertook the preparation of a retrospective showcase of the author's work. Efforts to market the volume were curtailed by Birkin's death in 1986 and the collection, A Haunting Beauty has remained lost -- until now. With a special introduction by Sir Charles Birkin nearly two decades after the author and editor began work on it. In this volume the full range and diversity of the author's work is demonstrated by tales that run the gamut from the eerie supernatural thriller ''Ballet Negre'' to the poignant ghostly tale ''Little Boy Blue'' and the grotesqueries of ''Lords of the Refuge''. Also included are a pair of fine examples of stories based on the author's war-time experiences, ''The Mouse Hole'' and a story that has to rank as a masterpiece, ''Waiting for Trains''. While best-known for his disturbing tales of psychological horror, Birkin was also adept at the supernatural tale of terror as is amply demonstrated by this collection''.

The Idol Of The Flies And Other Stories., Rice,  Jane
2 Rice, JaneThe Idol Of The Flies And Other Stories. 11651
Midnight House: Seattle, CA. 2003.
First edition (& 1st printing).
372-page retrospective of Jane Rice's sixty-year career in weird fiction: introduction and afterword by editors Stefan Dziemianowicz and Jim Rockhill respectively. 500 numbered copies printed.

''from her earliest stories for John Campbell's Unknown Worlds, through the 1950's tales written for Charm and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science-Fiction, to the recent novelette ''The Sixth Dog'', all of Ms. Rice's macabre fiction is collected in this book. Editors Stefan Dziemianowicz and Jim Rockhill have done a splendid job of tracking down stories from a wide variety of sources. Ms. Rice herself did revisions on several pieces to restore previously excised supernatural elements. Additionally, rrumour had long been rampant of ''missing'' Jane Rice stories written for Campell's Unknown Worlds and these have also been tracked down by the editors and now represent the author's preferred version''.

Midnight House: Seattle, CA. 2002.
First edition thus (& 1st printing).
20-page introduction and essay on Ryan by Dwayne Olson entitled Honor, Sadism And Dysfunction: The Dark, Demented World Of R. R. Ryan. Originally published in 1939, the author is credited with several of the most compelling and over-the-top novels in the horror genre. The only author with three entries on Karl Edward Wagner's list of the 39 best horror novels of all time, Ryan's work has been known to only a few devotees: this novel is a descent into madness, perversion, and the supernatural like no other, one of the most deeply disturbing works to ever appear in the genre.
