Hardcover.
Collects ten stories: 336 pages. Limited to 350 copies. PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED AND DATED IN 2010 TO A FELLOW UK WEIRD FICTION WRITER.

''the house of literary Romanticism has fallen into sad disrepair. Through its dusty passages are to be heard only the muffled, shivering voices of its ghosts, like the last lingering echoes of some forgotten passion in a lunatic asylum. It has been said that, in the grounds of this ruin, was a hothouse where Romanticism showed its last, grotesque bloom in the form of H. P. Lovecraft, since when the grey desolation of realism has swept over all in a fungoid blight. And yet, there remains a kind of life here, perhaps stranger still than previous blooms, in a weedy and overgrown flowerbed, under the name of Quentin S. Crisp. All God’s Angels, Beware!, the fourth collection of fiction from the contemporary British master of dementia, gathers together for the first time ten examples of Crisp’s own unique species of decayed Romanticism''.

PS Publishing: Harrogate. 2007.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Short story collection: seven page introduction by Kim Stanley Robinson. LIMITED EDITION: 700 hardcover copies published in total, of which this is one of 200 numbered copies signed by the author and Robinson, and slipcased.

''the author returns to the alternate America of his acclaimed 2004 novel The Rebel: An Imagined Life of James Dean. In that book, Dean, the most promising actor of his time, survived his car crash in 1955, and lived on, making great movies and interacting with some of the foremost personalities of the Fifties and Sixties while drifting towards a strange political destiny in lockstep with Robert Kennedy. Now, PROMISED LAND expands on that premise, offering brilliant insights into Dean, the Kennedys, and others, both as they were and as they might have been. In this volume's dexterously interlinked stories and novellas, we come to understand Marilyn Monroe more vividly than ever before - her inner conflicts, her indecision between lovers and lifestyles, between life and death. We witness the evolution of Elvis Presley from a home-grown Memphis boy to a jaded superstar, the deaths of those closest to him fuelling his alienation from his better nature. We glimpse the paradoxical moral constitution of Bobby Kennedy, crusading idealist yet capable of deep cynicism and infidelity. We come to know the wheedling eloquence of Jack Kerouac, and the bizarre psychology of William Burroughs. And connecting them all, in chains of passionate friendship and enigmatic karmic sympathy, is the figure of Jimmy Dean, who believes his second chance at existence is a trust from God, but who struggles to uncover what exactly that means...Promised Land is a superb meditation on fame, love, and fate, replete with evocative dialogue, rich characterization, and dazzling prose poetry''.

SF novella. Introduction by Michael Swanwick. From a total printing of 726 hardcover copies, this is one of 500 numbered copies (as issued without dustjacket) signed by the author.

''Stephen is a retired Nazi hunter, divorced yet living happily enough on his ranch on the fringe of the Amazon jungle. But when Brazilian police unearth the alleged remains of the detested Auschwitz camp doctor, Josef Mengele, Stephen's life is immediately and traumatically transformed. At the grave site, he falls suddenly ill, and the diagnosis is terminal cancer; a hideous skin disease adds to his woes; and the Indian couple working at the ranch soon hint that Stephen's unresolved relationship with Mengele is the moral and spiritual core of a syndrome only superficially physical. For Stephen as a boy was a prisoner at Auschwitz, a subject of Mengele's horrifying medical experiments; his twin brother and his mother died there at Mengele's hands; survivor's guilt and mortal hatred remain unassuaged after the Doctor's peaceful death in exile. Something must be done. And so Stephen, accompanied by his strangely quiet and also afflicted Indian ranch foreman, Genaro, sets out to consult a rumoured miracle-working Doctor in a remote jungled region of Brazil. The pilgrimage is arduous and hallucinatory at once; and Stephen must ready body and soul to confront his darkest, most persistent hopes and fears''.

''not all of his own novels are easily treated as sf, though all his work tends to exhibit a exuberant opportunism about genre-switching; but some are of explicitly sf interest. Elements of spoof and caricature are laced through the gonzo erotica of A Mouthful of Tongues: Her Totipotent Tropicanalia (2002), but the near future world of the tale is presented with very considerable intensity, as a sexually beleaguered woman is transformed - perhaps as the subject of a biological engineering project - into something like an omnivorous goddess in an Alternate History version of Brazil; and FUZZY DICE (2003) carries its inept protagonist through a variety of Parallel Worlds structured in accordance with various mathematical and cosmological premises: one a world prior to the Big Bang; another a kind of artefactual cellular automaton, and so forth. The end result evokes both Edwin A Abbott and Robert Sheckley, as well as Rudy Rucker, who wrote the introduction'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2003.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The author's last major work, unpublished till now: edited by S. T. Joshi.

''in this powerful and moving novel, written in 1955, a futuroscope--a device that allows a viewer to see into the near or distant future--reveals an awful fate for humanity: a nuclear holocaust has destroyed nearly all human life on the planet. The great city of London is now merely an immense crater, filled in with water from the Thames. The pitiful remnants of humanity have been reduced to a Stone Age existence. The narrator, obsessively looking through the futuroscope, focuses upon the plight of a single family in their struggles to survive and fend off the many enemies, both animal and human, that surround them. When one of their number is kidnapped by a band of gypsies, we can only wonder at her fate in this brave new world of the distant future. Gripping, horrifying, touching, and fascinating, The Pleasures of a Futuroscope shows that Lord Dunsany had retained his literary powers undiminished to the end of his life''.

Hardcover.
The author's first book. Collects fifteen strange stories: 268 pages. Limited to 300 (unnumbered) hardcover copies.

''The fifteen strange stories that comprise this stunning debut collection range over the fantastic, the supernatural and the psychological. In ‘An Old Tale’, a young ballet student discovers hope beyond the barriers of death. ‘The Music’ tells of a violinist who must face the ghosts of his past; and those ghosts are brought to life in ‘The Beginning’. In ‘Gloria and the Selchie’ a modern Irish girl discovers that the stories her old granny told her are all too true, while in ‘The Lighthouse’, a retired sea captain falls in love. ‘What Dreams May Come’ moves the scene to modern day Manhattan, as an advertising executive is haunted by dreams of a giant raptor. In ‘Sanity’, the boundary between delusion and reality becomes a battlefield between a patient and her therapist. ‘Rolf’ takes the reader to the world of the medieval mason, and a strange apprenticeship. ‘The Change’ concerns the legend of the were-wolf from an unusual point of view, and in ‘The Kelpie’, a novice mage learns the true extent of her powers''.

Hardcover.
Fantasy novella.

''in the fictitious country of Canada the arts scene is ruled by technocrats who thrive in a secret, nepotistic society of granting agencies, bursaries, awards and peer review boards, all designed to permit self-proclaimed artists to survive without an audience. In Revolvo, self-proclaimed ''hack genre writer'' Steven Erikson provides a daring expose of creative skullduggery in the wilds of a country suffering an interminable identity crisis. The names of plenty of real people have been changed and all specific details of the setting have been messed with, so if anyone guesses a certain prairie city in the middle Canada, where the author used to live, well, you'd be plain wrong. Besides, it was a long time ago and his memory is not so good''

SF novel: introduction by Robert Holdstock. LIMITED SLIPCASED EDITION: from a total printing of 700 hardcovers printed (of which 500 were unsigned trade hardcover) this is one of 200 numbered copies signed by both authors and slipcased.

''Omega: an apocalyptic rumour from the Eastern Front. Omega: something that will alter all the strategic calculations of the Earth's great military blocs. Omega: the code name for a weapon that may well bring doomsday with it. But if Omega is indeed the agent that will destroy the world, that world is not our own. For this is a timeline in which World War Two never truly ended: a timeline in which Hitler died in a plane crash, Britain joined Germany in its battle against Communist Russia, and the present is an age of intermittent, but deadly, armed conflict between the USSR, the European Alliance, and the USA. The frontier regions are radioactive wastelands, nuclear winter threatens catastrophe, global confrontation could erupt again any time - and that's before Omega is taken into account...This is the reality experienced by Owen Meredith when an accident forces his consciousness from the England we know into the mind of his cognate self in that other darker, Europe.Switching back and forth between being plain Owen Meredith and troubled Major Owain Maredudd, Owen is faced not only with a Cold War going Hot, but with a deep crisis of identity. Who is he? Whose twisted destiny is he treading? Did the ordinary domestic life he remembers ever even take place? Perhaps the universe of Owain and Omega is merely a symptom of mental illness - but if so, why is it so urgently tangible?''

First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Weird/occult novella. Limited to 100 numbered hardcover copies only.

''America has disappeared. Resources at the US Embassy in Copenhagen are a little stretched, and the extraordinary circumstances therefore require extraordinary measures, even if it means drawing upon the services of the world’s second greatest living detective - a disillusioned American expatriate called Mr. Denmark who is currently living in Copenhagen. Meanwhile, a travel writer called Mr. Sweden finds himself in a precarious position as the very subject matter of his next travel book seems to have disappeared. Copenhagen is gripped by a deep sense of unease. Bookshops and countries are disappearing, animals wearing Bowler hats are overrunning the city, the central immigration services have been beleaguered by tuxedo wearing penguins- infernal forces might be at work. And then there is that walking, talking Mauser-toting cat who might or might not be in cahoots with the Execrate Himself. A superlative homage to Mihkail Bulgakov in which the weird story meets detective fiction, the surrealism of past European masters and the allegory of dissident writers to create a geopolitical occult work to end all politics''.
