First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Introduction by Philip Jose Farmer: cover art by Alan M. Clark. 500 numbered copies signed by the author, artist and Philip Jose Farmer.

''when a UFO crash-lands in Elderton, Illinois, which reporter should The Astonished Eye, one of the country's most infamous tabloid newspapers, send to investiate? Why, Ben Savitch, of course! After all, he was born in this backwater town and that might just give him the edge when it comes to finding out the truth. And he might finally realize a shot-glass of fame and meaning in his otherwise lacklustre career. But what starts as a search for the perfect Eye story quickly transforms into something more momentous than Savitch ever could have imagined. The mystery of a stranded extrterrestrial pales in comparison to the powerful yet fragile magic that already exists in Elderton: Almo Parrish can infallibly predict the first autumn leaf to fall each year, and believes he is the last surviving Munchkin from the Wizard of Oz movie; Chandler Quinn can build or repair anything, including otherworldly machines; little Vida Proust lumbers around town because the gentle inhabitants of Elderton are too polite to tell her the truth of her existence (or lack thereof); and poor Frank Shepard is a flickering wraith of a man, a reanimated superhero who has forgotten how to fly. As Savitch pursues his story, his homecoming coincides with unthinkable events that not only threaten the town's tranquility, but also alter each intersecting life and transform the very fabric of reality itself''.

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.''

The Terrible Changes., Lane,  Joel
225 Lane, JoelThe Terrible Changes. 25774
Ex Occidente Press: Romania. 2009.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
From ''The Brand'' (written in 1983) to ''Alouette'' (written in 2008), these stories are selected from a quarter-century of writing. Twelve previously uncollected stories are reprinted from magazines and anthologies, bridging various strands of the weird fiction genre: urban horror tales, elegiac ghost stories, erotic reveries and psychological fugues. Two brief new tales offer different perspectives on the theme of mortality. Influences on these stories include Robert Aickman, John Metcalfe, Ramsey Campbell, M. John Harrison, Jean Genet, Sylvia Plath and Robert Smith. 300 hardcover copies printed.

''in midwinter, an aspiring politician finds himself suddenly deprived of human contact. A group of newcomers to a town are strangely reminiscent of people lost in a recent flood. In a world where grief is forbidden, a young man builds a mound to commemorate his lover. An obsessive reader of Poe enters the world of his idol's stories. Demonstrators on a peace march see the faces of sleeping children in the snow. A failed musician meets his own ancestors getting off a midnight train. Joel Lane's short stories combine the supernatural with themes of human loss, passion, solitude and despair. The complexity of the urban landscape provides a background to stories in which nothing can be relied upon. Ghosts and visions are an inevitable part of a reality where facts are uncertain, loyalties are divided, and the unknown is always close at hand. In Lane's fiction, the weird is a symbolic language that expresses the chilling beauty, sadness and mystery of real life''.

Hardcover.
Supernatural novel. Limited to 300 hardcover copies.

''Hans Schneider is a drunkard and a womaniser; everyone agrees he's heading for a bad end. When he kills a fellow student in a duel, he finds himself banished to an isolated rural hospital, far from the pleasures he desires. There he meets the mysterious Dr Lavenza, and learns about Frankenstein's prescription-the secret of eternal life. Together, Schneider and Lavenza set out to collect the missing pieces of the formula. But they are not alone. From Germany to Rome, from Rome to Paris, to the failed and wretched Eden of an all-too-human God, a dreadful creature follows in their wake, bringing destruction wherever they go. Poor Schneider wants an easy time: drink, women and good company. Instead, he finds himself beset by ghosts and madmen, in a world where music brings the dead to life, and even the most terrifying monster can prove strangely sympathetic''.

237 Lorrain, JeanMonsieur de Phocas: Translated From The French With An Introduction And Afterword By Francis Amery (aka Brian Stableford). 39545
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2015.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
300 pages: 26-page introduction and nine page afterword by Brian Stableford writing as, and indeed translating as, ''Francis Amery''.

''Monsieur de Phocas (1901) has been ranked with Huysmans’ À Rebours (1884) as the summation of the French Decadent Movement. In the novel, Jean Lorrain presents experiences of the darker side of his life in Paris as the adventures of the Duc de Fréneuse (Phocas) and his relationship with the svengaliesque English painter Claudius Ethal. Jean Lorrain, born into a shipping family in Normandy in 1855, changed his name to keep his family out of the literary controversy he courted. In his writing and life he cultivated a kind of fascinated loathing for the decadence of fin de siècle Paris: in the words of Hubert Juin, he ‘loved his epoch to the point of detestation.’ Frances Amery’s sumptuous translation brings to life the grotesque, glittering world of Monsieur de Phocas’s journal, and Amery’s masterly Introduction and Afterword describe Lorrain’s place in Montmartre, Paris and the wider literary world''.

243 Lovegrove, JamesHow The Other Half Lives (the very 1st PS Publishing title).. 00497
PS Publishing: Harrogate. 1999.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
The very first title to be published by PS Publishing. Introduction by Colin Greenland. LIMITED EDITION: one of 500 paperbound copies signed by the author (there was also a very limited 52 copy hardcover edition).

''a tale combining the flavour of Edgar Allen Poe with the setting of high finance: one that unravels into an infernal fable about success and it's discontents. Here is a meditation on the schizophrenic nature of our achievements, a cautionary drama in which brutal rationality spills over into psychic melt-down.''

Dreads And Drolls., Machen,  Arthur
248 Machen, ArthurDreads And Drolls. 21423
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2007.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
This volume contains sixty studies, mostly from real life, each of which, by its capacity for inspiring terror or causing amused wonder, qualifies as the 'Dread' or 'Droll' of Arthur Machen's general heading. 'To be able so to tell the bare truth that it seems a magnificent lie' is the qualification which has attracted Machen to the most outstanding of his narrations. When Dreads and Drolls was first published in 1926 it contained twenty-nine articles reprinted from London's The Graphic. This new edition more than doubles that number by including all of his contributions from that magazine. To 'The Euston Square Mystery', 'The Adventure of the Long-Lost Brother' and others we have been able to add 'A Castle in Celtic Myths', 'A Pretty Parricide', 'One Night When I Was Frightened' and many more. There is a tendency towards the re-telling of notable eighteenth-century crimes among these 'Dreads' and 'Drolls', but Machen also manages to illuminate such a wide range of subjects as the Holy Grail, the 'Little People' and cookery. In this entertaining and diverse collection of essays, Machen manages to show how little human nature has changed through the centuries. 300 copies printed.
