Solis., Attanasio,  A. A.
201 Attanasio, A. A.Solis. 04725
Hodder & Stoughton: London. 1994.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

'' sf novel whose plot and pacing initially remind one of an early Keith Laumer adventure, but which expands upon and darkens its origins in space opera; the protagonist, after a millennium of cryonicsleep, awakens into an extremely complex and cruel world run by AIs, where he is used for pornography and enslaved before his eventual rescue. It could not be said that AAA is a tempered writer; but the splurge and dance of his prose can be, at times, enormously enlivening'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

The Dragon And The Unicorn., Attanasio,  A. A.
202 Attanasio, A. A.The Dragon And The Unicorn. 04979
Hodder & Stoughton: London. 1994.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
First volume in an Arthurian fantasy series: followed by ARTHOR and THE PERILOUS ORDER. Preceded the US edition by over two years.

''with THE DRAGON AND THE UNICORN (1994 UK) and Arthor (1995) he began an ambitious Arthurian sequence: the first volume presents a complex cosmogony in which the unicorn - a noncorporeal creature of the sun - takes on bodily form only when caught in bondage to the Earth. The figure of Merlin gradually emerges as an avatar of a spirit or demon immemorially appalled by matter. The second volume, which focuses on ''Arthor'', is bound more explicitly to traditional Arthurian material, though Arthor himself is an unusually brutal figure. Morgeu enters the picture, and there is much adversarial magic, with Merlin opposing her. A florid quest-like urgency permeates all of the author's work; indeed, most of his protagonists are themselves driven by quest imperatives, usually the need to discover their own identities. The wide range of his work may have kept him from wide fame within the field, as may an erratic style (eloquence and bathos frequently abut within single paragraphs); there remains, however, a sense that this rich variousness will, sooner or later, become fully recognized'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia Of Fantasy).

204 Attanasio, A. A.Wyvern. 04079
Grafton Books: London. 1989.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Fantasy/sf novel.

''his novels are generally sf - he is best-known for the Radix Tetrad sequence beginning with Radix (1981) - but the exorbitant intensity of his rendering of the visible world brings them at times close to magic realism. Set mostly in the South Pacific in the early 17th century, WYVERN (1988), which is fantasy, follows the rite of passage into adulthood of a blond Tarzan-like enfant sauvage whom the ''natives'' of Borneo think is a demon and who is raised by a soul-catcher sorcerer to fulfil prophecies; in the event he becomes a pirate, shifting en passant from the realm of fantasy to the realm of historical romance'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

When Mankind Was Young (presentation copy from the author)., Austin,  F. Britten
207 Austin, F. BrittenWhen Mankind Was Young (presentation copy from the author). 40659
Doubleday, Page & Co.: NY. 1927.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Collection of linked stories set in prehistoric times. In Bleiler's Checklist of SF & Supernatural Fiction, 1978, p. 12. PRESENTATION COPY, SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR/''To Charles (?), who makes splendid music of his appreciations, hoping he will like these barbaric (?), from his friend, F. Britten Austin, 7 June 1927''.

''(1885-1941) UK author and WW1 army captain, most noted for his collections of stories illustrating problems for UK military security arising in Future Wars from new weapons and tactics: In Action: Studies of War (1913) and The War-God Walks Again (1926). The latter volume is occasionally eloquent; whether ''When the War-God Walks Again'' (October 1927 Chums) directly duplicates material from the book itself has not been established. Austin also wrote several volumes of linked stories, each comprising a kind of anthropological romance telling the development of a significant aspect of Man's history through the ages; examples are A Saga of the Sea (1929), where a ship's history is told, and A Saga of the Sword (1928). The first and last stories of each of these collections tend to infringe upon sf material and concerns. His other works also include some marginal sf; for example, the final tale in The Red Flag (1932) is set in 1977'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..

213 Aylett, SteveSlaughtermatic. 16153
Phoenix House Ltd: London. 1998.

Trade paperback.
SF novel.

''UK writer who very quickly developed a reputation for his tone of voice, which could be described as gonzo, surreal, metacyberpunkish, riff-driven, surfer-noir; it is a voice which sometimes obscures the objects of his tales, which attack the objects of their satire through vignettes, quotes and characters from the pulp magazines and comics of the previous century. He began publishing work of interest to the field of the fantastic with The Crime Studio ( 1994), a set of fragmented shorts set in the vaguely Gotham-like crime-ridden Dystopian city of Beerlight, where Jorge Luis Borges intersects (as in his own works) with Mickey Spillane; further volumes set in Beerlight include SLAUGHTERMATIC (1999), Toxicology (coll 1999 US: exp 2001) and Atom (2000)'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Robert Hale: London. 1974.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel, the author's only book Robert Hale produced books primarily for the library market (still flourishing in the 1970s) and so most titles are very uncommon:

''Author known only for his single sf novel for Robert Hale, THE LAST EXPERIMENT (1974). Robert Hale was a UK publishing firm which from 1936 - 1984, though mainly in the 1970s, published more than 450 sf novels, in hardbound editions, primarily for the library market. A large majority of titles originating with the firm were uniform in length (192 pages) and routine in substance, most being Space Operas varied with occasional Dystopias, though other forms of sf also featured. Although in the 1970s Hale published many US sf writers - including Poul Anderson, A Bertram Chandler, Hal Clement, Gordon R Dickson, Ron Goulart, Harry Harrison, Keith Laumer, Frank Belknap Long, Andre Norton, Robert Silverberg and Kate Wilhelm - from the mid-70s most titles issued were by authors unknown to the sf world. Some of these were young authors - for example, Adrian Cole and David S Garnett - who would soon move on to more ambitious projects, and some - for example, the actor Michael Elder - were authors who published primarily with Hale and who were clearly real individuals. Many, however, were pseudonyms, some of which have never been been identified'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..

''High in the Smokey Mountains, in an instant of gut-wrenching horror, five lives are about to change forever. For Nick Laymon, that night begins like any other evening during his four years at Ransom College with cold beer in the company of his closest friends, Finny Durant and Reed Tucker, followed by the sweet midnight promise of the girl he's always dreamed of, Sue Thompson. It will end nine hours later, when Nick and his friends run down a lone pedestrian on a stretch of deserted mountain highway. In the folds of the dead man's coat, Nick finds two items: a sheaf of hundred dollar bills and a mysterious key. The cash ignites ambitions Nick has barely dared admit before this moment. The key will lead him to a bus station locker and the homemade video tape that waits inside it. And the video tape, with its graphic depiction of the rape and murder of a missing teenage girl, will plunge them all into a nightmare''

First edition (& 1st printing).
Uncorrected book proof (trade paperback).
This is the earliest uncorrected proof (384 pages) in plain light blue covers, and is taken from the author's own typescript. It states:''IMPORTANT NOTE. This early proof is reproduced from the author's uncorrected and unedited typescript. Nothing should be quoted from this version without being checked against the final copy''. Note: Gollancz issued a later proof (254 pages) completely re-set from this earlier version with white covers and a b/w image of a steamboat on the front (and some early quotes on the back) cover, and states: ''This is an advanced reading copy from uncorrected proofs''. It was this later second proof that was sent out to reviewers and bookshops.
