Young Tiger., Geis,  Richard E.
201 Geis, Richard E.Young Tiger. 36764
Softcover Library: NY. 1965.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Erotic/pornographic novel: ''the sensual story of Paul Cook - and the three women who made him a man. B868X, 60c price.

''his first published story was ''Flight Game'' for Adam in 1959. He concentrated thereafter on pornographic fiction, with well over 100 titles, both soft- and hardcore; his personal estimate was 110 such titles. Not many of these had sf or fantastic themes, though exceptions were the Roi Kunzer books - The Sex Machine (1967) and The Endless Orgy (1968) - and the singletons Raw Meat (1969), about a world where Sex is intimately controlled by The Great Mother Computer, The Arena Women (1972) and A Girl Possessed (1973) as by Peggy Swenson. Three further erotic sf novels by Geis were self-published, mimeographed limited editions: Canned Meat (1978 chap), Star Whores (1980 chap) and its sequel The Corporation Strikes Back (1981 chap)'' (John Clute & Peter Nicholls & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Sphere: London. 1977.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Second of six vampirella novels written by Goulart in the mid-1970s.

''slant-eyed, black-haired, voluptuous beauty from the planet Draculon, where blood, rather than water, is the life-sustaining liquid. She wears a revealing red swimsuit with tiny wing collars and a gold bat motif across her crotch, plus calf-length black boots. She was created by Forrest J. Ackerman and artist Frank Frazetta, with costume design by Trina Robbins, and first appeared in the comics magazine Vampirella in 1969. Her early adventures, in which she comes to Earth to prey on humans, were written, with tongue firmly in cheek, by Ackerman and drawn by Tom Sutton. In 1971 the artwork was taken over by the Spanish artist José (Pepé) Gonzalez - in his hands Vampirella became a cuddly sex object, and her popularity increased dramatically among young male readers. Scripts were now written by Archie Goodwin and featured the vampire-hunter Adam Van Helsing (a descendant of Bram Stoker's character in Dracula [1897]), with whom Vampirella eventually developed a romance.. Novelizations by Ron Goulart have been Bloodstalk (1975), ON ALIEN WINGS (1975), Deadwalk (1976), Blood Wedding (1976), Deathgame (1976) and Snakegod (1976)'' [Ron Tiner/Encyclopedia of Fantasy]

The Horde., Green,  Joseph

Laser Books: Ontario. 1976.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Laser 27. SF novel.

''Canadian sf imprint initiated in 1975 by Harlequin Books, the US publisher of Mills & Boon romances, under the editorship of Roger Elwood. The books were restricted to a formula which specified a male protagonist, an upbeat ending, no sex or atheism, and a minimum of long words. All Laser Book covers were the work of Frank Kelly Freas. The series was suspended early in 1977 after fifty-seven books had appeared. The Laser formula made it unlikely that books of any literary quality would be published, but some were interesting, including K W Jeter's debut, Seeklight (1975), Ray Nelson's Blake's Progress (1975; rev vt Timequest 1985) and Tim Powers's first two novels, The Skies Discrowned (1976) and Epitaph in Rust (1976)'' (Malcolm J.

Pan X651. SF novel. First published by Victor Gollancz in hardcover in 1965.

''although many of his 70 stories to date (not all sf) have appeared in the USA - along with popular-science articles in Astounding that demonstrate the lucid gift of exposition visible also in his fiction - it was in the UK that he first established his name, and there that most of his books were first published. THE LOAFERS OF REFUGE (stories April 1962 - July 1963 New Worlds; fixup 1965), his first novel, chronicles the gradual coming together, to their mutual benefit, of colonizing humans and humanlike natives on the planet Refuge, mainly through the mediation of the protagonist'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Ace Books: NY. Nd (1964).
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Ace F-318. SF novel, sequel to THE BLIND SPOT (1951), originally serialised in Argosy magazine in 1932.

''possibly confused by the collaborative process, The Blind Spot (14 May-18 June 1921 Argosy; 1951) with Homer Eon Flint cloaks a central plot - involving an interdimensional portal into a Parallel World - in layers of unresolved melodrama. Cruelly, Damon Knight quoted extensively from it in a critical piece (reprinted as part of Chapter 3 of In Search of Wonder, coll 1956; exp 1967; exp 1996) to demonstrate its infelicities. The second volume in the Blind Spot sequence, THE SPOT OF LIFE (13 August-10 September 1932 Argosy Weekly; 1964), was by Hall alone; it offers scientific explanations for the gateway (or blind spot) plus doses of dynastic politicking in the parallel world'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

The Rose., Harness,  Charles L.
223 Harness, Charles L.The Rose. 27609
Roberts & Vinter, Ltd/Compact: London. 1966.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Collects the short novel THE ROSE, plus two stories, ''The Chess Players'' and ''The New Reality''. Introduction by Michael Moorcock. Compact F295.

''the first phase of his career (1948-1953) may well have ended because of his failure to sell the remarkable novella ''The Rose'' (1953 Authentic SF; title story of THE ROSE [Compact 1966 UK], to a US market. This striking allegory of the opposed worldviews of science and the arts is a memorable exemplar of the particular kind of superman story which represents future human evolution in metamorphic terms. Its reprinting in the 1960s was the result of the interest in Harness's work of Michael Moorcock, who reprinted several of his stories in New Worlds, and this may have been responsible for Harness's second burst of creativity, which produced The Ring Of Ritornel and several shorter works drawing on his experience as a lawyer, including ''An Ornament to his Profession'' (1966) and ''The Alchemist'' (1966)'' (Brian Stableford/Encyclopedia of SF).

''his third novel, THE CENTAURI DEVICE (1974 US), is a significantly disgruntled space opera, perhaps his least successful book, and one which demonstrates the author's persistent discomfort with the escapist conventions of this sort of sf. Unsurprisingly, the doomsday device of the title duly blows up the galaxy'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Paperback original.
Corinth CR134. Number four in the seven volume series of Corinth paperbacks published in 1966, reprinting stories from the 1930s pulp magazine SECRET AGENT X.

''US pulp magazine, also known as Secret Agent X: Detective Mysteries. 41 issues from February 1934 to March 1941. Published by Periodical House Inc, an imprint of Ace Magazines. Editors were Rose Wyn for the first few years, then Harry Widmer for the remainder of the run. Publication varied from monthly to an erratic bimonthly schedule. The titular Secret Agent ''X'' - created by pulp author Paul Chadwick under the House Name Brant House - was never identified by name. He had an X-shaped scar above his heart from a shrapnel wound in World War One, leading to his alias; apparently some of the metal remained and occasionally caused him great pain. Billed as ''The Man of a Thousand Faces'', X could quickly change his appearance, using make-up and props rather than any Superpower. Originally he fought crime on behalf of an unknown group of very wealthy sponsors, but then became a US Government agent for the ''K-R'' group, presumably led by Harvey Bates. Colleagues included reporter Betty Dale and the more conventional private investigator Jim Hobart. Though himself an only mildly offbeat detective/counter-espionage agent, X often faced Mad Scientists and other villains who used futuristic Weapons, were capable of reanimating the dead, and so on. X, somewhat unusually for the time, preferred non-lethal weapons such as a gas pistol which temporarily knocked out opponents. In the 1960s, Corinth Books attempted to revive the character in paperback following Bantam Books' success with Doc Savage, but this venture ended after only seven volumes. Other small presses began reprinting the title in recent years, together with new novels by such authors as Sean Elliis'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
