''The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. Itís a bad place to grow up. The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe itís just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore. And then sixteen-year-old Phee Laws, surfing Saturnís rings, saves an enigmatic blue box from destruction. Aboard the Wheel, the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find a critical situation - and they are suspected by some as the source of the sabotage. They soon find themselves caught in a mystery that goes right back to the creation of the solar system. A mystery that could kill them all''.

'''Space is what keeps everything from being in the same place. Right?' With these words Hiram Patterson, head of the giant media corporation OurWorld, launches the greatest communications revolution in history. With OurWorld's development of wormhole technology, any point in space can be connected to any other, faster than the speed of light. Realtime television coverage is here: earthquakes and wars, murders and disasters can be watched, exactly as they occur, anywhere on the planet. Then WormCams are made to work across time as well as space. Humanity encounters itself in the light of other days. We witness the life of Jesus, go to the premiere of Hamlet, solve the enigmas that have baffled generations. Blood spilled centuries ago flows vividly once more - and no personal treachery or shame can be concealed. But when the world and everything in it becomes as transparent as glass and there are no more secrets, people find new ways to gain vengeance and commit crime, and Hiram Patterson finds new ways to keep his Machiavellian schemes secret''.

''the ruins were getting younger. They were thought to be the ruins of an invading force of space monsters that men had defeated during the Dark Ages centuries before. But the ruins were visibly getting newer - rebuilding themselves. The militarists who had reconstructed society after the supposed invasion were getting panicky. Until they found a complete invader vehicle - and learned it travelled through time. But what was Time? What was Now? Could there be more than one Time Front - one going forward, one in reverse? And what would happen when two such fronts met in the inevitable collision course?''

SF short story collection. Uncommon UK hardcover.

''but perhaps the most significant work the author produced in the 1970's was in short fiction, most of it collected in THE KNIGHTS OF THE LIMITS, a remarkable (though astonishingly bleak) assembly of experiments in the carrying of story ideas to the end of their tether. He continues to be seriously underestimated, perhaps because of his almost total restriction to pulp formats'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

A Fine And Private Place., Beagle,  Peter S.
328 Beagle, Peter S.A Fine And Private Place. 28676
Frederick Muller: London. 1960.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Fantasy novel, the author's first book. The British edition is very uncommon.

''his beginnings were precocious. After a nongenre story - ''Telephone Call'' for Seventeen in 1957- he published his first and by many still most-loved novel, A FINE AND PRIVATE PLACE (1960), before he was twenty-one. In its grave and controlled polish, it does not seem the work of a young man. Though the tale's warm intricacies - and the author's occasional flights of sentimentality - tend to obscure the fact, A Fine and Private Place is a supernatural fiction in chamber-opera form, whose small cast of sharply realized characters play out their destinies within a narrow compass, without any genuine exit available into a fantasy healing: their coming to terms with life and death is, in the end, this-worldly. In a Bronx graveyard lives Jonathan Rebeck, a recluse from life's challenges who is kept alive, in part, by a talking raven, and who has survived here for almost two decades (there is an echo of this in Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire - 1976]- whose Lestat dwells long years hidden in a cemetery). He is surrounded by ghosts of those buried there, who seem to remain sentient - after the manner of the dead in the style of classic Posthumous Fantasy - until they have come to terms with the true shapes of the lives they had in the flesh. Rebeck, a live companion and two ghosts all duly discover that the stories they've been telling themselves about themselves are more or less false, and that they must live (or die) the true story; the novel closes with the two ghosts lying embraced in a single grave, while the two live characters go off to have breakfast. The influence of Robert Nathan upon this novel has been acknowledged by Beagle, who has said it is ''a direct descendant'' of Nathan's One More Spring (1933)'' (John Clute/Encyclopeia of Fantasy).

333 Bear, GregAnvil of Stars (inscribed & dated by the author). 26662
Legend: London. 1992.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel: sequel to THE FORGE OF GOD (1987). THIS COPY INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR IN YEAR OF PUBLICATION/''For David! All best wishes - Greg Bear Birmingham '92''.

''The Forge of God (1987) tackles the end of the worldD by confronting near-future humanity with a sequence of alien intrusions, one of which proves utterly and implacably fatal to the existence of the planet. The bulldog inexorability with which the author presents this scenario is darkly exhilarating, and seemed at the time a welcome prophylactic to the assumption embedded in most hard-sf novels that catastrophes, no matter how grave, will be sidestepped by the fit: a sequel, however, ANVIL OF STARS (1992 UK), somewhat softens the blow of the first volume by carrying a few human survivors in an alien ship on a revenge mission directed against the apparent makers of the autonomous weapons which destroyed Earth'' (John Clute/The Encyclopedia of SF).

''is connected to the world depicted in Queen of Angels, is a broader and more traditional tale. Its depiction of Mars may lack some of the resolute arguments that accompany every speculative suggestion in Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars sequence, but Bear's novel gains a commensurate freedom of sweep in its story -- which intermixes politics and an array of scientific discoveries -- of the emancipation of Mars from the hegemony of a paranoia-driven Earth. The title, it may be fair to add, is meant literally'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Even with Liam gone, things are not as they should be, and eventually Jasmyn begins to explore the mysteries that have sprung up after her husband's death ...and follow their trail back into the events of his life. But the mysteries are deeper than Jasmyn expects, and are leading her in unexpected directions - into fairytales filled with swans, castles and bones; into a tale of a murder comitted by a lake and a vicious battle between brothers; into a story of a lost past, and a stolen love. She's entering a magical story. Jasmyn's story''.

Second book in the sf/fantasy Ratha cat series, sequel to RATHA'S CREATURE (1983).

''UK-born writer, in the USA from age five, who remains best-known for her sf; she lives with M. Coleman Easton, writing sf with him under the name of Clare Coleman. The Ratha sequence of young adult novels - Ratha's Creature (1983), Clan Ground (1984), Ratha and Thistle-Chaser (1990), The Jaguar Princess (1993) and Ratha's Challenge (1995) - can be read as alternate-world sf where evolution has favoured the cat, but the long saga of Ratha's growth as leader of her tribe of cougar-like talking felines, and the interplay of genetic and dynastic fantasy-like narrative strands, is really fantasy'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
