Paperback original.
SF novel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

'his next two novels are singletons, and represent his most accomplished work to date. PASQUALE'S ANGEL (1994) is an alternate-world story set in a Renaissance Italy dominated by the remote figure of Leonardo da Vinci, who in this reality has created a dystopian society through the power of his engineering genius. In the mid 1990s, the author is beginning to look like one of the significant exploratory talent of late sf (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Reprint.
Paperback original.
SF novel. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''his next two novels are singletons, and represent his most accomplished work to date. RED DUST (1993) is set, like many 1990's novels, on a Mars which has been colonized (and terraformed) by humans. His treatment of this dominant theme -- in terms of a quest plot which takes its American protagonist across a complex landscape ruled by the Chinese -- is vivid, swift, and spontaneous-seeming. In the mid 1990s, the author is beginning to look like one of the significant exploratory talent of late sf'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

The Missing Matter: The Next Wave Book 3., McDonough,  Thomas R.
307 McDonough, Thomas R.The Missing Matter: The Next Wave Book 3. 35655
Bantam Spectra: NY. 1992.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Hard-sf novel (with an essay by Wallace H. Tucker).

''McDonough began to publish fiction only in 1979 with ''Statues of the Gods'' for Starlog. His first novel, The Architects of Hyperspace (1987), features a clearly argued Hard-SF vision of a Galaxy containing at least one artificial toroidal world; there is also sophisticated speculation about the growth of civilizations throughout the Universe. Unfortunately these cognitive virtues are muffled by an only intermittently humorous pulp style; the novel features at least one bibulous Irishman. The Next Wave #3: The Missing Matter (1992), part of the Next Wave sequence of thematically connected tales by various authors packaged by Byron Preiss, provides a similar mix of intriguingly couched cognition and comic turns in its investigation of black matter'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

The Ship Of Ishtar., Merritt,  A.
310 Merritt, A.The Ship Of Ishtar. 22294
Avon Book Company: NY. 1945.
First paperback edition.
Paperback original.
Classic fantasy, first published in 1924, Avon Murder Mystery Monthly MM 34.

'' (1884-1943) US journalist - latterly editor of William Randolph Hearst's American Weekly - and writer of lush fantasies which took exotic escapism to extremes unexplored even by Edgar Rice Burroughs. His fiction was among the most popular ever published in the pulp magazines, and occupied such a significant place in the reprint magazines Famous Fantastic Mysteries and Fantastic Novels as to cause the founding of a companion, A. Merritt's Fantasy Magazine (1949-1950). . THE SHIP OF ISHTAR (1924; 1926) foreshadows modern Heroic Fantasy in its use of a Secondary World and an ongoing struggle between Good and Evil, here personified as Ishtar and Nergal. The victory ultimately won by Good is pyrrhic, and the happy ending seems contrived for propriety's sake. This downbeat tendency in Merritt's work became increasingly evident, although his editors did their utmost to thwart it'' (Brian Stableford/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

315 Monteleone, Thomas F.Seeds Of Change. 33612
Laser Books: Ontario. 1975.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
The very first Laser book (unnumbered): ''...these were more ambitious than most of his work at novel length, which is undemanding adventure fiction, starting with SEEDS OF CHANGE(1975); this is of interest in that, as the first of the Laser Books, it was issued free to libraries and booksellers as a promotional item in order to generate sales of later titles'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition). 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.

First edition (& 1st printing).
Large digest magazine.
Issue 18. UK large-digest-size sf magazine edited by Peter Hamilton. 41 issues published between Autumn 1952 - August 1959, published first by Crownpoint Publications, Glasgow (Autumn 1952 - April 1955), and then by editor Peter Hamilton himself (September 1955 - August 1959).

''Nebula was the first and for nearly half a century the only Scottish SF Magazine (until the launch of Spectrum SF in 2000), and was part of the 1950s UK sf magazine revival, of which it was one of the most important titles along with New Worlds and Science Fantasy. Nebula was subsidized by its editor, an enthusiastic fan, still a teenager when the magazine began. It always ran a news section, including a column by the celebrated Irish fan Walt Willis, co-editor of Hyphen and Slant. But although Nebula was fannish it was by no means juvenile; Hamilton was serious-minded and prepared to experiment with difficult stories and to encourage young writers. Brian W Aldiss, Bob Shaw and Robert Silverberg all had their first published stories in Nebula. Other contributors included Harlan Ellison, Eric Frank Russell, Kenneth Bulmer and E C Tubb, the latter being the most prolific. Early issues each contained a novel plus a small number of short stories, but the novel-an-issue policy was later dropped. The handsome and distinctive front covers were the work of various artists, including Gerard Quinn and Eddie Jones. Nebula was popular with writers; Hamilton was able to keep it going as very much a one-man show, never very profitably, for seven years. Some later issues went on sale in the USA'' [Peter Nicholls & Philip Harbottle/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''the leading UK sf magazine, publishing 220-odd issues over an intermittent career of over fifty years, beginning with the first issue in July 1946. The first three issues were pulp-size, published irregularly by Pendulum in 1946 - 1947 under the editorship of sf fan, John Carnell. Nova Publications, a publishing group formed by UK sf fans who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, revived this somewhat tentative 1946 - 1947 magazine in 1949 as a digest. Carnell remained in charge until #141 (April 1964), after which the title was taken over by Roberts & Vinter, publishers of Compact Books, who issued it in a paperback edition, edited by Michael Moorcock. After #172 (March 1967) it was published by Moorcock under the auspices of the Arts Council in a stapled 8in x 11in (approx A4) format, rising to bedsheet-size with #179, ending with #201. There have been further (irregular) issues since then, but for the greater part of the period from #22 to #200 the magazine maintained a monthly schedule with only occasional lapses'' (Encyclopedia of SF).

After the final (subscribers only) magazine issue #201 in 1970, the title was picked up and continued for ten further ''issues'' as a quarterly paperback original (firstly with eight from Sphere and a further two from Corgi, the first five edited by Moorcock alone, the remaining co-edited with/by others), making ten paperback volumes in all. These paperbacks were numbered 1 - 10. Subsequently when New Worlds continued again as a fanzine for a few more issues from 1976 (the first numbered 212), these ten paperback issues were considered as no 202 - 211. So New Words Quarterly 8 would be whole issue no 209.

Page edges browned, first and last couple of pages spotted, a G/VG copy.

''the leading UK sf magazine, publishing 220-odd issues over an intermittent career of over fifty years, beginning with the first issue in July 1946. The first three issues were pulp-size, published irregularly by Pendulum in 1946 - 1947 under the editorship of sf fan, John Carnell. Nova Publications, a publishing group formed by UK sf fans who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, revived this somewhat tentative 1946 - 1947 magazine in 1949 as a digest. Carnell remained in charge until #141 (April 1964), after which the title was taken over by Roberts & Vinter, publishers of Compact Books, who issued it in a paperback edition, edited by Michael Moorcock. After #172 (March 1967) it was published by Moorcock under the auspices of the Arts Council in a stapled 8in x 11in (approx A4) format, rising to bedsheet-size with #179, ending with #201. There have been further (irregular) issues since then, but for the greater part of the period from #22 to #200 the magazine maintained a monthly schedule with only occasional lapses'' (Encyclopedia of SF).
