A Country Still All Mystery (signed & dated)., Valentine,  Mark
424 Valentine, MarkA Country Still All Mystery (signed & dated). 42769
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
306 pages. Collection of essays. Limited to 300 hardcover copies. MY COPIES SIGNED & DATED BY THE AUTHOR.

''the English landscape was made . . . not just for food and shelter and pleasure, but also for the journey of the soul. There is a field of supernatural stories set in this 'other' country, the country of the spirit. In A Country Still All Mystery, Mark Valentine explores how certain writers have used their fiction to convey the idea of numinous terrain, places where we might at any moment stray into the realms of the unearthly and uncanny. These essays continue similar literary and antiquarian themes to his well-received earlier volume, Haunted By Books (2015). When and where was the last wolf seen in England? Why were certain lonely houses left beyond parish boundaries? Is there a missing book by T.E. Lawrence? What was the secret history of Cope & Fenwick, liturgical publishers? What became of the original Tower of Moab?''.

Frost., Wandrei,  Donald
430 Wandrei, DonaldFrost. 05417
Fedogan & Bremer: Minneapolis. 2000.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Pulp crime collection: collects the title story and seven others, all originally published as part of a series (18 installments in all, eight by Wandrei) in ''Clues Detective Magazine'' in the early 1930's. Edited and with an introduction by D. H. Olson: illustrated by Les Edwards.

''Part Sherlock Holmes, part Shadow, Frost stood apart from the gritty trench-cloaked private eyes of the hard-boiled genre. At once looking back to the genteel, ratiocinative detectives of the 19th century and forward to the gimmick-laden adventurers of the James Bond generation, Frost was eccentric, enigmatic, and very, very, deadly.''

A book in the Barbara Holloway crime/mystery series.

''murder mystery novel: the story's setting, a rehabilitation clinic in Oregon, seems innocent enough, but it turns out that everyone has reason to hate Dr. David McIvey, and someone finally kills him. The book excels because of the depth of Wilhelm's character development. Fields picks up on this strength, using changes in tone and style to give each character a unique personality, particularly the women, who hate McIvey for personal or professional reasons, or both''.
