''is told in a more immediately accessible style than some of his short stories, though at moments the narrative form of the text -- related by a doctor in the form of a confessional memoir -- and some of the ornate chill of the narrator's mind are reminiscent of the darker tales of Gene Wolfe. The tale begins in a familiar, congested near-future California, moves to a colony planet mined by ''mountainous'', biologically engineered, short-lived slaves -- whom the doctor helps liberate while at the same time analysing the plague which has killed his lover -- and finally returns to Earth, where the doctor, having discovered that the plague has the effect of transforming humans into gestalt configurations, disseminates it in secret in order to bring down a repressive government'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

456 Bonanno, Margaret WanderPreternatural Too: Gyre. 16473
Tor: NY. 2000.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Second volume in the Preternatural sf trilogy.

''in The Preternatural sequence, comprising Preternatural (1996), Preternatural Too: Gyre (2000) and Preternatural3 (2002), complexly combines fabulation with sf tropes - like Time Travel and episodes occupying intersecting Dimensions and Aliens stranded on Earth - in a narrative which in part comprises a multi-volume book written by a forty-something sf writer in trouble with her life and work, and in part carries this sf writer herself into recursive SF venues which may be delusional. On the other hand, the aliens may be writing her. The sequence is technically of considerable interest, though Bonanno's control over her material is sometimes less than magisterial'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''two thousand years after the world’s total destruction, Areyn Sehduk, the god of death, has returned to rekindle the war. Appearing as a warrior from a rival clan, Areyn slays the king of the Lochvaur, knowing that he can shift the balance in the world of mortals. But the king’s death brings an unlikely adversary. Lachlei, the queen of the Lochvaur, proves to be a daunting warrior. Swearing vengeance against the rival clan, Lachlei thrusts her people into a deadly war against demons and undead. Only Rhyn’athel, the god of warriors, can help her. Disguised as a mortal, Rhyn’athel joins Lachlei’s elite guard in the hopes of preventing total destruction of the world. But Rhyn’athel has fallen hopelessly in love with Lachlei, and his presence in the world changes the very fabric of the future.

First book in a new fantasy series.

''Untold ages ago, vainglorious spirits battled with the three gods in a bid for dominion over all - only to be defeated and banished below the earth to fester in their unquenchable evil. One of these vengeful demons eventually broke free and rained bloody death upon an innocent village in the land of Ellynrie. Few survived. The Starcross brothers, mere children orphaned by their parents' slaughter, suffered very difficult fates. Corin Starcross was delivered to safety by the wizard Dale, while his brother, Cade, was abandoned to the flames that devoured their childhood home. Likewise, the mercenary Wren Tident saved his infant daughter, Kayla, from the monstrous fate that claimed her mother. When the demon retreated to its black abyss, the haunted souls left in its murderous wake did their best to carry on - save for one, who vowed retribution. When Cade Starcross reappears, he immerses himself in a secret study of the blackest arts, and a grim dance of destiny begins. His humanity withered by grief and his mind twisted by his apprenticeship to darkness, Cade seeks to use sorcery to wreak vengeance on his demon nemesis. But in order to succeed, a dagger of unearthly power wrought by the gods themselves must be found. And the blood of Cade's brother, Corin Starcross, must be spilled. Yet all of Cade's fury and magic will prove no match for the evil set free upon the earth. By any means and at all costs, the doomed vendetta must be stopped. A fledgling wizard, a tormented warrior, and a young girl burning with her father's untamed spirit must rally together as the only hope of a world poised perilously at the abyss.''.

David & Charles: London. 1979.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Non-fiction. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''Scottish writer and newspaper research librarian who reportedly published his first sf, ''Autodestruct'', in 1964 in an issue of Storyteller Contest or International Storyteller which has not been traced. A further and better established genre sale was ''The Rig'' (September 1966 SF Impulse). Boyce's most important work was the sf novel Catchworld (1975), joint winner (with Charles Logan's Shipwreck [1975]) of the Gollancz/Sunday Times SF Novel Award. Catchworld is an ornate, sometimes overcomplicated tale combining sophisticated brain-computer interfaces and Space Opera; the transcendental bravura of the book's climax is memorable. In Brainfix (1980), a cautionary Near Future tale about social disorder in the UK, Boyce had the misfortune of predicting a rise in unemployment to an unheard-of three million in a fiction published just months before, in the harsh reality of the first Thatcher recession, it actually reached four million; he was also wrong about the government's need to use nerve gas extensively in order to control the people. EXTRATERRESTRIAL ENCOUNTER (1979) is a speculative nonfiction inquiry into Xenobiology and the search for extraterrestrial Intelligence'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Odhams Press: London. 1963-1964.
First edition.
Oversize comic.
89 issues of this UK weekly boys' comic were published in total 1963-1964, after which it merged with Eagle. There were 49 issues in volume 1 (1963) and 40 issues in volume 2 (1964). This broken run of 37 issues consists of - vol 1 no 12 (13th April, 1963), 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 48, then vol 2 no 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 24, 25 and 37 (12th September 1964). Probably the best remembered strip in Boys' World was WRATH OF THE GODS, an epic fantasy set in ancient Greece and written by MICHAEL MOORCOCK and initially drawn by Ron Embleton (first 23 issues), published from January 1963 as a colour centrespread and continuing until just after its amalgamation with Eagle in October 1964. The stories recounted the adventures of an impetuous young man, Arion, and his various encounters with the minor gods and magical figures of the ancient Greek myths. Compared with the usual standard of comics writing at the time they were well paced and inventive, but are more memorable for the groundbreaking artwork (Ron Tiner/Encyclopedia of Fantasy). Other UK illustrators for the comic were Brian Lewis and Frank Bellamy).

''launched by Odhams Press on 26th January 1963, Boys' World's more notable strips included Interpol secret agent Merlo the Magician, archaeologist Pike Mason, Bret Million: The Angry Planet (inspired by/ripping off Harry Harrison's Deathworld), The Ghost World (about a human colony on an alien planet originally believed to be uninhabited until the settlers discover the hostile natives are invisible to the human eye because they move at superhuman speeds), Dr. What and his Time Clock (a pastiche of Doctor Who), The Iron Man (a robot adventurer), and Billy Binns (whose supernatural spectacles granted the unwitting boy special powers). However, probably the best remembered strip in Boys' World was WRATH OF THE GODS, an epic fantasy initially drawn by Ron Embleton, which told the tale of Arion, who was charged to find the lost weapons of Ajax by Zeus, facing numerous mythological challenges along the way. Boys' World was cancelled after 89 issues on 3rd October 1964 and merged into Eagle. Billy Binns and The Iron Man were among the strips that survived the merger''.

''US author and academic, a professor at the University of Connecticut since 1989, also resident in the UK. His first sf story, the orthodox ''What Makes a Cage?

In his later work he has concentrated on Beast Fable tales, including the remarkable ANIMAL PLANET (1995) and the stories assembled in Hot Animal Love: Tales of Modern Romance (2005); some of these tales are equipoisal with sf readings, but without ever becoming ''arguable'' narratives of mutated American life and mores'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Jamie Knows'' (in Protostars, anth 1971, ed David Gerrold), significantly fails to prefigure his mature works, the best of which appear in THE SECRET LIFE OF HOUSES (1988; exp vt Dream of the Wolf 1990; further exp vt Greetings From Earth: New and Collected Stories 1993), where they apply the torque of Fabulation to Southern Californian venues whose haunted, dehydrated inmates are trapped just short of the healing waters of the Pacific Rim. His first novel, The History Of Luminous Motion (1989), trawls in the same suburban deserts, though without the use of sf protocols, as does What's Wrong with America (1994), comically. In his later work he has concentrated on Beast Fable tales, including the remarkable Animal Planet (1995) and the stories assembled in Hot Animal Love: Tales of Modern Romance (coll 2005); some of these tales are equipoisal with sf readings, but without ever becoming ''arguable'' narratives of mutated American life and mores'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''she made her first professional sale in 1953 with ''Women Only'' for Vortex Science Fiction #2. Although her early work was almost all sf, there was ever a flavour of the fantastic, inspired by her own delight in the works of C.L. Moore and Henry Kuttner, whose novel The Dark World (1946 Startling Stories) Bradley pastiched in her first novel FALCONS OF NARABEDLA (1957 Other Worlds sf magazine; 1964 Ace), which presaged the Darkover series'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
