Hardcover.
Supernatural Southern Gothic horror novel set in Texas at the end of WW2.

''1918. In the dying days of World War I, the Spanish Flu devastates the small town of Incarnation, Texas. The sheriff closes the church and quarantines the dying in the schoolhouse. The townsfolk huddle alone in their houses to avoid infection. Each new day brings fresh corpses. But something worse than the flu is coming. Verge Strömberg, son of the domineering town pastor, is a sickly boy who lives in a world of books. His mother disappeared when he was seven, his older brother ran away. Now his father leaves him to tend a church in another county. That’s when the Muladona begins to visit him. Every night, the Muladona, a doomed soul transformed into the Devil’s mule, visits Verge and forces him to listen to a horrific tale. Each night, as Verge huddles under his bed sheets, the monster’s supernatural tales tear his soul apart. Verge’s search for the demonic creature’s true identity leads him through the dark history of Incarnation, from the murder of the Indians by the Spanish settlers, to the disappearance of his mother. In the end, Verge will have to confront the Muladona alone to rescue the memory of his mother and to save his immortal soul''.

Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2002.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Collection of fourteen supernatural stories: the author's first book. Limited to 300 hardcover copies. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

''this first collection of stories by William Charlton shows just how wide a range of material can be used to create a genuine, contemporary tale of unease. From the more traditional horror of ‘Undesirable Guests’, with its dubious visitors left in charge of children in an isolated north-country house, to the surreal, bureaucratic complexities of ‘The Area’, Charlton engineers the everyday into something far more warped and off-beam. ‘Travelling By Air’ has the quality of an unshakeable nightmare, while in ‘Hakanono’, European certainties are fatally undermined in a South Seas setting. ‘Norton Camp’ is a time-travelling ghost story with a military theme, and in ‘The Conference Centre,’ nothing can be taken for granted, not even the walls of the building itself''.

Weird novella: illustrated by the author. Limited to 100 numbered copies.

''1941, in the final throes of the Blitz, Austin Osman Spare becomes the only salvation for a traumatised artist who calls herself Marlene Dietrich, a fugitive from the ominous Institute for Gifted and Orphaned Exiles. Wandering the shattered streets of Southwark Marlene encounters a mysterious gentleman, Paddy Hughes. Consulting her portfolio of drawings as a talisman and aided by spirit lamps, they set out together across the ruined Borough in search of her lost mentor, a man called The Satyr. As Hughes falls under Marlenes spell he is initiated into the secret mythology of her birth from The Danube of her imagination. Unwittingly he becomes her protector while Ms Charnock, a wayward sister of the institute, pursues them, only to be drawn into her patients infernal odyssey. Refracted through the perspectives of the swindler Paddy Hughes, Ms Charnocks reports and Marlenes journals and drawings, the drama builds momentum towards a cataclysm foretold. Interspersed with Marlenes art, drawn by the author, The Satyr is a tale inspired by the life and occult oeuvre of Austin Osman Spare. A jewel of weird and occult literature.The Danube Remembering - The Danube Forgetting. As Above so Below.''

Green Thoughts & Other Stories., Collier,  John
92 Collier, JohnGreen Thoughts & Other Stories. 41314
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2016.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
26 stories ''with a fantastic streak and elements of horror'': 294 pages with an introduction.

''John Collier (1901-1980) is best remembered for his short stories, although he was also a poet, novelist and screenwriter. He was given the Edgar Award and the International Fantasy Award in 1952 for the collection Fancies and Goodnights, and several of his most memorable tales were adapted for television and film. Collier’s tales are clever with a light touch, although he often added dark satire to the humour, in the vein of Swift, whom he admired. The twenty-six stories in this collection concentrate on those with a fantastic streak and elements of horror, resulting in a type of story that is very much his own. He would go on to influence writers such as Ray Bradbury and Roald Dahl. Collier’s short stories have been compared to those of Lord Dunsany, Ambrose Bierce, W. Somerset Maugham, Evelyn Waugh and James Branch Cabell amongst others (he disliked being compared to Saki). But none of them have his sardonic voice, his cynical, mocking humour and playfulness. The fantastic is skilfully introduced, and elevates stories such as ‘Green Thoughts’ and ‘Man Overboard’ to minor classics. It is hoped that this new selection will resuscitate Collier’s reputation and make his best work available to a new generation of readers''.

''a unique and in-depth study of the author and his works. Not only does this volume contain the most comprehensive Working ibliography ever compiled of Basil Copper's productive output - including Macabre and Supernatural Novels and Collections, the ''Solar Pons'' series, the ''Mike Faraday'' series, Short Fiction and Novellas, Media Adaptations, npublished Works and much more, enhanced with commentary by the author himself - but it also features several rare and obscure articles covering everything from Arkham House creator August Derleth to a brief history of Count Dracula. There are also a number of short stories, most of them original to this volume, ranging from his very first published work back in 1938 to a brand-new ''Mike Faraday'' detective adventure, along with a complete television script based on M.R. James' classic horror story 'Count Magnus'. With an in-depth look at the author's life and career by acclaimed ghost story editor Richard Dalby, and Basil Copper's inspirational Guest of Honour speech from the 1977 British Fantasy Convention''.
