3 Abe, ShanaThe Dream Thief. 19455
Bantam Books: NY. 2006.
First edition (& 1st printing).

Shape-shifting fantasy novel.

''in the remote hills of northern England lives a powerful clan with a centuries-old secret. They are the drakon, shape-shifters who possess the ability to Turn - changing from human to smoke to dragon. And from the very stones of the earth, they hear hypnotic songs of beauty and wonder. But there is one stone they fear....buried deep within the bowels of the Carpathian Mountains lies the legendary dreaming diamond known as Draumr, the only gem with the power to enslave the drakon. Since childhood, Lady Amalia Langford, daughter of the clan's Alpha, has heard its haunting ballad but kept it secret, along with another rare Gift....Lia can hear the future, much in the way she hears the call of Draumr. And in that future, she realizes that the diamond - along with the fate of the drakon - rests in the hands of a human man, one who straddles two worlds. Ruthlessly clever, Zane has risen through London's criminal underworld to become its ruler. Once a street urchin saved by Lia's mother, Zane is also privy to the secrets of the clan and is the only human they trust to bring them Draumr. But he does nothing selflessly. Zane's hunt for the gem takes him to Hungary, where he is shocked to encounter a bold, beautiful young noblewoman: Lia. She has broken every rule of the drakkon to join him, driven by the urgent song of Draumr and her visions of Zane. In one future, he is her ally. In another, her overlord. In both, he is her lover. Now, to protect her tribe, Lia must tie her fate to Zane's, to the one man capable of stealing her future and destroying her heart''.

4 Abe, ShanaThe Smoke Thief. 26590
Bantam Dell: NY. 2005.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The first book in the Drakon fantasy series.

''for centuries they've lived in secret among northern England's green and misted hills. Creatures of extraordinary beauty, power, and sensuality, they possess the ability to shape-shift from human to dragon and back again. Now their secret-and their survival-is threatened by a temptation that will break every boundary. Dubbed the Smoke Thief, a daring jewel thief is confounding the London police. His wealthy victims claim the master burglar can walk through walls and vanish into thin air. But Christoff, the charismatic Marquess of Langford, knows the truth: the thief is no ordinary human but a ''runner'' who's fled Darkfrith without permission. As Alpha leader of the draŽkon, it's Kit's duty to capture the fugitive before the secrets of the tribe are revealed to mortals. But not even Kit suspects that the Smoke Thief could be a woman. Clarissa Rue Hawthorne knew her dangerous exploits would attract the attention of the draŽkon. But she didn't expect Christoff himself to come to London, dangling the tribe's most valuable jewel-the Langford Diamond-as bait. For as long as she could remember, Rue had lived the life of a halfling-half draŽkon, half mortal-and an outcast in both worlds. She'd always loved the handsome and willful Kit from the only place it was safe: from afar. But now she was no longer the shy, timid girl she'd once been. She was the first woman capable of making the Turn in four generations. So why did she still feel the same dizzying sense of vulnerability whenever he was near? From the moment he saw her, Kit knew that the alluring and powerful beauty was every bit his Alpha equal and destined to be his bride. And by the harsh laws of the draŽkon, Rue knew that she was the property of the marquess. But they will risk banishment and worse for a chance at something greater. For now Rue is his prisoner, the diamond has disappeared, and she's made the kind of dangerous proposition a man like Kit cannot resist''.

5 Abercrombie, JoeBest Served Cold. 38491
Orbit: NY. 2009.
First American edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Fantasy novel. First published in the UK by Gollancz in June 2009: this US edition was issued in July 2009 (as stated for both editions on the copyright page).

''mercenaries are a wonderful thing: they fight as you tell them, whom you tell them, and when you tell them, for nothing more precious or complicated than money. And Monzcarro Mercatto, and her brother (and lover) Benna Mercatto, are the two most successful, most popular, and most wealthy mercenaries in Styria...but wealthy, popular mercenaries are not such a good thing. In fact they're a downright dangerous thing. Which is why Grand Duke Orso of Styria arranges to have them dealt with. Permanently. With hindsight, he may come to consider this a tactical error. Through sheer good luck - which her brother doesn't share - Monzcarro survives the long and fatal drop Orso arranged for her, and staggers away from her encounter with a ruined right hand, an opium addiction ...and a plan to come back with a fortune, plenty of bladed weapons, and a single-minded determination to kill the seven men in the room when her brother was murdered. Preferably in as gruesome a manner as she can.''

13 Ackroyd, PeterFirst Light. 00262
Hamish Hamilton: London. 1989.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Weird novel: ''fans of the macabre will relish its exhilarating combination of cosmic awe, ancient beings, and creepy underground tunnels''.

''FIRST LIGHT (1989) 'is not the darkest of Peter Ackroyd's novels (Hawksmoor has that honor), but fans of the macabre will relish its exhilarating combination of cosmic awe, ancient beings, and creepy underground tunnels, in a humorous suspense story as cleverly paced as a Hitchcock thriller. The story is that the excavation of a neolithic, astronomically aligned grave under the pastoral hills of Dorset, England, coincides with the startling reappearance of ancient stars (including H. P. Lovecraft's Aldebaran) in the night sky. A group of deliciously eccentric characters - archaeologists, astronomers, a stuffy civil servant, a stand-up comic, and vaguely menacing local villagers - converge at the site and collide with each other''.

This is the haunted story of Alan's love for a woman beautiful and voluptuous beyond experience or even imagination, yet at the same time mysterious and disturbing as a pagan goddess. What darkness underlay the bliss and fear she inspired? Like a slowly intensifying August thunderstorm, the dark forces gather in a crescendo of terror''.

''Robert Aickman was perhaps the finest writer of the ghost story in the second half of the 20th century, and although little of his work is pure fantasy - only a few of his 45 or so stories, and neither of his novels, actually take leave of the mundane world in any sense, except as a prelude to death - he is of absorbing interest in our context because he demonstrates the range of meaning that may be extracted from the devices of any form of fantastic literature, when those devices are treated gravely by a writer of high quality. Most of his work is technically supernatural fiction, about which he comments interestingly in his introductions to his Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories series of anthologies. He commonly focuses not upon the entity (usually a ghost) which violates the fabric of reality but upon his richly conceived protagonists as they thrust towards, and sometimes across, thresholds they do not know how to ''read''. They cannot understand the ghost that faces them because that ghost, in the author's most typical stories - like ''Compulsory Games'' (1976 in Frights ed Kirby McCauley) - is a manifestation, a psychic portrait, of their failure to understand their own lives. Having failed to know themselves, his protagonists become frightened unto death by the fragmented images they glimpse across the uncanny threshold'' (John Clute/Encylopedia of Fantasy).

The last, posthumously published collection of stories by Aickman, first published by Victor Gollancz in 1985. The Tartarus Press first printing of 2013 reprinted those five long stories plus a lot more, beginning with a new introduction by Barry Humphries. Also included was the weird novella THE MODEL (posthumously published in 1987), plus Aickman's ''An Essay'' (written on winning the first World Fantasy Award in 1976), additionally this volume includes all seven of his Introductions to the seven volumes in The Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories series which he edited: and finally the six-page ''Robert Remembered'', in which author Ramsey Campbell concludes this volume with memories of his friend. However this Tartarus Press 2nd printing of 2015 also now includes a further two stories, ''The Coffin House'' and ''The Fully-Conducted Tour'', both taken from the 2015 Tartarus Press Aickman collection The Strangers And Other Writings, which went o/p very quickly (more or less by the time of publication) and will NOT be reprinted.

Hardcover.
SF novel. Although (mostly) routine sf (though there are exceptions), most of these Robert Hale titles are very uncommon (with nearly all - if not all - copies going to the thriving library market in the 1970's).

''US stunt rider, rancher and author, extraordinarily prolific in several fields, with more than 900 novels under his own name and 69 identified pseudonyms from 1950 until the mid 1990s, almost always for Robert Hale Limited. Over 600 of these were Westerns, many of them achieving a level of genuine competence; a relative handful of them were sf, which he wrote without particular inspiration. This Time Tomorrow (1963), a grim Future War tale, was published under his own name; further routine space operas are: FOCOLOR (1973) as by Roy Ainsworthy; A Crack in Time (1971), The Undine (1972), Another View (1972), Bannister's Z-Matter (1973) and The Underground Men (1975) as by Mark Carrel; and The Harbinger (1972), The Misplaced Psyche (1973) and Kernel of Death (1973) as by Troy Howard'' (John Clute, Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

55 Alderman, GillThe Archivist: A Black Romance. 07302
Unwin Hyman: London. 1989.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
First volume of her sf Guna series, followed by THE LAND BEYOND (1990).

''began publishing sf with the first two volumes of her Guna sequence - THE ARCHIVIST: A BLACK ROMANCE (1989) and The Land Beyond: A Fable (1990) - which established her very rapidly as a figure of interest in the field. As usual in the Planetary Romance, Guna - the world in which the tales are set - is heavily foregrounded throughout both volumes. Quite similar to Earth - with which the more technologically advanced of its several civilizations have had concourse for many centuries - Guna is perhaps most remarkable for the wide range of relationships found there between the sexes, running from the complex matriarchy depicted in the first volume through Earth-like patterns of repressive patriarchy hinted at broadly in the second. Although it is clearly Alderman's intent, dexterously achieved, to make some Feminist points about male hierarchical thinking, she abstains from creating characters whose consciousnesses are reduced to reflections of these issues. The homosexual male protagonists of The Archivist, for instance, whose long love affair and estrangement provide much of the immediate action of the book, exhibit no ''normal'' resentment at the dominant role of women; and the political revolution fomented by the elder lover has little or nothing to do with sexual politics in any Earthly sense. The long timespan of The Archivist, the Grand Tour evocations of landscape which make up much of its bulk, and its distanced narrative voice mark its author to be a contemplative sf fantasist of the first order. The Land Beyond, a chill book set in a cold part of the planet, is less immediately engaging; but its steeliness adds fibre to the sequence as a whole, which - like Brian W Aldiss's Helliconia sequence and Paul Park's Starbridge Chronicles - stands as a high point of late twentieth-century world-building in sf, a period during which the technological optimism of early similar enterprises had evolved into a rich and sombre pessimism about the capacity of individual heroes and heroines to transcend their engendering cultures'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

57 Aldiss, Brian W.Billion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction. 42420
Weidenfeld & Nicholson: London. 1973.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
340 pages.

''Billion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction (1973), a large survey of sf marked by iconoclasms, enthusiasms, and impatience, is Aldiss's most important nonfiction work as far as the genre is concerned; its central argument - that sf is a child of the intersection of Gothic romance with the Industrial Revolution, and that Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein(1818) is the founding text of the genre, gives profound pleasure as a myth of origin. Though it fails circumstantially to be altogether convincing, its focus on the early nineteenth century, a period during which Western consciousness underwent revolutionary change, remains salutary, as is its downgrading (sometimes intemperate) of twentieth-century American sf. The book was much expanded and, perhaps inevitably, somewhat diluted in effect as Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction (1986) with David Wingrove, which won a Hugo'' (John Clute & David Pringle/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Three volumes: complete set of the Helliconia sf trilogy.

''three massive, thoroughly researched, deeply through-composed tales set on a planet whose primary sun is in an eccentric orbit around another star, so that the planet experiences both small seasons and an eon-long Great Year, during the course of which radical changes afflict the human-like inhabitants. Cultures are born in spring, flourish over the summer, and die with the onset of the generations-long winter. A team from an exhausted Terran civilization observes the spectacle from orbit. Throughout all three volumes, BWA pays homage to various high moments of pulp sf, rewriting several classic action climaxes into a dark idiom that befits Helliconia. As an exercise in world-building, the Helliconia books lie unassailably at the heart of modern sf'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
