6 Attanasio, A. A.Solis. 04725
Hodder & Stoughton: London. 1994.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

'' sf novel whose plot and pacing initially remind one of an early Keith Laumer adventure, but which expands upon and darkens its origins in space opera; the protagonist, after a millennium of cryonicsleep, awakens into an extremely complex and cruel world run by AIs, where he is used for pornography and enslaved before his eventual rescue. It could not be said that AAA is a tempered writer; but the splurge and dance of his prose can be, at times, enormously enlivening'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

7 Attanasio, A. A.The Dragon And The Unicorn. 04979
Hodder & Stoughton: London. 1994.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
First volume in an Arthurian fantasy series: followed by ARTHOR and THE PERILOUS ORDER. Preceded the US edition by over two years.

''with THE DRAGON AND THE UNICORN (1994 UK) and Arthor (1995) he began an ambitious Arthurian sequence: the first volume presents a complex cosmogony in which the unicorn - a noncorporeal creature of the sun - takes on bodily form only when caught in bondage to the Earth. The figure of Merlin gradually emerges as an avatar of a spirit or demon immemorially appalled by matter. The second volume, which focuses on ''Arthor'', is bound more explicitly to traditional Arthurian material, though Arthor himself is an unusually brutal figure. Morgeu enters the picture, and there is much adversarial magic, with Merlin opposing her. A florid quest-like urgency permeates all of the author's work; indeed, most of his protagonists are themselves driven by quest imperatives, usually the need to discover their own identities. The wide range of his work may have kept him from wide fame within the field, as may an erratic style (eloquence and bathos frequently abut within single paragraphs); there remains, however, a sense that this rich variousness will, sooner or later, become fully recognized'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia Of Fantasy).

9 Attanasio, A. A.Wyvern. 04079
Grafton Books: London. 1989.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Fantasy/sf novel.

''his novels are generally sf - he is best-known for the Radix Tetrad sequence beginning with Radix (1981) - but the exorbitant intensity of his rendering of the visible world brings them at times close to magic realism. Set mostly in the South Pacific in the early 17th century, WYVERN (1988), which is fantasy, follows the rite of passage into adulthood of a blond Tarzan-like enfant sauvage whom the ''natives'' of Borneo think is a demon and who is raised by a soul-catcher sorcerer to fulfil prophecies; in the event he becomes a pirate, shifting en passant from the realm of fantasy to the realm of historical romance'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
