''a gentleman vigilante from the pages of a 1930's pulp magazine materialises in present-day Manhattan ready to orchestrate a mass-murder that will at long last reconcile the living with the dead. Valentine Dyson, characteristically dressed in a tuxedo and opera hat, a blue flower in his buttonhole, is infamous among pulp scholars for being the most vicious of the cloaked avengers featured in such magazines. His mysterious awakening from the yellowed pages of Strange Thrills pulp magazine coincides with a car crash that leaves his creator Norbert Read, an old man now, in a coma''.

2 Atkins, PeterMorningstar, or The Vampires Of Summer. 15691
HarperCollins: London. 1992.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The author's first novel. Vampires.

''the best first novel I've read in a long time: an audacious and heady mixture of vampires, ghosts, goddesses and psychopaths'' (Neil Gaiman). ''Atkins's background as a writer of artistic splatter movies - he worked on the first Wishmaster film and three Hellraiser films--is obvious in this fast-paced horror-suspense novel, first published in the U.K. in 1992. A serial killer who signs the word Morningstar in the blood of his decapitated victims is stalking the streets of San Francisco. Donovan Moon, a flat-broke freelance journalist, gets a tip from a friend that Morningstar's crimes are marked by one other notable detail: his victims are all staked through the heart, killed as legend says vampires must be slain. A fortuitous phone call takes Moon to the penthouse apartment of Jonathan Frost, highly respected real estate developer--who also claims to be Morningstar, aka Matador (the Spanish for ''slayer''). Frost dreams of a hunter on his trail, and fears he will not survive their meeting. He offers Moon $50,000 to write his life story if he dies'' (Publishers Weekly).


Page edges a little browned, a fine copy in an almost fine dustjacket.
