7 Miller, Jr., Walter M. (& Terry Bisson)Saint Leibowitz And The Wild Horse Woman. 00838
Orbit: London. 1997.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Sequel to the classic sf novel, A CANTICLE FOR LEIBOWICZ (1960). Preceded the USA edition by a few weeks. Note: although not credited on the cover or title page, Terry Bisson edited the manuscript extensively for final publication, and rewrote some of the text.

''Walter Miller returns to a world struggling to transcend a terrifying legacy of darkness, as one man undertakes an odyssey of adventure and discovery that promises to alter the destiny of humankind. Isolated in Leibowitz Abbey, Brother Blacktooth St. George suffers a crisis of faith, torn between his vows and his Nomad upbringing, between the Holy Virgin and visions of the Wild Horse Woman of his people. At the brink of disgrace and expulsion from his order, the young monk is championed by a powerful cardinal who has plans for him. Blacktooth sets out on a journey across a landscape still scarred by the long-ago Flame Deluge, a land divided by nature, politics, and war. He will find horrors and wonders, sins of the flesh . . . and love. As he encounters and reencounters a beautiful but forbidden mutant named Ędrea, he begins to wonder: is a she-devil, the Holy Mother, or the Wild Horse Woman herself?''.

8 Bisson, TerryTalking Man (inscribed by the author). 09189
Arbor House: NY. 1986.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SAF novel, the author's second book. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR IN 1995.

''with his second novel, TALKING MAN (1986), he comes into his full powers as a novelist whose narrative voice is urgently and lucidly that of a teller of tales. The figure at the heart of Talking Man -- who does not talk -- seems at the story's beginning to be nothing more than a bemusedly eccentric rural Kentuckian with a knack for repairing motors; as the novel develops into a quest west and then north across a USA more and more radically transformed the further the search proceeds, the talking man takes on qualities of Trickster and Redeemer, and eventually seems to contain the world's reality in his hands. The tale closes back home, but home is now an American South changed magically into a clement Utopia'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
