''What is Luck? If it exists at all, where does it come from, and how does it operate? Is it a supernatural force? A genetic gift? Or a quantum phenomenon, a knack for adjusting probability in just the right way? Canny Kilcannon, heir to the earldom of Credesdale in Yorkshire, is an extremely lucky man, the scion of a long dynasty of extremely lucky men. Unlike his dour and cautious ancestors, he believes in taking material advantage of his hereditary good fortune: as a playboy gambler, he cruises the casinos of the world, winning steadily yet cleverly and calculatedly, so as not to draw undue attention. But a particular defiance of the odds in Monte Carlo is noticed, both by a criminal gang and by Lissa Lo, a beautiful woman who may somehow share Canny's luck. As he returns to Credesdale, to the bedside of his dying father, Canny is increasingly aware that powerful forces are closing in on him. But Canny is a resourceful man, and astute at judging the odds in any situation; as he becomes Lord Credesdale, he plays the game of life with the same tactical brilliance he showed in Monte Carlo. Faced with challenges both domestic and acutely menacing-the dilemma of how to continue and strengthen his family line, the need to fight off foreign mafiosi and alluring romantic blandishments all at once-he is well equipped, but events may be moving beyond even his capacity to control. The ways of Chance are approaching an apocalyptic crossroads, and life as Canny knows it could be coming to an end''.

6 Stableford, BrianThe Angel of Pain. 06351
Simon & Schuster: London. 1991.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Sequel to The Werewolves of London (1990) and followed by The Carnival of Destruction (1994). INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR.

''in The Werewolves of London (1990) and its sequels THE ANGEL OF PAIN (1991) and The Carnival of Destruction (1994), the first two set in a 19th-century UK and the third reflecting the events of World War 1, the author appropriates further material from other genres, creating a sequence in which werewolves, bred by primordial godling-like creatures at the dawn of time, participate in an apocalyptic - and thoroughly discussed - testing of the nature of reality'' (David Pringle/Encyclopedia of SF).

8 Stableford, BrianThe Blind Worm. 07896
Sidgwick & Jackson: London. 1970.
First hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Published earlier the same year as one half of an Ace Double paperback. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''his first novel, Cradle of the Sun (1969), a quest story set in the far future, is notable for its colourful imagery. THE BLIND WORM (1970), hastily written, is in the same vein. In these early works, and in most of his subsequent sf novels, the author put his knowledge of biology to good use, constructing a long series of outrageous but plausible ecologies whose intricacy sometimes overwhelmed the space-opera formats to which he generally adhered over the first fifteen years of his career'' (David Pringle & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

9 Stableford, BrianThe Werewolves Of London (inscribed & dated by the author). 25061
Simon & Schuster: London. 1990.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Werewolf novel, first in a trilogy: followed by THE ANGEL OF PAIN (1991) and THE CARNIVAL OF DESTRUCTION (1994). THIS COPY INSCRIBED AND DATED (12th July 1990) BY THE AUTHOR AT TIME OF PUBLICATION.

'' In The Werewolves of London (1990) and its sequels The Angel of Pain (1991) and The Carnival of Destruction, the first two set in a 19th-century UK and the third reflecting the events of World War 1, the author appropriates further material from other genres, creating a sequence in which werewolves, bred by primordial godling-like creatures at the dawn of time, participate in an apocalyptic -- and thoroughly discussed -- testing of the nature of reality. With these novels, and with the sharp tales assembled in Sexual Chemistry: Sardonic Tales of the Genetic Revolution (coll 1991), he suddenly became a writer whose fiction befitted his intelligence, for in much of his earlier work a certain tone of chill indifference had tended to baulk the reader's identification'' (John Clute & Peter Nicholls/The Encyclopedia of SF).
