The Origins: Excerpt From Cemetery For The Living (55 numbered copies printed)., Barreto,  Lima
1 Barreto, LimaThe Origins: Excerpt From Cemetery For The Living (55 numbered copies printed). 42763
Raphus Press: Sao Paulo, Brazil. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Pictorial wrappers.
Limited to 55 numbered copies. 24 page booklet: between the years of 1919 and 1920, Lima Barreto, a remarkable writer from Rio de Janeiro, was institutionalized by force in the infamous National Hospital of Insane; he faced a serious condition of delirium tremens, and the response to this from the health security authorities at the time was the humiliation that began when the patient was transported through the streets of the city. All these experiences were recorded in a diary, later transformed into the novel Cemitério dos Vivos (a possible translation: ''Cemetery for the Living''), an extraordinary narrative experience that remained incomplete, since the death of the author prevented its conclusion. In fact, the book would only be published in 1956, long after the author's passing. However, excerpts were published in the Brazilian magazines in the 1920s, one of them a compilation of the first chapter, THE ORIGINS, presented in the third and last chapbook of the series ''Golden Age of Clairvoyance''. This extraordinary and rare material is introduced by a piece, an Alcebiades Diniz Miguel original short story, ''Sickness'', on the misery and madness unfortunately very common in Brazilian backlands.

''Raphus Press is a publishing house inspired by the private press from the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century, decentered - one axis in Latin America, the other in Europe - whose central focus is the translation of short-form works, little known, outside the usual canon. The translations are accompanied by unusual pieces of fiction as well as galleries of images from the public domain - this material establishes a dialogue with the translated texts, enhancing the impact of these original works on the contemporary reader.

Egaeus Press: UK. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
386 pages: ''a collection of seventeen dark tales & novellas, in which some of today’s finest weird story writers provide previously unpublished work inspired by traditional murder ballads. The results are sometimes enigmatic, sometimes witty, sometimes desperately grim; just like the songs they often appear to belong outside - either before or after - recorded time, in some malleable epoch of blood-drenched mythology. They channel not only these ballads, but also that certain brand of outmoded publication which once revelled so joyfully in all manner of luridness; publications such as The Newgate Calendar, The Illustrated Police News and of course the Victorian Penny Dreadful'' Illustrated with reclaimed images from the original sources''. Contents: Twa Sisters, Ane Swan by Avalon Brantley, The Ballad Box by Alison Littlewood, And Yet Speaketh by Timothy J. Jarvis, Heaven’s Nightblooming Garden by Helen Marshall, The Baby Farmer by Philip Fracassi, The Sweet Princess Prized by Brendan Connell, Black Wedding: A Footnote by Louis Marvick, The Heart is a Mirror for Sinners by Angela Slatter, The Vampyre Trap by Reggie Oliver, The Kink of Human Mildness by Rhys Hughes, In Scarlet Town by Rosanne Rabinowitz, We’ll Never Know by Daniel Mills, Something Close to Grace by Lisa L.

First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Supernatural Southern Gothic horror novel set in Texas at the end of WW2.

''1918. In the dying days of World War I, the Spanish Flu devastates the small town of Incarnation, Texas. The sheriff closes the church and quarantines the dying in the schoolhouse. The townsfolk huddle alone in their houses to avoid infection. Each new day brings fresh corpses. But something worse than the flu is coming. Verge Strömberg, son of the domineering town pastor, is a sickly boy who lives in a world of books. His mother disappeared when he was seven, his older brother ran away. Now his father leaves him to tend a church in another county. That’s when the Muladona begins to visit him. Every night, the Muladona, a doomed soul transformed into the Devil’s mule, visits Verge and forces him to listen to a horrific tale. Each night, as Verge huddles under his bed sheets, the monster’s supernatural tales tear his soul apart. Verge’s search for the demonic creature’s true identity leads him through the dark history of Incarnation, from the murder of the Indians by the Spanish settlers, to the disappearance of his mother. In the end, Verge will have to confront the Muladona alone to rescue the memory of his mother and to save his immortal soul''.

8 Green, Terence M.Barking Dogs. 26991
St. Martin's Press: NY. 1988.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''Canadian teacher and writer who began publishing work of genre interest with ''Of Children in the Foliage''; the story was gathered with further lean and subtle tales in The Woman who is the Midnight Wind (coll 1987). In his short fiction Green, like many Canadian writers, tenders a vision which might be called melancholy humanism. His first novel, BARKING DOGS (1988 US), on the other hand, opens that vision out but, to do so, forcibly transforms Toronto into a mean-streets venue suitable for displays of high-tech weaponry displays by a vengeful cop. In Children of the Rainbow (1992) a descendant of the Bounty mutineers undergoes time-travel stress and imprisonment'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Raphus Press: Sao Paulo, Brazil. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Pictorial wrappers.
Limited to 55 numbered copies. 20 page booklet: opening the ''Golden Age of Clairvoyance'' series of chapbooks by Raphus Press, MONSTERS, a visual essay by Alfred Jarry, published in L'Ymagier issue 2 in 1895. L’Ymagier was a magazine about unusual illustrations and engravings, edited by Remy de Gourmont and Alfred Jarry. Among other extraordinary artists published by this amazing journal, there are names with the stature of Henri Rousseau. In the essay, Jarry, with his personal language and style, analyzed certain pious woodblock prints produced in India and published in Calcutta almanacs. Monsters is introduced by a poetic commentary, a preamble with some narrative meditations on Jarry’s life and career, entitled ''The Impossible Man in the Cockloft at the Fifteenth Arrondissemen'', by Alcebiades Diniz Miguel.

Foreword by Donald Sidney-Fryer: afterword by John Howard.

Leiber maintained that the two texts should be regarded as the same story told at different times. Limited to 350 (unnumbered) hardcover copies.

''the novella stands as Leiber’s vision of 1970s San Francisco: a city imbued with an eccentric vibe and nefarious entities, in which pulp writer Franz Westen uncovers an alternate portrait of the city’s fin de siecle literary set - Ambrose Bierce, Jack London, Clark Ashton Smith - as well as the darker invocations of occultist Thibaut de Castries and a pale brown inhabitant of Corona Heights''.

17 Lorrain, JeanMonsieur de Phocas: Translated From The French With An Introduction And Afterword By Francis Amery (aka Brian Stableford). 39545
Tartarus Press: North Yorkshire. 2015.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
300 pages: 26-page introduction and nine page afterword by Brian Stableford writing as, and indeed translating as, ''Francis Amery''.

''Monsieur de Phocas (1901) has been ranked with Huysmans’ À Rebours (1884) as the summation of the French Decadent Movement. In the novel, Jean Lorrain presents experiences of the darker side of his life in Paris as the adventures of the Duc de Fréneuse (Phocas) and his relationship with the svengaliesque English painter Claudius Ethal. Jean Lorrain, born into a shipping family in Normandy in 1855, changed his name to keep his family out of the literary controversy he courted. In his writing and life he cultivated a kind of fascinated loathing for the decadence of fin de siècle Paris: in the words of Hubert Juin, he ‘loved his epoch to the point of detestation.’ Frances Amery’s sumptuous translation brings to life the grotesque, glittering world of Monsieur de Phocas’s journal, and Amery’s masterly Introduction and Afterword describe Lorrain’s place in Montmartre, Paris and the wider literary world''.

18 Lugones, LeopoldoBlack Mirror (55 numbered copies printed). 42762
Raphus Press: Sao Paulo, Brazil. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Pictorial wrappers.
Limited to 55 numbered copies. 24 page booklet: the black mirror, mythological incarnation of a certain type of communication between distinct spheres of reality, was represented in artistic terms in many ways. The Argentine writer Leopoldo Lugones, celebrated by Jorge Luis Borges as one of its precursors, presented in his short story - El Espejo Negro - a disturbing, fresh mode to represent the black mirror, close to science fiction. This fantastic piece, translated from Spanish, is the second chapbook in the Raphus Press series ''Golden Age of Clairvoyance''. Lugone’s BLACK MIRROR is introduced by an imaginary profile, a meditation on Lugone’s political views entitled ''Sources of Theophany'', an Alcebiades Diniz Miguel creation, and an exquisite gallery of images.

''Raphus Press is a publishing house inspired by the private press from the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century, decentered - one axis in Latin America, the other in Europe - whose central focus is the translation of short-form works, little known, outside the usual canon.

Dancing Tuatara Press Classics Of Science Fiction & Fantasy #11. Collects eleven sf stories: edited and with an introduction by John Pelan.

''pseudonym used by US colour printer Carroll M Capps (1913-1971) in his writing career, which began - after illness forced his retirement - with ''A Pride of Islands'' in May 1960 for If, with which magazine (and its stablemates) he was chiefly associated for the balance of his short career. Much of his fiction concerns itself with Invasions by aliens, notably the Gree stories in If, running from ''Slaves of Gree'' (August 1964 If) to ''A Beachhead for Gree'' (February 1967 If). In general he wrote clearly and excitingly, and his range was still growing at the time of his death; the early truncation of his career was much regretted'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

First edition thus (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
A collection of essays, mystically poetic fragments, and supernatural tales, first published by Rich & Cowan: London in 1936. This new edition adds a 14-page introduction by James Machin.

''a collection of Arthur Machen’s short stories curated by John Gawsworth (aka Fytton Armstrong) in 1936. As well as exhuming some very early tales published in the first half of the 1890s, Gawsworth included Machen’s decadent prose poems from Ornaments in Jade, and later work commissioned by Lady Cynthia Asquith for collections such as The Ghost Book (1926) and Shudders (1929). Among other curious items, The Cosy Room collected ‘The Islington Mystery’, an account of the likely murder of a taxidermist’s wife by her husband; but the highlight of the collection is ‘N’, the only original contribution to The Cosy Room, and perhaps the most interesting and thought-provoking story of Arthur Machen’s later career - a distillation of many ideas he had previously explored, but they are perhaps more perfectly expressed in this tale than in any other''.

Hardcover.
Fantasy/sf novel: alternate history in which Hitler triumphed, first published in 1951. The first Tartarus Press edition of 1999 reprinted the novel plus the 70-page unpublished fantasy story ''The King Of The Lake''. Now this new edition adds three further stories, ''The Sea-Things'', ''Number Fourteen'' and ''The Sacrifice'' - all three stories (together with ''The King Of The Lake'') had also appeared earlier from Tartarus Press in 2002 as THE SACRIFICE AND OTHER STORIES.

''pseudonym of UK writer John W. Wall (1910-1989), a career diplomat for the UK from 1933 until his retirement in 1966. Most of the short stories assembled in Ringstones, and Other Curious Tales (coll 1951) and The Doll Maker, and Other Tales of the Uncanny (coll 1953) are pure fantasy, but the haunting and nightmarish THE SOUND OF HIS HORN (1952) has often been conscripted to the sf ranks by sf critics, for it is partially set in an alternate world, a Germany 100 years after the Nazis have triumphed. In it's evocation of this timeless ruritanian enclave, however, it is a pure fantasy land, ruled over by a charismatic Master Forester (an avatar of Herne the Hunter), where untermensch dissidents are hunted down for sport; the dark, flamboyant imagery of erotic chastisement is startlingly fetishistic'' (Peter Nicholls & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

First edition (& 1st printing).

Preface by publisher Brian J. Showers and introduction by John Edgar Browning and Showers.

''at the time of his death in 1912, Bram Stoker was preparing for publication three volumes of stories. The first, Dracula’s Guest, saw print in 1914; the second and third never manifested. Old Hoggen and Other Adventures is a tantalising possibility of one of these unrealised selections, and the stories in this volume span the author’s entire career. In reading them, one thing becomes clear: adventure and mystery rival even the gothic in Stoker’s literary heart. And yet, one will find among these pages many of the same themes found in Dracula: reverence for the dead, the malice of wicked men, black humour, hidden fortunes, daring bravery, exotic locales, a deep love of the sea, and the creeping intrusion of the supernatural''.

306 pages. Collection of essays. Limited to 300 hardcover copies. MY COPIES SIGNED & DATED BY THE AUTHOR.

''the English landscape was made . . . not just for food and shelter and pleasure, but also for the journey of the soul. There is a field of supernatural stories set in this 'other' country, the country of the spirit. In A Country Still All Mystery, Mark Valentine explores how certain writers have used their fiction to convey the idea of numinous terrain, places where we might at any moment stray into the realms of the unearthly and uncanny. These essays continue similar literary and antiquarian themes to his well-received earlier volume, Haunted By Books (2015). When and where was the last wolf seen in England? Why were certain lonely houses left beyond parish boundaries? Is there a missing book by T.E. Lawrence? What was the secret history of Cope & Fenwick, liturgical publishers? What became of the original Tower of Moab?''.
