Horror novel. Edited by Michael Butterworth. 500 copies printed. Remaining stocks were seized by the Manchester police prior to the 1991 Obscenity case brought against the publishers over the book (and several Meng & Ecker comics), and never returned. Very uncommon hardcover. With a handwritten letter (to me) from Savoy publisher Mike Butterworth dated 12/11/91 which (in part) states ''Geoffrey Robertson QC is defending us (astounding news, which hasn't quite sunk in, he approached us)'': plus a 1991 signed Christmas card (to me) from Savoy Books (with a VERY un-Christmassy illustration and message as would be expected!): plus xerox copies of articles in the Bookseller and Comics International referring to the forthcoming Obscenity case.

Price = 395.00 GBP
