Star Book of Horror No. 1 (two copies with variant covers).

Price: £15.00

Quantity: 1 available

Grading: Covers creased, a good copy and a fine (unread) copy.


Two volumes. Horror anthology: includes ''Now Wakes the Sea'' by J. G. Ballard. With a short general introduction by the editor and specific introduction to each story. Hugh Lamb edited two volumes 1975-1976: both are uncommon. A bit of a mystery here: as both these copies for sale have exactly the same title page, copyright page and contents, both dated 1975, but have quite different cover art. However the price on one is 45p and the price on the other is 50p, and each does have a different ISBN number on the copyright page. But there is no mention anywhere of the latter being a reprint. However the ISBN number on the rear cover is a different one to that on the copyright page, so my guess is that it is not technically a reprint, but unsold copies of volume 1 had their covers stripped in 1976 to coincide with the publication of volume 2, and given new covers with new artwork, price and ISBN number, the new cover art ''matching'' that of volume 2 just published. Does anyone care?
