Occult thriller: ''one of Blackburn's finest supernatural thrillers with ingenious plot skillfully woven around the legend of the Wandering Jew''. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR TO UK HORROR ANTHOLOGIST HUGH LAMB/''to the Lambs from the Blackburns''. With Hugh Lamb's signature above and his initials HL rubber-stamped at the top corner of the inside rear cover. The 1972 Jonathan Cape hardcover is uncommon, but this 1974 paperback is rare.

''UK writer and antiquarian book dealer, author of many novels whose ambience of horror derives from a calculated use of material from several genres, including sf. His use of sf is usually borderline, but often ingenious, and though even his most straightforward novels are prone to internal generic mutations from one form to another, it would be unduly stretching matters to describe him as a genuine sf writer'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
