About This Item

London, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Toronto: Simon & Schuster, 1988. Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed by Stableford. The first of Stableford's novels to engage his project of reconstructing the universe so that the classic tropes and motifs of horror fiction fit the demands of scientific rationalism. "Alternative-history vampire novel in which the ruling elite are vampires greatly envied by the mortal masses, who seek to share their miraculous healing powers and immortality. The vampire aristocracy of the court of Richard the Lionhearted zealously guards its secrets and keeps mortals unenlightened and hostage to superstitions of supernatural evil until scientist Edmund Cordery invents a microscope that allows him to investigate the biological basis of vampirism." - Stefan Dziemianowicz in Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-344. Runner-up for the 1989 Arthur C. Clarke Award for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1066. See Cox 250. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#156047)
