BONE SONG

By Meaney, John

London, U.K.: Gollancz, 2007. First British Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Welcome to Death's City. Lieutenant Donal Connor has been given the most bizarre of new cases. Four famous stage performers have died in recent months, thee of them in state capitals within Transifica, the fourth in far Zurinam. And now the idolised Diva, Maria de Livnova is coming to Tristopolis. Donal's boss is determined that nothing like this is ever to happen in his city. Connor is to have anything he needs as long the Diva lives. And so begins a dark investigation through a world where corpses give up their pyschic energy in the massive necrofulx generators that power the city, where gargoyles talk, where wraiths work in slavery, a world of the dead where corruption is alive. This is an extraordinary SF novel set in alternate universe quite unlike any imagined in SF before; a universe where magic and the supernatural and the undead are given a scientific rationale and horrfyingly plausible rationale. The novel's setting, Tristopolis, is the ultimate noir city; an immense baroque creation of haunted stone skyscrapers, black metal and city-wide catacombs. Its hero, Donal Connor, is immensely likeable and easy to identify with. Even once he's dead. As new, unread copy, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. L72

In the year 2018, Sergeant Sue Smith of the Edinburgh constabulary is called in on a special case.

The suspects are a band of marauding orcs, with a dragon in tow for fire support, and the bank is located within the virtual reality land of Avalon Four. For Smith, the investigation seems pointless. But she soon realizes that the virtual world may have a devastating effect in the real one-and that someone is about to launch an attack upon both.

AXIS

By Wilson, Robert Charles

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Tor/Tom Doherty Associates, LLC, 2007. First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Wildly praised by readers and critics alike, Robert Charles Wilson's SPIN won science fiction's highest honor, the Hugo Award for Best Novel. Now, in SPIN's direct sequel, Wilson takes us to the "world next door"--the planet engineered by the mysterious Hypotheticals to support human life, and connected to Earth by way of the Arch that towers hundreds of miles over the Indian Ocean. Humans are colonizing this new world--and, predictably, fiercely exploiting its resources, chiefly large deposits of oil in the western deserts of the continent of Equatoria. Lise Adams is a young woman attempting to uncover the mystery of her father's disappearance ten years earlier. Turk Findley is an ex-sailor and sometimes drifter. They come together when an infall of cometary dust seeds the planet with tiny remnant Hypothetical machines. Soon, this seemingly hospitable world will become very alien indeed--as the nature of time is once again twisted, by entities unknown. As new, unread copy, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. L72

GIFTS

By Le Guin, Ursula K.

Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.: Harcourt Childrens Books, 2004. First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. In this well-realized fantasy, the people of the Uplands have unusual and potentially dangerous abilities that can involve the killing or maiming of others. Gry can communicate with animals, but she refuses to use her gift to call creatures to the hunt, a stance her mother doesn't understand. The males in Orrec's line have the power of unmaking--or destroying--other living things. However, because his mother is a Lowlander, there is concern that this ability will not run true to him. When his gift finally manifests itself, it seems to be uncontrollable. His father blindfolds him so that he will not mistakenly hurt someone, and everyone fears him. Meanwhile, Ogge Drum, a greedy and cruel landowner, causes heartache for Orrec and his family. There is a strong sense of foreboding throughout the novel. The characters, who are well rounded and believable, often fail to understand the extent of the responsibility that comes with great power. In the end, Gry and Orrec come to recognize the true nature of their gifts and how best to use them. Readers can enjoy this story as a suspenseful struggle between good and evil, or they can delve deeper and come away with a better understanding of the choices that all individuals must make if they are to realize their full potential. An excellent choice for discussion and contemplation. (Bruce Anne Shook, School Library Journal). Fine, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. Grade 7 & Up. L62

SCREAMS: Three Novels of Suspense: The Will to Kill, Firebug, the Star Stalker

By Bloch, Robert

San Rafael, CA / Lancaster, PA: Underwood-Miller, Inc., 1989. First Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. SCREAMS marks the first hardcover publication of three unusual tales of psychological suspense: The Will to Kill, Firebug, and The Star Stalker. The anguished protagonists of The Will to Kill and Firebug struggle (often unsuccessfully) against the dark and repressed elements of their own psyches. The Star Stalker shares a somewhat similar plot: an anguished killer haunts the protagonist and his social circle. But instead of those earlier novels' guilt-ridden, intensely internal focus, The Star Stalker's narrative is more concerned with the outer world--in this case Hollywood in the Golden era. Bloch's thirty year career as a screenwriter (most famously for PSYCHO) lends an authenticity to this behind-the-scenes novel, the coming of age of a young screenwriter. Bloch established a uniquely mordant approach to the macabre. His writing has influenced the modern psychological horror novel. As new, unread copy in red cloth boards, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. MODLIT1
