Robert McCammon, author of the popular Matthew Corbett historical thrillers (Speaks the Nightbird, Mister Slaughter), now gives us something new and completely unexpected: The Five, a contemporary novel as vivid, timely, and compelling as anything he has written to date. The Five tells the story of an eponymous rock band struggling to survive on the margins of the music business. As they move through the American Southwest on what might be their final tour together, the band members come to the attention of a damaged Iraq war veteran, and their lives are changed forever. The narrative that follows is a riveting account of violence, terror, and pursuit set against a credible, immensely detailed rock and roll backdrop. It is also a moving meditation on loyalty and friendship, on the nature and importance of families those we are born into and those we create for ourselves and on the redemptive power of the creative spirit. Written with wit, elegance, and passionate conviction, The Five lays claim to new imaginative territory, and reaffirms McCammon's position as one of the finest, most unpredictable storytellers of our time.

Ashcroft, British Columbia: Ashcroft BC ( previously Pennyffordd, Chester, UK ): Ash Tree Press, 2001, 1st Edition, First Printing, 2001. -----------hardcover, a Fine copy in a Fine dustjacket, --In Annual Macabre 2000, Jack Adrian collected together nine stories of the supernatural which were published during the Golden Age of the British fiction magazine, a period which ended with the outbreak of war in 1914. For the current volume, he has uncovered another thirteen stories published during the Indian summer of the weekly and monthly fiction periodicals: a time which began early in the 1920s and was again curtailed -with brutal finality -by the outbreak of another war, in 1939. --Only one of the stories included in Annual Macabre 2001 has appeared in bookform; the other twelve have remained hidden in the pages of magazines since their first publication more than sixty years ago. As Adrian points out in his introduction, many of the authors are better known for their writing in other genres; but all show a sure touch in their handling of the supernatural, the macabre, and the horrific, in settings which range from America to the seemingly tranquil coast of Ireland, and from England to the legend-haunted countryside of Japan. --CONTENTS: Introduction by Jack Adrian; 'I Will Never Leave You' by Marjorie Bowen; The Corner House by Elisabeth Kyle; The Tarletan Dress by F.

Ashcroft, British Columbia: Ashcroft BC ( previously Pennyffordd, Chester, UK ): Ash Tree Press, 1999, 1st Edition, First Printing, 1999. -----------hardcover, a Fine copy in a Fine dustjacket, --The third of Ash-Tree's annual gatherings of rare macabre stories. This year, as at perhaps no other point in history, the focus is very much on 'time' as we prepare to turn the calendar over from one millennium to the next. The concept of time -shifting, changing, distorting, playing tricks with hapless humans -is generally thought of as the preserve of science fiction and fantasy writers; but it plays a part in many a ghost story, too. Indeed, in his introduction, editor Jack Adrian argues that 'all, or at any rate most, ghost stories contain elements of time-distortion'. --In these six stories -originally published between 1908 and 1940 -time, in all its shifting confusion, plays a part, blurring the lines between past and present, reality and illusion. The characters in these tales find themselves caught in a shadowy world in which time itself seems to have no meaning: where acts from the past return to haunt the present, and where the shadow of what is yet to pass mocks those who would try to change it. --Contents: Introduction by Jack Adrian; 'The House That Was Lost' by Tom Gallon; 'Tight and Loose' by Neil Gow; 'The Man Who Was Tomorrow' by Eric Ambrose; 'Newsreel' by W.J.

Yet all six -W. Somerset Maugham, Arthur Ransome, Ford Madox Ford, E.C.Bentley, Hilaire Belloc, and John Buchan -are undisputed masters of the narrative form, and here -in 'Told in the Inn at Algeciras', 'Post-Mortem', 'The Medium's End', 'Exactly As It Happened', 'The Unpleasant Room', and 'Ho! The Merry Masons' respectively -bring a new vitality to an old medium, and prove that literary renown is no obstacle to telling a gripping and chilling story. --These six tales, assembled and introduced by Jack Adrian, have remained out of print since their initial publication as many as ninety years ago -both the Maugham and the Buchan qualify as 'lost' stories, since neither appears in their respective author's bibliographies. Elegantly told by some of the finest writers of the century, the tales in Annual Macabre 1998 make perfect reading for dark winter nights. --Contents: Introduction by Jack Adrian; 'Told in the Inn at Algeciras' by W.

TWO VOLUMES: Binscombe Tales, Sinister Saxon Stories -with More Binscombe Tales, Sinister Sutangali Stories -by John Whitbourn -book i and ii / Ash Tree Press

By Whitbourn, John; Introduction By Professor E Griffiths / Ash Tree Press

Ashcroft, British Columbia: Ashcroft BC ( previously Pennyffordd, Chester, UK ): Ash Tree Press, 1998, 1999, 1st Edition, First Printing, 1998. -----------TWO VOLUMES (ONE SHIPPING CHARGE), hardcovers, both are Fine copies in Fine dustjackets, --SAXON = There is a real place called Binscombe, located in the south-east of England; but these tales are not about that Binscombe. Instead they concern another Binscombe, linked to the first by subtle -but invisible -bridges of ‘what if?’. This other Binscombe is a place rich in history, where strangers are welcome, but not always safe; a place where watching a video is not as harmless a pursuit as it might seem, where waiting for the bus may take much longer than expected, and where churchgoers are advised to pay very close attention during the midnight service on Christmas Eve. It is, in short, a place which takes its history very seriously: and with good reason, as the unwary are apt to find out to their cost. --No one takes Binscombe and its history more seriously than Mr Disvan, whose encyclopaedic knowledge of the village and its past seems to have been acquired through more than simply reading history books. We see Mr Disvan and Binscombe life through the eyes of Mr Oakley, a newcomer whose family has long had roots there, and who thus proves the truth of a local saying: ‘They always come back’. This local connection gives Mr Oakley an opportunity to see some of the stranger side of life in Binscombe, with Mr Disvan as his guide; but it also shows him that once you come back, it isn’t always possible to leave again. --John Whitbourn’s Binscombe Tales have been entertaining readers since 1987. This, the first in a two-volume set from Ash-Tree Press, which will collect all the tales in the saga, contains fifteen stories, seven of which are published here for the first time. --Jacket art by Alan Hunter. --Contents: Introscript by John Whitbourn; Introduction by Professor E. Griffiths; ‘Another Place’; ‘Wating for a Bus’; ‘Till Death Do Us Part’; ‘’Only One Careful Owner’; ‘All Roads Lead to Rome’; ‘The Will to Live’; ‘Hello Dolly’; ‘Reggie Suntan’; ‘Here Is My Resignation’; ‘A Video Nasty, or, The Sins of the Fathers’; ‘Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Most Men’; ‘Binscombe Jihad’; ‘His Holiness Commands’; ‘Roots’; ‘The More it Changes ///MORE = The charters of Æthelbad . . . confirm Bede's statement about the extent of his powers. An original, dated 736, describes him as 'king not only of the Mercians but also of all provinces which are called by the general name Sutangli, that is South English . --What could be more appropriate than that the continuing chronicles of Binscombe, that most English of English towns in the south of the country, should be published on the National Day—St George's Day [1999]? --Binscombe has a long and well-documented past. John Whitbourn's stories, however, concern another Binscombe: one which is a slightly sinister, far less reassuring place than its real counterpart. In this Binscombe, things are seldom what they seem, and people should not be taken at face value. --No one has learned this lesson more thoroughly than Mr Oakley, a relative newcomer to the area whose family has long had roots there. It is through his eyes that we see life in Binscombe, and encounter the decidedly strange people and events contributing to everyday life in this most singular of towns. It is a place where a trip to the seaside is not always the innocent, fun-filled affair it may seem; where the simple act of buying a desk is fraught with danger; and where Oliver Cromwell is much more than simply a name from the history books. --Most mysterious of all, perhaps, is the identity of Mr Disvan, Oakley's guide to life in Binscombe. It is an identity which is finally revealed in the final story, 'Up from the Cellar' or 'England Expects!', which concludes (possibly) the Binscombe Tales and proves the truth of the local saying that 'They always come back'. --More Binscombe Tales: Sinister Sutangli Stories -a companion to 1998's Binscombe Tales: Sinister Saxon Stories -contains the final twelve stories in the Binscombe saga, five of which are published here for the first time. There is also an introduction by the author, and a lengthy afterword in which he discusses plots and ideas for several Binscombe Tales which will never, alas, be written. --Contents: Foreword; 'An Overview and Cheerio, or A Sutangli Speaks!' by John Whitbourn; 'It Has Been Said . . .'; 'No Truce With Kings'; 'Let the Train Take the Strain'; 'Rollover Night'; 'Yankee Go Home'; 'Canterbury's Dilemma'; 'Every Little Breeze . . .'; 'Oh, I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside (Within Reason)'; 'But After This, the Judgement'; 'It'll All be Over by Christmas'; 'I Could a Tale Unfold'; 'Up from the Cellar, or, England Expects!'; 'Stories I'll Never Get Round to Writing' any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED///.
