A DEEPER SEA

Jablokov, Alexander

New York: An AvoNova Book William Morrow and Company, Inc., [1992].. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Jablokov's second novel, preceded by CARVE THE SKY (1991), "was a very much harsher exploration of a near future venue, set during a savage world war in which dolphins with implants are extensively (and brutally) used to reconnoiter and to destroy. The denouement once again invokes an outward-bound spaceship, and is rich in images of escape and resolution." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#93419)

DEEPDRIVE

Jablokov, Alexander

[New York]: Avon Eos [1998].. Octavo, boards. First edition. Hard SF set in the twenty-first century when planets and moons of the Solar System have been settled by eleven extraterrestrial races which reached human space with faster-than-light drives designed to self-destruct after use, taking the secret of their construction with them. When a renegade Vronnan crashes on Venus and is placed in "protective custody," a group of mercenaries, thrown together by chance and failure, determines to break him out and learn his secrets for themselves. "DEEPDRIVE (1998), Jablokov's last work before he ceased writing seriously for at least half a decade, engages very fully in the intricacies of the new space opera of the 1990s, with a complex quest plot and a passel of Alien races who activate the longing for exogamy typical of recent authors in this mode; the writer whose influence is most visible here -- and who may also have prefigured some of the novel's furious interactions between Sense of Wonder action and meta ...

THE HEROES OF SMOKEOVER ..

Jacks, L[awrence] P[earsall]

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: George H. Doran, n.d. [1926].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-286 [287-288: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original green cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, publisher's monogram stamped in blind on front panel, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First U.S. edition. The fiction of L. P. Jacks, UK philosopher and academic, "is idiosyncratic and often used to convey his philosophical ideas, frequently related to metaphysics" (Clute and Grant). The stories set in "Smokeover," an imaginary industrial city of immense size that is controlled by convention, boasts of its idealism but worships industry, criticize life through the mouths of its fictional inhabitants. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Reginald 07739. Not in Day. Not in Tuck (1974). A fine copy in defective printed dust jacket with shallow chipping along top edges and three-quarters of the spine panel missing. (#134196)

THE SUNDIAL

Jackson, Shirley

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, [1958].. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Signed on the front free endpaper by Jackson. THE SUNDIAL, "one of the most bizarre works in Jackson's oeuvre, seems to have been a prelude to WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE: the Halloran family becomes convinced that the rest of the world is going to end, and the narrative tone suggests that this belief might in fact be correct; the novel is occupied with the family's preparations to continue life after the rest of humanity has ceased to exist. Both these novels, as well as a number of short stories -- especially the celebrated 'One Ordinary Day, with Peanuts' (1955) -- display the misanthropy that is a central element of Jackson's work, and one which she conveys with consummate skill ... All Jackson's work -- with the exception, perhaps of THE BIRD'S NEST, a clumsy novel about multiple personality -- is subtle, powerful and flawlessly written; it reveals Jackson's keen insight into human personality and human so ...

THE MAGIC MANTLE AND OTHER STORIES ..

Jackson, Stephen (pseudonym of John Stevenson)

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: M. S. Greene & Company, [1903].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-333 [334-336: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], inserted frontispiece with illustration by W. F. Lamb, original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed. First edition. "Three short stories (two of which are supernatural, but negligible) plus the title story, which is a novella-length Arthurian fantasy, steeped in magic -- and quite good, as well as seemingly unfamiliar to Arthurian bibliographers. This novella has two parts, the first set in the sunset days of Arthur's court, the second centuries later. The second part is flaccid, but the first is a self-contained unit and a not unworthy addition to the Matter of Britain. As a bitter valedictory, Merlin accuses the court of immorality and, when attacked by Guinevere, conjures up his familiar sprite, Aglaion, to help him prove his claims. The sprite produces four magical objects (including the mantle of the title, a diaphanous gown) which will function bea ... Read more

First edition. A heroic fantasy chronicling events in an imaginary kingdom of the Middle East, culminating in the visit of the wise men to Bethlehem. "A highly imaginative novel of an antediluvian civilization, an unknown people versed in sorceries long-forgotten. Certainly among the forerunners of today's sword and sorcery epics." - Stuart A.

PIPE DREAMS & TWILIGHT TALES

Jackson, Birdsall

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: F. M. Buckles & Company, 1902.. Octavo, original pictorial green cloth stamped in red, dark green, white. black and gold. First edition. "A mix of poems and stories, at least three of which have fantastic relevance. 'The Wicked King and the Good Queen' is an ironic fairy tale with a pleasantly forthright cynicism cutting the underlying message of how intolerable Good and Evil are to each other, and with plenty of magic to keep things from getting dull. 'The Mysterious Disappearance of Mayhew' is a tale about witch doctors in a contemporary poor black neighborhood. 'The Realization' is a powerful study of old age mellowing past ripeness into a passivity that leads to disappointment, despair and madness, when an elderly couple sell their farm to a developer who turns it into a golf course." - Robert Eldridge. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p. 45. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 J-4. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Bookplate affixed to front pa ...
