METROPHAGE ..

Kadrey, Richard

London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1988.. Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. The inhabitants of a broken down twenty-first century Los Angeles run by gangsters are threatened by a deadly new disease, apparently a biological weapon which has somehow got loose. "Not wholly assimilated influences including cyberpunk as a whole and J. G. Ballard in particular give an element of pastiche to his early work, including his first novel, METROPHAGE (1988); but the latter transcends it in a vigorous and inventive tale of a mean-streetwise drug pusher's problems in a near-future Los Angeles that is being eaten alive by urban decay, police corruption and corporate cynicism. It reads like a supercharged arcade game that appalls even its creator ..." - Peter Nicholls and John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-222. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#152907)

Erfurt und Leipzig: Thüringer Verlagsanstalt H. Bartholomäus, [1927].. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-155 [156] [157] [158-160: ads], 18 figures in the text, original tan wrappers printed in red and brown, all edges untrimmed. First edition. A largely nonfiction study of Hanns Hörbiger's Glazial-Kosmogonie (Glacial Cosmogony) theory that includes a SF novella inspired by his ideas. Welteislehre (WEL; "World Ice Theory" or "World Ice Doctrine") is a discredited cosmological concept proposed by Hörbiger, an Austrian engineer and inventor, who received his ideas in a "vision" in 1894. According to his theory, ice was the basic substance of all cosmic processes, and ice moons, ice planets, and the "global ether" (also made of ice) had determined the entire development of the universe. Hörbiger's monumental 790-page GLAZIAL-KOSMOGONIE, written in collaboration with an amateur astronomer, is one of the great classics in the history of crackpot science. Hörbiger's ideas acquired many fanatical followers and, in addi ... Read more

GATS. DREI AKTE

Kaiser, Georg

  • Quantity available: 1
Potsdam: Gustav Kiepenheuer Verlag, 1925.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-102 [103] [104: ad] [note: first leaf is a blank], original blue-green boards printed in black, top edge stained brown. First edition. A utopian play about the discovery of Gats, a substance to solve Earth's uncontrolled population growth. Today Kaiser (1878-1945) is considered one of the most important exponents of Expressionism. His most important plays are those which comprise his Gas Trilogy, DIE KORALLE (1917), GAS (1918) and GAS II (1920), in which the increasing dehumanization of mankind leads to the ultimate cataclysm. Some tanning and warping to boards, a very good copy with the rare wraparound advertising band. (#152267)

London: Jonathan Cape, [1930].. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-114 [115] [116: blank], original blue-gray patterned boards, spine stamped in gold, publisher's device stamped in blind on rear panel, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. Although there is no printed dedication in the book, this copy is the dedication copy with a signed inscription by Kallas to British author Edward Garnett on the half title page: "To / Edward Garnett / from / Aino Kallas." Accompanied by two handwritten letters from Kallas to Garnett, the first, dated 15 November 1929, asking for Garnett's permission to dedicate the English translation to him, the second, dated 28 February 1930, an anguished letter saying she had just received the first copies and Cape had not printed the dedication to Garnett in the book. A novel of lycanthropy unaccountably dropped from the 1978 Bleiler Checklist. Although herself a Finn, Kallas wrote mainly about her husband's country, Estonia. These two countries, together with Hungary, belong to the Finno-Ugric lan ... Read more

Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-114 [115] [116: blank], original blue-gray patterned boards, spine stamped in gold, publisher's device stamped in blind on rear panel, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. "The vigor and inventiveness of the pulp stories found few echoes in the werewolf novels of the 1930s, most of which were routine potboilers revolving around stock situations. One of the few to rise above the general mediocrity was THE WOLF'S BRIDE (1930) by the Finnish author Madame Aino Kallas. Imitating the style and legends of the old Norse chronicles, it tells of the tragic events that occur after Pridiik the hunter takes the lovely Aolo for his bride." - Frost, The Essential Guide to Werewolf Literature, pp. 144-45. A high point of early werewolf fiction unaccountably dropped from the 1978 Bleiler Checklist. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1767. Bleiler (1948), p. 166. Reginald 08046. Covers mottled, page edges dusty, a very good copy in very good dust jacket with age-d ... Read more
