MASTERS OF THE WEIRD TALE: Edgar Allan Poe
Perhaps the finest, certainly one of the earliest, writers of classic weird tales, Edgar Allan Poe is sometimes overshadowed by 20th century practitioners. Nevertheless, his handling of psychological depth is unmatched in the field.
This major collection features all of Poe’s horror, detective, and science fiction, and includes the complete Poe illustrations of Harry Clarke, Fritz Eichenberg, Gustave Doré, Virgil Finlay, Gahan Wilson, and Arthur Rackham, among others, including some new and fine color paintings by Swiss-artist Gwabryel. Bound in three-piece cloth with ribbon marker, translucent overlays, and enclosed in a cloth slipcase.
CONVERSATIONS WITH THE WEIRD TALES CIRCLE
Conversations with the Weird Tales Circle is a massive, oversize, celebration of the lives of H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Frank Belknap Long, Seabury Quinn, E. Hoffmann Price, Henry Kuttner, C.L. Moore, Lee Brown Coye, Hannes Bok, August Derleth, Edmond Hamilton, Manly Wade Wellman, Fritz Leiber, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Donald Wandrei, Mary Elizabeth Counselman, and many others. Each writer has their own section in the book, complete with a custom drawing of the author by noted artist Alex McVey.
The sections contain letters and essays by the writers, with many interviews and memoirs about the writers, often by other writers from the Circle. With dozens of color and black & white photographs, and many of the articles never before reprinted (several coming from 1930s and 1940s fanzines that are now very difficult to find), this is an important and illuminating look at a group of people that defined an era. There is also a lengthy article on Weird Tales cover art with full-color reprints on nearly fifty Weird Tales covers, many of them printed at full page size. Essential for every fantasy and horror fan.
The book is a large sewn hardcover measuring 7 × 12 inches, over two inches thick, with 754 pages, with an image by Stephen Hickman printed on the front cover cloth, and black cloth on the spines and back. The book is rounded, with head and tail bands, and a ribbon marker, with black endsheets.
SLOB by Rex Miller
Slob was a momentous book in the field, Rex Miller’s story of the quarter-ton serial killer “Chaingang,” and it inspired a couple sequels. Ray Garton has supplied the introduction, Harry O. Morris provided the cover art. There is also a rare essay by Rex Miller at the back of the book, never before reprinted in book form. Limited to just 200 numbered copies, each book is signed by Ray Garton and Harry O. Morris.
