LAST CALL for some of our Signed/Slipcased Editions

We took inventory last month and quantities are getting VERY LOW on our deluxe autographed editions. One of these is as low a ONE copy!  These editions are signed by the author of the book and/or the introducer (who is a recipient of a Grandmaster or Lifetime Achievement award—or both!), some of whom are no longer with us. Act soon if you’re considering the following:

Signed by Ramsey Campbell (introduction), Raymond Swanland (cover artist), Stephen Haffner (editor), and bears a Manly Wade Wellman autograph from a cancelled check. BONUS: ROMANCE IN BLACK: an exclusive chapbook of all five “Judge Pursuivant” stories illustrated by George Evans and a John Pelan introduction. $150


Signed by Hugh B. Cave (introduction) and Jon Arfstrom (cover artist). BONUS ITEMS: THREE FROM THE TOMB: an exclusive chapbook of three more “weird tales” with an introduction by Joe Wrzos. Tucked inside is a facsimile of the promo flyer announcing the adaptation of some of these stories for radio in the early 1930s. $100

Signed by Michael Moorcock (introduction). With the 1000-copy trade edition of this book long out of print (the lowest price we found today was $145 with “light musty odor”—Ha!), this is the best bang for your buck on this title (and our copies are still minty fresh!). $125

THE COLLECTED STORIES OF JACK WILLIAMSON

Signed by Grandmaster Jack Williamson. Out-of-print as well as the first-ever appearance of the original serialized version (“. . . And Searching Mind”) of the text that was rewritten as THE HUMANOIDS.    $150
Signed by Connie Willis (introduction), initialed by Ralph McQuarrie (cover artist) and bearing a mounted autograph of Jack Williamson. $150
Another case of the out-of-print trade editions commanding higher prices than these autographed editions.
Only ONE of these left. Signed by Frederik Pohl (foreword), James Gunn (introduction), Vincent Di Fate (cover artist), Vicky Medley (on her contribution “Queens of Space”) and Stephen Haffner (editor). BONUS: A chapbook of Williamson’s “Seetee” works (“Opposites—React!” and a sequence from his 1950s comic strip BEYOND MARS) introduced by William S. Higgins; and a copy of the chapbook THE MAN FROM SOMEWHERE signed by Jack Williamson. $150


Signed by Robert Silverberg (introduction) and Frederik Pohl (afterword). BONUS: an exclusive chapbook, OTHERNESSES, which includes three rare stories (including the “lost” Hogben story) and an introduction by Barry N. Malzberg (who has also signed the chapbook!). $150
