Conner, Michael
Tor, 1995, 0312857438 / 9780312857431

First Edition, Hardcover, Fine, Fine. Book. Schmehl, Brad
Hardcover first edition, first printing. Lightly bumped at head and heel of spine panel, else fine (unread) copy in fine jacket. Not a remainder, book club or ex-library copy. Fascinating and detailed alternate history and murder-mystery novel set in post-WWI 1920's Minneapolis, after a devastating plague decimates whites and leaves the black population immune and struggling to carry-on civiliation. Against this backdrop vampire-like murders are occuring in the city that are begin hushed-up. A second novel by this Nebula-winning author, it includes rich narratives on jazz music, pirate radio, prejudice and social breakdown. "[A] tour de force." - Publisher's Weekly. "Conner's dystopic vision of a nation wracked by fear and prejudice serves double duty as a modern parable and a taut sf thriller. This disturbingly thought-provoking novel belongs in most sf collections." - Library Journal.

BONES OF ZORA [THE], De Camp, L. Sprague and Catherine De Camp
2 BONES OF ZORA [THE]
De Camp, L. Sprague and Catherine De Camp
Phantasia Press, 1983, 0932096271 / 9780932096272

First Edition, Hardcover, Fine, Fine. Book. Poyser, Victoria
Hardcover first edition and first trade edition. (Preceded by the signed and numbered Phantasia limited edition.) One of 2,000 trade copies. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. Except for small amount of crinkling at top and bottom corners of the dustjacket, this copy is straight, unmarked and very fine (unread) condition in very fine dustjacket. Difficult to find Phantasia titles in very fine condition. The sixth book in De Camp's campy but very fun Krishna series. The series is both SF and Fantasy (starfarers marooned on a medieval world are exploited technically and sexually by the savvy natives), and de Camp took time in this series to poke fun at the SF/Fantasy stereotypes. We'll miss him. Phantasia Press was the premier specialty publisher for SF and Fantasy titles in the 1980's, and these finely crafted editions are very collectible, and theirs titles included Asimov's Robots of Dawn, Brin's Startide Rising, Ellison's Medea, and Gibson's Neuromancer. Excellent full color, wrap-around dustjacket illustration by Victoria Poyser.
