Secret Stories - SIGNED, Campbell, Ramsey

1 Campbell, Ramsey Secret Stories - SIGNED
PS Publishing 2005 1904619525 / 9781904619529 First/First Hardcover Fine Near Fine Hardcover 
Limited edition signed by Ramsey Campbell and Jeremy Dyson on signature page. Limited to 200 copies, this is number 59. Book is as new; dust jacket has a bit of edge wear from slip case, else fine. Out of print from publisher. "Dudley Smith writes stories, but he has reasons why he wants nobody to know. His mother Kathy knows he writes and wants the world to read his work. Can Patricia, the journalist who interviews him, learn his secret before she becomes part of his research? Secret Stories is a black comedy of creativity gone wrong, a contemporary Liverpool crime novel, a study of one of today's typical sociopaths. Ramsey Campbell has already written about killers before - in The Face That Must Die and The Count of Eleven and elsewhere - but never more memorably than this. You might know this one. You might work with him."

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Clarke, Susanna

2 Clarke, Susanna Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
Bloomsbury New York 2004 1582344167 / 9781582344164 1st Printing Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good + 
Scarce first printing of this title; red end pages and white dj with black lettering. Book is tight and square with light soiling on bottom of text, else fine. DJ has light soiling to covers but no chips or tears. Wear at corners. "English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. But at Hurtfew Abbey in Yorkshire, the rich, reclusive Mr Norrell has assembled a wonderful library of lost and forgotten books from England's magical past and regained some of the powers of England's magicians. Soon he is lending his help to the government in the war against Napoleon Bonaparte, creating ghostly fleets of rain-ships to confuse and alarm the French. All goes well until a rival magician appears. Jonathan Strange is handsome, charming, and talkative-the very opposite of Mr Norrell. Strange thinks nothing of enduring the rigors of campaigning with Wellington's army and doing magic on battlefields. Astonished to find another practicing magician, Mr Norrell accepts Strange as a pupil. But it soon becomes clear that their ideas of what English magic ought to be are very different."

Damned - SIGNED, Palahniuk, Chuck

8 Palahniuk, Chuck Damned - SIGNED
Doubleday New York 2011 0385533020 / 9780385533027 First Hardcover Fine Fine Signed by author
Fine book in fine dust jacket. Signed by author on half title page. Dust jacket in mylar cover. Does not include postcards. "“Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school and dies over the holiday of a mari­juana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone’s favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won’t buy them off."
