The first seven volumes of "The Vampire Files", plus volume 9, plus "Quincey Morris, Vampire" (not part of this series, but vampire-related) - 9 books in total. 6 3/4" H. Book 1. Bloodlist - 200 pp, 1990 1st printing, ISBN 0441067956 - "I've always had a weak spot for strange ladies. One very beautiful girl had even warned me that she was - get this - a vampire. But did I listen? No. Well, before you know it, I'm being chased by an ugly thug with a gun, and a bullet blasts its way through my back, and - believe it or not - nothing happened. I survived! How? You guessed it. I, Jack Fleming, ace reporter, had been transformed into - a vampire! Which has its advantages. You never die, you never grow old, you sleep all day, and best of all - you can hunt down your own murderer." Book 2. Lifeblood - 202 pp, 1990 5th printing, ISBN 0441847765 - "As nosferatu go, I'm basically a nice guy. Sure, I need a little blood now and then, but I never meant to hurt anyone. Too bad some people don't feel the same about me. Now I've got a bunch of crazy vampire-hunters on my trail, armed with crosses, silver bullets, and sharp wooden stakes. How did they find out about me? Why are they - pardon the expression - out for my blood? I don't know, but I'm going to get some answers even if it kills me - again." Book 3. Bloodcircle - 202 pp, 1990 6th printing, ISBN 0441067174 - "As a vampire, I have a number of handy skills - I can hypnotize mortals, walk through walls, and shrug off bullets like insults. The one thing I haven't been able to manage, so far, is to find the woman who made me what I am. Until now. Her trail has led me to the palatial estate of a wealthy widow - and a two hundred-year-old gigolo with a taste for young blood. He claims not to know where my long-lost lady is - or who is trying to kill me - but then again, you can never trust a vampire." Book 4. Art in the Blood - 195 pp, 1991 1st printing, ISBN 0441859453 - "(W)hen the career of a talented young artist is fatally cut short, I know I won't sleep easy in my coffin until I find the killer. But the world of high art - with its big money, bigger egos, and expensive forgeries - makes even bloodsucking seem simple. And safer. Dead artists can live forever. An undead detective may not be so lucky - ." Book 5. Fire in theBlood - 198 pp, 1991 3rd printing, ISBN 0441859451 - "Even the dead have to work for a living. This time, a priceless heirloom bracelet's been stolen from the wealthy Sebastian Pierece. And guess who's been hired to find it? Pierce has plenty of hard cash, a soft heart - and a hot-blooded daughter named Marian. Marian has big eyes for yours truly - and a very jealous boyfriend. And me? I have a night job I can really sink my teeth into." Book 6. Blood on the Water - 199 pp, 1992 2nd printing, ISBN 044185947X - "There's a new crime boss in town and he's gunning for a vampire. So are the police. Lucky me. What's worse, my thirst for the red stuff is getting out of control. I'm not sure what scares me mroe: the mob - or the darkness gnawing at my gut. When Chicago gets this hot, even a vampire can get burned." Book 7. A Chill in the Blood - 327 pp, 1999 1st PB printing, ISBN 0441006272 - "(B)eing a vampire with morals is no midnight stroll on the streets of post-prohibition Chicago. In the city of sin, the gangs still rule - and they're on the brink of an all-out war. Neither crooks nor cops care how much blood, innocent or otherwise, flows during the fight. But Jack does. Caught between the local hoods and the boys from New York, Jack has to stop the battle before it starts. But how much of his remaining humanity will he have to give up to do it?" Book 9. Lady Crymsyn - 410 pp, 2001 1st PB printing, ISBN 0441008739 - "(Jack) has made a good bit of money cleaning up the streets of post-prohibition Chicago - enough to realize his long-time dream of owning a nightclub where a man can get a legal drink, and where Jack's songbird girlfriend can headline the floor show. But renovations on the speakeasy come to a crashing halt when workmen discover the skeletal remains of a woman's body - clad in a distinctive red dress - walled up in the basement. Jack may have become a creature of the night, but he's still a man with a strong sense of justice. And he won't rest until he finds out who killed the lady in red - even if it means resurrecting secrets the mob would kill to keep buried." Plus: Quincey Morris, Vampire - 336 pp, Baen Publishing 2001 first printing, ISBN 0671319844 - "Rough and ready Texan Quincey Morris thrust his Bowie knife into Dracula's heart, bringing an end to the quintessential battle between the living and the Un-Dead. It also brought an end to Quincey as he bled his life away into the chill earth of Transylvania. Or so he thought. Waking to the night, surrounded by ravenous wolves, he finds himself plunged into his greates adventure yet: life beyond life - as a vampire. To survive, he must quickly adapt to his dark change. At the hands of his savage mentor it's a hard, painful process, but Quincey is determined to escape the wilderness and return to his grieving friends. However, Professor Van Helsing has convinced them that the only good vampire is a dead one. Seen as an acolyte of their greatest enemy, can Quincey persuade them to accept his change, or will a lifetime of friendship end in bloody betrayal? And for whom?" Interiors - one book with a large stamp from bookstore on first page, two books with light browning on inside of covers, three books with very light browning on inside of covers and one book on pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exteriors - edge wear varies from minor to light, two books with a very light spine crease, three books with slight spine lean, one book with light rubbing on covers.

2 Prescott, H.F.M. (Friar Felix Fabri.) ONCE TO SINAI: THE FURTHER PILGRIMAGE OF FRIAR FELIX FABRI.
London Eyre & Spottiswoode 1957 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good- 
310 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w maps, reproductions. "(Once) to Sinai went Friar Felix Fabri, among a score of pilgrims, starting from Jerusalem in late August of 1483. Of this pilgrimage, the Friar's account is, among all others, the fullest and liveliest. He kept a diary of the dreary trudge across the desert, using such commendable care and accuracy that the route of the pilgrimage can be traced by the modern traveller who knows the ground. At the Monastery of Saint Katherine, his patron Saint, he enjoyed to the full the various opportunities for strenuous climbing and for devotion. Another desert journey brought him and his companions to Cairo, one of the two capitals of the Moslem world, magnificent and squalid, swarming with strange and fascinating life and containing also monuments of a past so ancient that it was all a mystery to the beholders. From Egypt the pilgrims sail home in the great cargo galleys of the Venetians, laden with spices from the autumn market at Alexandria, and the Friar reports the discomforts, enjoyments and humours of a stormy winter voyage among the islands of the Aegean and Adriatic. At Venice, leaving the company of the pilgrims, he came even more closely in touch with the commerical world of the fifteenth century as a guest of the German merchants in their Fondaco at the foot of the Rialto bridge. It was in the company of these same merchants, returning across the frozen Alpine roads with their purchases of spices and Murano glass, that Felix Fabri came back at last to Ulm and to the dear friends in the Dominican House in the angle of the city wall. His account of that joyful homecoming, in itself a rarity in pilgrim literature, brings to a perfect close his long, rich book, full of curious information and humorous and delightful anecdote, which has been so superbly quarried and interpreted by Miss H.F.M. Prescott." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump at corners of front board, very light browning to edges of text block - a few tiny foxing marks on top, minor edge wear. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has small chip at top of front flap fold, several edge tears with old tape stains - mainly at top/bottom of spine, light to moderate edge wear, light rubbing on spine.
