Seven books from Simon Hawke's 'Wizard Series', 6 3/4" H. *The group on offer here does not include the prequel (The Wizard of Camelot), the final volume (The Last Wizard) or the spinoff (The Nine Lives of Catseye Gomez).* 1. The Wizard of 4th Street - 247 pp, 3rd printing, ISBN 0445208422 - Wyrdrune (a less-than-competent student wizard) and Kira (a beautiful cat burglar) have "managed to pull off the heist of the 23rd century. The place was a posh Fifth Avenue gallery. The room was full of sorcerers bidding their heads off - and Wyrdrune and Kira made off with three invaluable jewels. Now, they've got hired killers, Arab magnates, and every punk magician in New York after them. The real trouble is that the stones are enchanted. Which means they keep coming back to Wyrdrune, and he can't get rid of them - or Kira - for love or money. It's going to take serious thaumaturgic research to unravel a mysterious spell that goes back to the dawn of time." 2. The Wizard of Whitechapel - 215 pp, 2nd printing, ISBN 0445203048 - "A telephathic dream shared by (Wyrdrune and Kira); a dream that called them to England to save the last survivor of Camelot. Only when they awoke, the nightmare became real. An enchantment from the dawn of time united (them) with a shady French witch, a 300-pound fairy, and a feisty thirteen-year-old English punk street urchin named Billy Slade - who is a lot more than what he seems. But can this unlikely team prevail over the awesome, ancient power that is loose in London, stalking the mist-enshrouded streets at night and savaging its victims? Can anything defeat the necromancy of the Dark Ones?" 3. The Wizard of Sunset Strip - 202 pp, 2nd printing, ISBN 0445207027 - "A devil haunts the City of Angels - a fiend who is carving his own Hollywood legend on the bodies of young women. Is the killer a psychopath? Or a relentless evil from the dawn of time? Only (Wyrdrune, Kira and Billy Slade) can tackle the case that baffles the police. Why are people disap-pearing? Why was the only suspect torn to pieces in his jail cell? From the glitz and glamour of Tinsel-town to movie sets where ominous shadows leave footprints in the ground, Wyrdrune and his band must find a way to stop the murders - before a fantasyland of eternal horror is created in a temple of innocence." 4. The Wizard of the Rue Morgue - 201 pp, 1st printing, ISBN 0445207043 - "Responding to an ally's plea, the bearers of the runestones must outwit the gendarmes to free an innocent man. Meanwhile, Parisian street children are disappearing as a chain of bizarre slaughters brings a new horror to the Rue Morgue. And beneath the streets, in the seweres and Catacombs, the immortal Dark Ones prepare a gruesome trap to destroy the runestones. Their plan: unleash a bestial army on Paris and drown the city in a sea of blood." 5. The Samura Wizard - 214 pp, 1st printing, ISBN 0446361321 - "Tokyo, Japan, a thriving metropolis powered by a blend of technology and magic. But some inhuman entity is murdering women and Inspector Akiro Katayama, sorcerer agent in charge of crimes involving magic, has just one clue to work with - a dragon's scale. Enlisting the aid of Japan's greatest wizard and a streetwise homicide detective, he tries desperately to solve the case - but he has no idea of the awewome power he is dealing with. (Wyrdrune, Kira, Billy Slade & Modred are the only ones who) know the identity of the beautiful necromancer behind the killings - but can they stop her before she unleashes the most deadly spell of all?" 6. The Wizard of Santa Fe - 349 pp, 1st printing, ISBN 0446361941 - "The Pueblo Indians called it the Dancing Ground of the Sun, but now an evil force from the dawn of time threatens to turn this peacful city into a place of eternal darkness. With the coming of the Second Thaumaturgic Age magic has returned to the city, and it is here that adept Paul Ramirez hopes to pass on the old knowledge he has gained from the legendary Merlin Ambrosius. Soon, however, he'll find himself tracking down a vicious killer - in league with (Kira, Wyrdrune, Billy Slade) and a tough-talking one-eyed cat named Gomez. He'll need all the help he can get - on a Santa Fe trail of necromancy fast turning into a blood-soaked Festival of the Damned!" 7. The Wizard of Love-craft's Cafe - 210 pp, 1st printing, ISBN 0446365173 - "Undercover cop John Angelo had enough to worry about, posing as a contract killer to infiltrate the mob. Then a necromantic ambush results in his death, and Angleo comes back as something more than what he was - a blend of his own personality with that of a two-thousand-year-old sorcerer - Modred. His wizard half is needed to help Wyrdrune and Kira defeat the ancient Dark Ones now united to destroy the mystic Runestones, whose magic spell has pursued evil from the dawn of time. But his undercover cop half has lost his memory and thinks he's the lethal hit man Johnny Angel. And now Johnny is being stalked by an immortal killer - one who makes even the mob look like a bunch of amateurs!" All volumes have a slight lean to the spine, light edge wear - a little more on '...4th street' and '...Whitechapel', light browning to edges of text block; '...Samurai' and '...Sante Fe' have light creases on spine; ...Whitechapel has a looped ink line at top of front cover and water stains/waviness at bottom of book.
