Hadn't he seen defeat before, in other lives, in strand after strand of the Web of Life? But he knew that if he could thwart the curse of the Dark Elves even once, the infernal curse would finally disappear from all the strands, for all time. The trick, Eyjarr assured his astonished pupil, would be to learn from their mistakes - and to search again for the one, improbable strand where a couple of clever wizards could cheat an implacable fate...."

189 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 000222707X Export edition, without price on dust jacket flap. Continues the career of "The Dirtiest Soldier in the World", Private McAuslan, first seen in "The General Danced at Dawn" and th en in "McAuslan in the Rough". In these pages "he appears as the unlikeliest of batmen to his long-suffering protector and persecutor, Lieutenant Dand MacNeill, as guardroom philosopher and adviser to the leader of the Riff Rebellion, as t r e n c h a n t commentator on Scotland's World Cup performance, and even as Lance-Corporal McAuslan, the Mad Tyrant of Three Section. Whether map-reading his erratic way through the Sahara by night, confronting mobs of Arab rioter ('Mither o' Goa d! Wu ll y e lo ok at yon!), or falling hapless victim to the plots of poachers and illicit distillers in the wilds of darkest Perthshire, McAuslan's talent for comic catastrophe is as sure as ever, waking happy memories of an Army life and chara cte r s t hat ar e fas t f a ding away."

Hounslow Press / Anthony R. Hawke, Willowdale, Ontario, 1990. 
194 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0888821263 B&w illustrations. "Behind formal negotiations are events sometimes too hilarious (and human) for academic histories. Beneath serene exteriors are people, who, from time to time, are clowns. And often, the expectations of dignity and protocol only serve to heighten the antics. From his 30-year career, Sidney Freifeld - at various desks at headquarters and in various embassies, up through the ranks, to ambassador - recollects some of these tales. He has gleaned others from colleagues or 'unofficial' files. Among the treats in (this book): Castro's table manners at an impromptu dinner; The circus of incivility created by the arrogance of the Ceausescu clan and their entourage; Calls in the night to deal with Moscow's howling cats; Australian VIPs lost in the bowels of the Chateau Laurier; A Canadian embassy held at gun-point, by a Canadian; and Poetry to protest External's policy on decorations. Legations run like military outposts, the needs of beavers in transit, and the exchange of diplomatic notes over a baseball game are more subjects for 'Undiplomatic Notes'. And for the uninitiated there are some useful chapters on what really, really, goes on." Previous owner's label on front pastedown, bump to bottom edge of pages, small bump to top/bottom of spine.

Now, the Sabbat are about to crash their party." 2. Gangrel - 271 pp + excerpts, 1999 second printing, ISBN 1565048032 - "Ramona and her friends have learned this much: What they don't know can kill them - and will, if given a chance. Their watchword: beware! Beware of other vampires - the Sabbat's conscienceless killers. Beware the unknown - a monstrous creature with the oozing, pulsating Eye. Beware supernatural terrors that stalk the wild places. Beware even themselves, for in the blink of an eye their own bloodlust can take control." 3.

By dawn, all he has fought to achieve over centuries of vampiric existence is slipping from his grasp. Little does the Setite realize that his chance encounter in New York is a strand of the same web that bring the Eye into the hands of one of his own agents, only to be lost again. But is anything truly chance in the shadowy world of the Kindred?" 4. Ravnos - 265 pp + excerpts, 2000 first printing, ISBN 1565048083 - "Khalil Ravana has always been a lightweight, a drifter, a thief with not status and no power - until now. Chance saved him from a storm in Calcutta that annihilated his clan, and now chance has placed him in the center of another storm - this one in New York City, near the deadly Kindred battles for possession of the Eastern United States. For once, Khalil's sticky fingers give him the upper hand. Armed with secrets, a hidden ally, a burning thirst for revenge, and a hostage he saves from death, this Rom is going to take everyone else in New York City - Camarilla and Sabbat alike - for all he can get, including the blood of his elders." 5. Giovanni - 287 pp, 2000 first printing, ISBN 1565048261 - "Benito Giovanni has disappeared. Enter Chas Giovanni Tello, Mob strong-arm and part of the New World Giovanni.

Anthology - 288 pp, 2000 first printing, ISBN 1565048768 - "More fascinating than the events of the Clan Novel series are the characters. The wily Victoria; the cool and calculating Hesha; the new Prince of New York, Calebros; the mad prophet Anatole; the brooding and dedicated Theo; and all the other characters featured in the original series. These thirteen characters form the basis of the all-new stories of this anthology. And who better to tell their stories than the authors of the Clan Novels? All of the authors of the original series have contributed to this anthology. With the addition of fine stories by two other authors as well, readers may peer even deeper into the shadows of the World of Darkness and find answers to some of the mysteries not resolved in the series itself."
