As Arrietty says, 'Human beans are for Borrowers - like bread is for butter!'. These small, secret people can use all our apparently huge everyday objects in their own special ways: a cigar box can be made into a bed, a thimble used as a cooking pot - .This book follows the adventures of the resourceful Clock family, Pod, Homily, and Arrietty, as they find a new home after escaping from the wicked Platters, who want to put them on display in a model village. For the Borrowers, danger is never very far away: they must avoid the great disaster of 'being seen'. How Arrietty and her family manage - just - to keep away from humans makes an exciting and entertaining story, ingeniously told." Minor bump to bottom edge of rear board.

279 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "1864. London is a city in transition. The Constantine Affliction - a strange malady that kills some of its victims and physically transforms others into the opposite sex - has spread scandal and upheaval through society. Scientific marvels and disasters, such as clockwork courtesans, the alchemical fires of Whitechapel, electric carriages, and acidic monsters lurking in the Thames, have forever altered the face of the city. Pembroke 'Pimm' Halliday is an aristocrat with an interest in criminology, who uses his keen powers of observation to assist the police or private individuals - at least when he's sober enough to do so. Ellie Skyler, who hides her gender behind the byline 'E. Skye', is an intrepid journalist driven by both passion and necessity to uncover the truth, no matter where it lies. When Pimm and Skye stumble onto a dark plot that links the city's most notorious criminal overlord with the Queen's new consort, famed scientist Sir Bertram Oswald, they soon find the forces of both high and low society arrayed against them. Can they save the city from the arcane machinations of one of history's most infamous monsters - and uncover the shocking origins of 'The Constantine Affliction'?"

250 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). "(In seventeenth-century Germany), Krabat, a fourteen-year-old Wendish beggar boy, is summoned in a dream to a mysterious mill. When he awakens, an irresistible force makes him seek out a mill near the village of Schwarzkollm where he becomes apprenticed to the master. He soon discovers that the mill is actually a school for black magic and that he and the mill's journeymen are virtual prisoners. During the week they do the normal work of the mill, but on Friday nights the master initiates them into the strange rituals of the Art of Arts. The very first Friday, the master turns Krabat into a raven, a trick the boy quickly learns to do himself. Krabat completes his apprenticeship, becomes a journeyman and the master's star pupil in necromancy. But the power his new skills endow him with does not compensate for his loss of freedom. And the more he learns of the mill's dark secrets, the more determined he becomes to escape from the master's bondage. Called a masterpiece by reviewers in Germany, 'The Satanic Mill' was awarded the 1972 German Children's Book Prize."

"The minotaur lord Attat has given (Maquesta Kar-Thon's) father a slow-acting poison, and is withholding the antidote until Maq captures the deadly sea monster Morkoth for his private zoo. To accompany her on this voyage, Attat sends along the renegade minotaur Bas Ohn-Koraf and a shadow-person warrior, Ilyatha. As the 'Perechon' races to complete its quest, it is beset by pirates, attacked by Blood Sea imps, and tangles with kuotoa. Maq must not only fight these enemies but prove herself to the crew. Through it all, the image of her dying father bears down on her." Volume 3. Knights of the Sword - 314 pp, 1995 first printing, ISBN 0786902027. "The Knights of Solamnia were the greatest order of chivalry in the history of Krynn. This is the second tale of Sir Pirvan the Wayward, whose reluctant and inauspicious beginnings bore few clues to his potential as a Knight of the Sword or as a knight of the Crown, nor as a mentor for another similarly dubious prospect for Krynn's greatest order of chivalry." Volume 4. Theros Ironfeld - 316 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 078690481X. "As a boy, Theros Ironfeld was captured and pressed into service under the minotaurs. As a man, he first fought draconians to a standstill in Solace, and later, by mysterious means, acquired a silver arm. And when the evil dragons came to conquer, he was the only man who could forge the fabled dragonlances necessary to defeat them." Volume 5. Knights of the Rose - 316 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 0786905026. "This is the third tale of Sir Pirvan the Wayward, whose inauspicious beginnings bore few clues to his potential as a knight of the highest order. In a time when others of Solamnia had become corrupt and self-serving, Sir Pirvan maintained the dignity of the Order, walking the fine line between personal codes of honor and loyalty, and diplomacy and duty." Volume 6. Lord Soth - 313 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 0786905190. "There once was a mighty warrior whose jealous passions and neglect of duty led him to lose all that was dear to him - his love, his life, his very spirit. His tale is a descent into darkness and evil. His name was Lord Soth, and this is his story."

Shapechangers: 221 pp, 1984 14th printing, ISBN 0886771404 - "They were the Cheysuli, a race of magical warriors gifted with the ability to assume animal shape at will. For centuries they had been allies to the King of Homana, treasured champions of the realm. Until a king's daughter ran away with a Cheysuli liege man and caused a war of annihilation against the Cheysuli race. This is the story of Alix, the daughter of that ill-fated union - and her struggle to master the call of magic in her blood, and accept her place in an ancient prophecy she cannot deny." 2. The Song of Homana: 352 pp, 1985 2nd printing, ISBN 0886770572 - "The time has come for Prince Carillon, Homana's rightful ruler, to return from exile with his Cheysuli shapechanger liege men, free his land from the evil domination of the tyrant Bellan and his villainous magicians, restore the Cheysuli to their rightful position of grace, and claim his birthright. To do this, he would not only have to raise an army, but overcome the fear and prejudice of an ignorant population and answer the call of a prophecy he never chose to serve!" 3. Legacy of the Wolf (containing Legacy of the Sword and Track of the White Wolf): 764 pp, 2001 1st printing thus, ISBN 0886779979 - Legacy of the Sword - "In the aftermath of the revolution which overthrew the hated tyrant, Prince Donal is being trained as the first Cheysuli in generations to assume the throne. But will he be able to overcome the prejudice of a populace afraid of his special magic and succeed in uniting the realm in its life and death battle against enemy armies and evil magicians? - Track of the White Wolf - "Niall, Prince of Homana, key player in a prophecy that spans generations, should have been the treasured link between Cheysuli and Homanan. Yet neither of the peoples he is destined to someday rule feel anything but suspicion of Niall. Homanans fear him for his Cheysul heritage, while Cheysuli refuse to accept him as their own because he has acquired neither a lir-shape nor the lir companion which is the true mark of the Cheysuli shapechangers. And now, Niall must undertake a journey to fulfill yet another link in the ancient prophecy. He must travel through war-torn lands to claim his bride - a mission which may well prove his doom." 4. A Pride of Princes: 453 pp, 1988 7th printing, ISBN 0886772613 - "Brennan, Hart, and Corin (are) the three Cheysuli sons of Niall, ruler of Homana, and the next link in the generations-old prophecy of the Firstborn. Now the time had come for all three to take the paths for which they were fated. Three princes, three destinies - and if even one should fail to fulfill the patterns of prophecy, Homanan and Cheysuli alike would pay a deadly price." 5. Daughter of the Lion: 372 pp, 1989 9th printing, ISBN 0886773245 - "She is Keely, twin sister of Corin, and daughter of Niall, the ruler of Homana, and she alone has the power to shapechange into any form, a power akin to that of the Firstborn. And like her brothers, Keely has been chosen to play a crucial part in the Firstborn's prophecy. Yet she is no weak pawn to be used in men's games of power and diplomacy. Trained alongside her brothers in the art of war, gifted with more of the old magic than most of her close kin, she will not easily give way to even Niall's commands, nor be forced against her will into an arranged marriage. Strahan, the most powerful Ihlini sorcerer, is already planning a trap from which even one as magic-gifted as Keely may find not escape. And in the deepwood, another waits to challenge Keely, an outlaw fully as dangerous to her future freedom as Strahan is to her life."

Now, her ritual training completed and steeped in the special magic of her own runesword, she had come South in search of the young brother stolen five years before.

Outlawed by her action, she now had only a year to return there to stand in sword-dancer combat and either clear her name and honor or meet her doom." Book 3.

Yet before him wait perils far deadlier than any hounds. For in Ysaa-den he is hailed as a champion come to stop the force which has been wreaking destruction upon the villagers, a force which many claim is a dragon of unimaginable strength." Book 4. Sword-Breaker: 460 pp, 1991 4th printing, ISBN 0886774764 - "Accused of murdering a man the Southron tribes believe to be their messiah, but who is actually the slayer of Del's family, Tiger and Del flee across the deadly Punja desert, hunted by religious zealots and sword-dancer assassins. But evading death by assasssins' blades is only one of the challenges they face. For Tiger's sword, Samiel, has been possessed by the spirit of the deadly sorcerer, Chosa-Dei - a wizards out of legend with the power to unmake the entire world, a master of evil who seeks to mold Tiger into his ultimate weapon of destruction."

The Dracula Tape - 280 pp, 1989 first printing, ISBN 0812525817 - "Dracula is no villain but a tower of strength, eternally protecting his land and his people from the depredations of invaders. Those who hunt him are the true villains, for they seek to kill what they do not understand. Here, then, is the story of the Count's greatest love, Mina Harker, and the bloodthirsty vampire hunters whose cruel pursuit drove the master of the night to actions ever more ruthless. Listen, as Count Dracula sets the record straight." 2. The Holmes-Dracula File - 249 pp, 1989 first printing, ISBN 0812502558 - "Holmes confronts a pair of impossible problems: a ring of criminal masterminds threatening to loose thousands of plague-infested rats into the streets of London and a bizarre killer who leaves a trail of bloodless corpses - and no other clues. Dracula holds the key to both mysteries. Returned to London on a personal matter, the Count is quickly entangled in a web of evil that even his undead powers may not be enough to breach." 3. An Old Friend of the Family - 247 pp, 1987 first printing, ISBN 0812525507 - "Kate Southerland has been murdered. But she is not dead. Johnny Southerland has vanished, a severed bloody finger the only clue. The Southerlands are trapped in a blood-feud older than history. Their enemy is not mortal madman but the undying mistress of evil enchantment, Morgan Le Fay. But the Southerlands are not Morgan's true target. She seeks to do battle with their protector, their defender, the only being who can save these mortals." 4. Thorn - 299 pp, 1990 2nd printing, ISBN 0812503163 - "Europe, 500 years ago. Vlad Tepes, Prince of Wallachia, hunts royal prey - a renegade Princess. Ordered to kill the woman, he tracks her across the continent - but finding her, Dracula loses his heart. The United States, today. Undead, Vlad Tepes hunts the murderous art thieves who have stolen the portrait of his lost love. But the thieves are after more than art - from the Master Vampire they would steal the very secrets of life - and death!" 5. Dominion - 320 pp, 1982 2nd printing, ISBN 0812508556 - Vlad Tepes has roamed modern America without fear - until now. He is no longer the only immortal in Chicago. Two ancient, ruthless beings, locked in a struggle for the ultimate magic Weapon, have brought their blood-feud to his city. They will destroy any living thing in their path to possess this Weapon - but first, they must find it. And Dracula must prevent that at any cost." 6. A Matter of Taste - 284 pp, 1992 first printing, ISBN 0812525752 - "He was once called Dracula, but in Chicago in our day he is known as Matthew Maule. John Southerland, like the rest of the Southerland family, call him Uncle Matthew. After all he's an Old Friend of the Family and he has risked his un-life more than once to protect the Southerlands. But with Matthew rendered comatose by a fiendish plot from beyond time, the Southerlands must rise to his defense - and battle five hundred years worth of Dracula's enemies!". 7. A Question of Time - 278 pp, 1993 first printing, ISBN 08125257799 - "In 1935, Conservation Corps worker Jake Rezner meets a beautiful and mysterious young girl in the Grand Canyon.

Almost 60 years later private detective Joe Keogh has been hired to locate a missing girl - the great niece of Edgar Tyrell. But Tyrell is nosferatu, and he would sculpt in the sands of reality itself. So Keogh must call on Mr. Strangeways, An Old Friend of the Family and Lord of the Vampires, to battle an undead menace from beyond time!" 8.

159 Scott, Bill. Illustrated by A.M. Hicks. Jacket art by Nick Yates. BOORI.
Abelard-Schuman, London, 1978. 
149 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0200726951 The author's first novel. B&w illustrations. "The elements of Aboriginal lore which make up this stirring tale of magic and high adventure are based largely on the Kabi and Wakka nations, who once lived near the Queensland coast north of Brisbane. 'Boori' is a fantasy, but it shows the importance placed upon moral obligations by Aborigines in their native culture, and it is set in a precisely described landscape. T h e r e a d er should be able to trace the journey of the young man with the aid of an atlas and imagination - the People have gone but the mountains and rivers still remain, and the Melong still dances his great circling corroboree off the coast , br in g in g th e cyclones in to lay waste the land. In its imaginative empathy with traditional Aboriginal life and way of thought, 'Boori' is a notable achievement." Light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has ve r y lig ht wr ink li ng at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two very small closed edge tears, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good

London Voyager/HarperCollins 1999 0002258358 / 9780002258357 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine Alan Lee, dust jacket art. 
331 pp, 9 1/2" H. Wonderful wraparound cover art by Alan Lee. "A mysterious house in the remote Yorkshire moors awaits sixteen-year-old Fern and her brother Will for the summer holidays. Their hearts sink at the coming weeks of boredom, but as the old house gradually gives up its secrets their familiar world starts to fracture, giving access to a magical and corrupt land destroyed thousands of years ago. Outside on the moors a standing stone watches the house, but not always from the same place; inside, a sinister statue comes to malevolent life. At night, strange creatures seek to enter. And as their lives are invaded by the fantastical, Ferm finds herself courted by the enigmatic wanderer, Ragginbone, and the sinister art-dealer, Javier Holt, for they know that she has the Gift: a unique and powerful talent for magic not seen for ten thousand years. Hidden in the house is a talisman which has been sought by the forces of good and evil for millennia. A talisman so powerful that it can be used to shape time, to destroy civilizations, perhaps even conquer death. And only someone possessed of the Gift can use it. As events race to a desperate and fatal climax, Fern and Will must decide who, and what, to believe."
