"Forests cover Ansalon. Under the legendary Silvanos, the elves of Krynn begin to tame the wilds and raise their crystal cities. But as the Elderwild Kaganos journeys toward a mystical encounter high in the mountains, he knows that, for his tribe, the woodlands must remain their eternal home. As centuries pass and Dragonwars rage, the tribe of Kaganos battles encroaching humans and the minions of the Dark Queen, aided by a potent legacy guided by revered Pathfinders. Until the wild elves stand upon the brink of the deadliest challenge of all - a challenge that marks a choice between annihilation and survival." Volume 2. The Irda - 312 pp, 1995 first printing, ISBN 0786901381. "Given life by the gods, the Ogres were the most intelligent and beautiful of the early races on Krynn, and they reigned supreme in their perfect kingdom. Until that fabled race was weakened by clan rivalries and evil ambition, their downfall orchestrated by the hand of the Dark Queen, Takhisis. Until the once-proud Ogres were cursed by their own mistakes and transformed into one of Krynn's most ugly, despised and villainous species. All except a small group, the Irda, who learned to accept goodness, fight for their freedom, and escape to build a utopian civilization of their own on a paradise island in the Dragon Isles." Volume 3. The Dargonesti - 314 pp, 1995 first printing, ISBN 0786901829. "In a time of war, a princess of Qualinost and an elite band of warriors sail forth to rescue their countrymen from the collapsing Ergoth Empire. Their journey goes awry when a strange mist engulfs Princess Vixa's ship and transports them to a phantom island. Who are the mysterious masters who imprison them in their undersea city? No soul has encourntered the fabled Dargonesti or visited the city of pearl marble that rises from the sea floor - and lived to tell the tale. Princess Vixa and her companions meet the race of sea elves, experience a fantastical underwater world, face a foe counted among the legends of Krynn, and accept an impossible mission that will bring them back to the land they call home. Volume 4. Land of the Minotaurs - 314 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 0786904720. "Throughout the time of Krynn, one race has remained strong in its pride and beliefs. The minotaurs envision themselves as the children of destiny, the future masters of the world. Despite adversity, defeat, and enslavement, that belief has never wavered. If there is a foe capable of destroying the minotarus, it is their own arrogance. Here is told the tale of clan against clan, and of how the exiled champion Kaz must discover the terrible secret of the empire before he and his entire race suffer the disastrous consequences." Volume 6. The Dragons - 316 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 0786905131. "Aurican and Darlantan, mighty serpents of gold and silver, have been nurtured in a world of wisdom, meditation, and sublime faith. On the other side of Ansalon, Crematia, a dragon of red, inherits the Dark Queen's legacy of betrayal, violence, conquest, and plunder. The advent of worldwide war sweeps these powerful beings and many more into desperate strife. Battles rage over Krynn with a fury that threatens to annihilate nations and whole races - even dragonkind. As campaigns ebb and flow, generations of lesser mortals come and go, and the great serpents are left to determine the fate of the world. Their triumphs may create a destiny of all-encompassing light or cast the world beneath the shadow of ultimate darkness." Interiors - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks.

114 pp, 8vo (8 15/16" H), soft cover. "...the first book to apply the modern understanding of the physical world to questions of prayer and divine providence, reconciling modern science with the Christian view. Is a personal God who interacts lovingly with His Creation a credible concept in our scientific age? Do miracles happen? Can prayer change anything? Why does evil exist? (This book) brings new and often surprising insights to bear on these familiar questions. The author's discussion also includes a reevaluation of God's relation to time. Polkinghorne argues for the necessity of a dipolar description, relating God to both time and eternity, and he discusses the consequences of this issue for an understanding of incarnation, sacrament, and the nature of hope."

"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." Interiors - very light browning to margins of pages, light browning to inside of covers on two vols., otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exteriors - very light edge wear, slight lean/twist to some spines; vol. 4 has some browning on parts of the edges of text block, a faint creases down the spine and a partial large label from bookstore on front cover; minor soiling.

69 Reid, Ed. MAFIA.
New York Random House 1952 Third Printing Hard Cover Very Good+ Good 
238 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). "Popularly know as The Black Hand, the Mafia, which began in medieval Sicily as a patriotic group, has been and still is in control of organized crime in the United States. It has achieved this dubious distinction by the systematic liquidation of rival, non-Sicilian gangs. The mere itemization of this long and bloody reign of underworld terror will give every responsible citizen pause for thought - after he has stopped shivering! This book contains much new material derived from secret sources. Perhaps the most sensational of its revelations links key Mafia figures with the Allied Military Government in Italy. How one of the most powerful Mafia heads, under indictment for murder in this country, turned up as an aide to AMG, received letters of recommendation from United States Army officers, and at the same time conducted huge blackmarket operations in American supplies, is one of the monstrous disclosures. Why this same notorious criminal, following his arrest, was not returned to the U.S. until after the strange death of the key witness against him, is another part of the riddle that hints at the enormous secret strength of Mafia terrorism. (The author) courageously digs deep into the muck of vice and crime to throw light upon a ruthless gang of killers and racketeers whose influence is as evil as it is widespread." Small initials in pen on free rear endpaper. Dust jacket has light edge wear, creases at top edge with color loss - mainly at top of spine and flap-folds, one very small edge tear, minor browning.

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.

"After hours of painstaking research, the true story of what happened in Sherwood Forest has been uncovered: Maid Marian did all the work and Robin Hood took all the credit.

In the earliest legend about Maid Marian and Robin Hood...we learn how the Sheriff of Nottingham swallowed Marian's pet tadpole, Edwina.

78 Rutherford, Ward. HITLER'S PROPAGANDA MACHINE
New York Grosset & Dunlap 1978 0448146274 / 9780448146270 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good- 
192 pp, 4to (12" H). Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, reproductions. "Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda and Public Entertainment, refined the use of what he called the Big Lie to a fine art. Democracy was portrayed as evil, dictatorship as good. Books which did not conform with Nazi ideology were burned; radio broadcasts were made with the intention of cowing the German populace and frightening the peoples of the world. Mass rallies were staged in Berlin, Nuremberg and elsewhere to whip up enthusiasm for the military expansion of Germany and hysteria for the Third Reich and the Fuhrer. Magazines and newspapers played their role in a more subtle way, emphasizing Nazi triumphs and minimizing or obliterating criticism of the regime and its failures. Colorful posters were put up throughout Germany. Later the Nazis enlisted the support of other Europeans in the pan-German cause. All of these propaganda techniques were master-minded by Goebbels, whose genius in orchestrating propaganda in the mass media was acknowledged even by his enemies. In films, magazines, posters, rallies and speeches by Hitler and his followers, Goebbels developed a propaganda mechanism that has been copied by dozens of dictators since but never equalled in its cynicism and fury." Book is slightly cocked, has light edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning to edges of text block, light cigarette odor. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, browning at edges, light edge wrinkling, creasing at top 4" of front hinge, light rubbing.

HUNGRY HILLS., Ryga, George.  Dust jacket art by Jerry Lazare.
80 Ryga, George. Dust jacket art by Jerry Lazare. HUNGRY HILLS.
Longmans Canada, (Toronto, 1963), Ist edition. 
180 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Although this powerful first novel is set in the Alberta foothills, it takes the reader into unknown country - an arid region created and peopled with unerring realism by a brilliant new writer. The story of young Mandolin's return to the only home he has known and his struggle to extricate himself from the web of futility and sorrow which he discovers to be his heritage, by fighting evil with evil, would be devastating in its starkness were it not for this young author's penetrating sympathy. His skilled depiction of character, his withering scorn of brutality and small-mindedness, his ability to stir the heart, turn this tragic tale into a most moving experience." Small light stain at bottom edge of both boards, very light browning to endpapers, tiny foxing marks on top of textblock, very light browing to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has a few small closed tears - one with creases, light edge wear, tiny chips at top of spine and top/bottom of flap-folds, moderate browning to spine, rear panel and some edges. VG-/G
