London, Collins, 1987. Limited Edition. Barker's third novel, and the book where the quality of his writing really starts to find its feet. "Painstakingly crafted and astonishingly original" [Rennison and Andrews, 101 Must-Read Fantasy Novels, p5]. A remarkable book, and perhaps Barker's finest. The book was nominated for the World Fantasy Award. A highlight of British (and international really), horror and dark fantasy. One of 526 copies published, 26 being lettered and reserved for private distribution (this being one of the 26). Quarter-bound, with AEG, in slipcase. Barker is one of modern horror's leading writers. Fine in fine case. Illustrations by Clive Barker & Tim White [5957, Hyraxia Books].
