New York, Everest House, 1981. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. King's first major foray into non-fiction, examining horror fiction and beyond. Easy reading compared to many similar 'academic' texts. Well worth the read. Uncommon in this condition. Some rubbing to the folds on the jacket and a little wear to the spine tips. Overall a respectable copy. [6059, Hyraxia Books].
