London, Collins, 1983. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy, inscribed by the author "For Steve - \ Peter Straub". A supernatural novel, revolving around a malicious evil that comes to the town of Hampstead, CT every three decades. Some rolling to the jacket edges and a little toning to the block as is common. A decent enough copy of an early Straub. Not priced, so presumably an export edition. Cover art by Terry Oakes [6862, Hyraxia Books].
