New York, Ace / Ultramarine Press, 1987. Limited Edition. Hardback. A lovely copy. Powers has mentioned a number of times how the Disneyland ride, which spawned the films, was a great influence on the book. Powers wrote the book after Lester Del Rey had rejected 'Anubis Gates' and 'Dinner at Deviant's Palace', but found Del Rey rejected 'On Stranger Tides' too. Ace then picked the book up, as the feedback Del Rey had given Powers was strong enough to allow Powers to further sculpt the book. Ultramarine Press bound 150 copies of the book and tipped in a signed sheet. Nominated for the World Fantasy Award, and the inspiration for the Monkey Island video game from 1990, and most famously the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film. An important novel in the perhaps under-represented subgenre of fantasy, and a great adventure. A lovely copy, bound in quarter leather. The book constitutes part of the story in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Numbered 30 of 150 copies. [8011, Hyraxia Books].
