Inscribed by the author to horror writer Stanley Wiater: "I'm pleased to be one of your Dark Dreamers -- sounds like an accurate description to me!" With Wiater's bookplate.

He has won the Horror Writers of America's Bram Stoker Award three times; Straub has also been a multiple winner of the Stoker Award. Sunning and foxing to top edge; near fine in a very good, rubbed and edgeworn dust jacket with a small abrasion to the front panel and a chip to the upper rear panel. With Wiater's Gahan Wilson-designed bookplate on the front free endpaper (reportedly the only bookplate Wilson ever designed). [#029176] $750
