No Rest for the Wicked
(Stockholm), Imaginary Worlds, (2001). Keene's virtually unfindable first book, a collection of stories published by a short-lived specialty press in Sweden, whose books were printed in quantities measured in the hundreds. Warmly inscribed by the author in the year of publication. Keene has since gone on to win two Bram Stoker awards, including one for his first novel in 2003, The Rising, an early novel in the zombie craze that has pervaded pop culture in recent years. Bookplate of the recipient, another author, on the front flyleaf. A couple of small spots to the cloth; near fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a couple of tiny nicks along the folds. Laid in is the brochure for Keene's instructional program on Guerilla Marketing. Scarce. [#030739] $850
