1983-1986. Three typed letters signed and two typed notes signed from Epstein, novelist and Director of the Graduate Creative Writing Program at Boston University, to fellow writer Jay Neugeboren. Epstein commiserates after his novel is unjustly reviewed by a "feminist communist, or historian of feminists or communists or whatever, but what connection has she to literature?" He tries to coax Neugeboren into teaching a workshop at B.U. In the later letters, he submits to him his curriculum vita (Rhodes, Fullbright, Guggenheim, NEA...Married, three children, condo in Brookline, Subaru wagon) and his recommendations for the Swados Prize. Frank, personal and literary. All on Boston University stationery; fine. [#012788] $95

click for a larger image of item #33450, Soaked in Light Toronto, Quantum Theology, (2000). The first book by this Canadian horror fiction writer, a collection of four stories, signed by the author in 2001. One of the stories, "The Emperor's Old Bones," won the International Horror Guild Award for Best Short Story of 1999. Files was also a contributor to the Canadian television series The Hunger, an erotic horror anthology produced by Tony and Ridley Scott, and hosted in its two seasons by Terence Stamp and David Bowie.

click for a larger image of item #911203, Bright Angel (n.p.), (n.p.), 1988. A 120-page screenplay by Ford for a 1991 film adaptation he did from stories in his collection Rock Springs. The film was directed by Michael Fields and starred Dermot Mulroney, Lili Taylor, Sam Shepard and Valerie Perrine. Apparently a later generation photocopy, as the text is less sharp; also the rectos of the pages tend to stick to the versos of the pages preceding. This copy is signed by the author. Near fine, in maroon binder. [#911203] $1,000

click for a larger image of item #33014, Cien Años de Soledad [One Hundred Years of Solitude] (Santafé de Bogotá), Editorial Norma, (1997). The thirtieth anniversary edition of the Nobel Prize winner's masterwork, one of the most important novels of the 20th century, which introduced "magical realism" to a wide audience and helped bring the boom in Latin American literature to this country when it was published in the U.S. in 1970. At the end of the 1970s this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the previous ten years but the one most likely to still be read and to still be important one hundred years hence. Copy #XLV of 100 Roman-numeraled copies signed by the author. Bound in full leather with raised spine bands. Fine in slipcase, still shrinkwrapped. A true high spot of twentieth century world literature, an uncommon signature (Garcia Marquez limited his travels to the U.S. after a State Department ban imposed on him because of his friendship with then-Cuban leader Fidel Castro), and a rare edition of one of the defining books of the century: the only signed limited edition of this title.

click for a larger image of item #33176, Where the Hummingbird Flies NY, Harcourt Brace, (1961). His first novel, which deals with colonial oppression in the author's native Trinidad. Inscribed by the author in 1963 to Max Delson, lawyer and Socialist Party leader, with "enduring esteem." Hercules came to New York in the 1940s where his father, an anticolonial revolutionary in Trinidad, had sought asylum after fleeing Trinidad. Frank became associated with the black nationalist movement in the U.S. as well as other progressive and left-wing causes. His second novel dealt with interracial marriage, and he wrote a book of nonfiction, American Society and the Black Revolution. The recipient was a lawyer who specialized in labor issues and was also a member of the executive committee of the Socialist Party. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. A nice association copy, and a good, early inscription. [#033176] $200

click for a larger image of item #31419, Oregon Trail 1975-2000 Eugene, Bend in the River Council, (1974). An ambitious project conceived by Kesey (as Co-Director) and others to form a Council to address the major problems facing Oregon (and by extension, the U.S.) in a manner which would expose the issues to the public at large and allow for public input. This is a press kit cum prospectus for the council, including numerous separate pieces, e.g. a copy of a letter to Kesey from the Governor, lauding the project; a two-page set of proposals for the creation of the council and its structure and agenda; two issues of The Bend in the River Reality, a broadsheet newspaper, to which Ken Kesey and Ken Babbs, among others, contribute to Issue 1, the "Special Armory Issue," and the same contributions appear in Issue Number 2, the "Special Coast Issue"; there are two magazine-format issues of The BITR Papers, with different color covers and variant content, some of which overlaps with other items in the lot. The intent of the project was to create an educated, informed "Enlightened Constituency" that would "influence not only the state's politicians, the populace and the industry, but the future course of her sister states as well, and thus help steer this nation through the uncharted waters before us." While it may not be attributable to this particular effort, Oregon has become something of a bellwether for the rest of the region and for the country as a whole; one way or another, the project has in many ways largely come to fruition. All housed in a Bend in the River Council folder. Edge-sunned and musty; very good. Rare. [#031419] $565

NY, Ballantine, (1984). Inscribed by the author using his real name, Dallas. Together with a French editions, also inscribed as Dallas. Stamp of another author inside each front cover; each is near fine in wrappers. [#030633] SOLD
click for a larger image of item #29934, Final Judgement Construction Company Annual Report & Literary Journal (n.p.), Well-Defended Press, 1990. A spoof on corporate reports, with contributions by a number of Canadian writers including Kinsella, Ann Knight, Spider Robinson, and others. Kinsella contributes "An excerpt from my essay, Treacherous Snivelling and Other Dangerous Trends in Contemporary U.S. Poetry." Also includes a poem (in Latin) by "Silas Ermineskin," a Kinsella alter-ego and one of the central characters in a number of Kinsella's highly praised Indian stories. Ermineskin's contribution is signed by "Ermineskin," somewhat illegibly. Also signed by Kinsella, Knight, Robinson and five others, presumably all the contributors, although the use of pseudonyms on the contributions makes it impossible to determine, from internal evidence alone, if this is the case. Folded sheets, with plain card-stock covers: apparently a home-made production by someone with a copier, a laser printer, and the friendship of a number of Canadian literary figures. Although the limitation is not stated, and the production methods did not preclude creation of more copies, we are told that there were 30 copies done. 24 pages, folded sheets in cardstock covers. OCLC locates only one copy, in the Canadian national archives. Fine. [#029934] $750

click for a larger image of item #29327, Field Notes and Typed Letter Signed NY, Knopf, 1994. A collection of stories, the third in a trilogy that began with Desert Notes and continued with River Notes. This copy was sent by Lopez in the month of publication to William Rueckert, literary critic, coiner of the term "ecocriticism," and the author of "Barry Lopez and the Search for a Dignified and Honorable Relationship with Nature," which appeared in the North Dakota Quarterly in 1991. With a typed letter signed from Lopez to Rueckert conveying the book, in part: "You were so insightful about River Notes, I thought you would want to see the book, though I know you've moved on to other things." The letter is approximately 125 words, folded in fourths to fit into the book, else fine. The book has Rueckert's signature on the front pastedown under the flap, and is otherwise fine in a fine dust jacket with a corner crease to the front flap. In its early conceptualization, the trilogy was going to include Desert Notes, River Notes and Animal Notes. Animal Notes was never written: Lopez turned his inspiration for Animal Notes into the groundbreaking nonfiction work Of Wolves and Men, and Field Notes then completed the sequence. [#029327] SOLD
click for a larger image of item #32660, The Road, Screenplay and Promotional Materials Beverly Hills, Nick Wechsler Productions/Dimension Films, 2008. A copy of Joe Penhall's screenplay, "Yellow Draft Version 1," dated 02.26.08; 112 pages on yellow paper; bradbound: an early version of the screenplay of the well-received film based on McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, differing from the final version in a number of particulars -- the placement of certain scenes and pieces of dialogue, and changes in the dialogue and screen direction. Together with a 20-page interview with Viggo Mortenson, the film's star, and a 15-page interview with director John Hillcoat. Each of these has been computer highlighted in color for ease of reading. Also together with 25 pages of production notes, in which Mortenson, Hillcoat, and others share their experiences bringing the book to the screen. Also one computer printout of a film poster, and a certificate of authenticity that was provided by publicist Noe Gold, who was hired by the Weinstein Company, the film's distributor, to write the production notes. Mortenson's interview has a bit of corner creasing; otherwise all elements are fine. A scarce look behind the scenes of a highly regarded film based on an even more highly regarded book: Mortenson, in particular, gives a very interesting account of his contact with McCarthy before and during the filming. Very uncommon. [#032660] $565
$396
(Bordeaux), (Tour de Feu), (1955). A French literary magazine; this issue focuses on Miller, with writing (in French) both by him and about him. Miller's early writings, including Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, were published in France decades before they were permitted in the U.S., and he thus received significantly more critical attention in France than in the U.S. until the 1960s. Pages uncut; near fine in wrappers. [#017216] $60

(Milano), (All Insegna del Pesce D'oro), (1962). The first Italian edition of Obscenity and the Law of Reflection, a volume first published in 1945 at the Alicat Book Shop. One of 2000 numbered copies, with 30 pages of photographs not in the original volume. Approximately 3 3/4" x 5". Fine in wrappers, with dust jacket, and wraparound band. [#017195] $40

All three volumes in Nichols' New Mexico Trilogy. Signed by the author in the third volume. The first volume has a very small bump to the spine base and jacket; the second volume has a short gutter tear and a tiny bit of top edge foxing, in a jacket with a creased upper edge tear; the set is for the most part stunning, still very near fine or better with no fading. The first book was memorably adapted for film by Robert Redford, with Nichols co-authoring the screenplay. [#911090] $500

click for a larger image of item #32512, Fireworks. A History and Celebration Garden City, Doubleday, 1984.

click for a larger image of item #32671, The Vampire Lestat Film Proposal 1988. Rice's own "bible-script" for a film "based on material in the novels Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned." Apparently named for the protagonist of all three novels rather than the title of the series' second book. Precedes the release of the film Interview with the Vampire (for which Rice wrote the screenplay) by six years. Development of a new version of The Vampire Lestat followed the success of that first film, but went nowhere and the film rights reverted to the author. A film of The Queen of the Damned followed in 2002, for which Rice did not write the screenplay and which contained many elements of The Vampire Lestat: neither Rice nor the critics approved of the sequel. This "bible-script" of Rice's seems destined to remain the series' missing link. Included here, in addition to Rice's 185 page script, are her list of "main characters, with notes on appearance" (2 pages); her 12-page treatment of a Queen of the Damned film; and one page on the "virtually endless" possibilities for more films (probably correct, as the 13th book in the series was published in 2018). Three hole-punched; mechanically reproduced sheets bound with two brads; title and date written on spine. Printed on rectos only with the header changing from "Rice/Vampires" to "Vampire/Rice" to "Vampire Chronicles." Small tears to the last page at the upper brad; near fine. A rare original work by Rice related to her most famous series of books, which rekindled the use of vampires in literature and the arts as stand-ins for human desire -- a trend that has persisted to the point that it is now a pervasive part of contemporary popular culture. We have been unable to find any record of another copy of this work appearing in the market, nor any evidence of it in institutional collections. [#032671] ON HOLD

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. A nice association copy: Wiater has been called "the world's leading authority on horror filmmakers and authors" and has published two books of interviews with masters of horror fiction in the Dark Dreamers series, as well as hosting a television interview series with the same title. 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.
