 WE DO NOT SOURCE BOOKS FROM A WAREHOUSE

 OR A CATALOGUE, WE ONLY OFFER BOOKS FOR SALE

THAT WE HAVE IN STOCK READY FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH

THE PICTURE SHOWN IS THE ACTUAL BOOK++

 

On offer is a LIMITED EDITION (350 copies only) hardback copy of Robert Aickman's "TALES OF LOVE AND DEATH" published by Tartarus Press in 2012

 

Robert Aickman (1914-1981) is considered by many to be one of the finest exponents of the modern ghost story. Aickman himself referred to his tales as ‘strange stories’, for they are often open to more complex interpretations. His writing is subtle and poetic, presenting us with psychological and more material terrors. Tales of Love and Death (first published in 1977) is a collection of seven mature tales by this craftsman of the uncanny.

"Along with Walter de la Mare, Elizabeth Bowen and a few others, Robert Aickman belongs to the Chekhov school of the weird tale. Such writers recognise that stories don’t require pat endings. They don’t need to close with the snap of an O. Henry trapdoor, or the ironic twist of a Maupassant. A short story can actually convey a more haunting depiction of the human predicament by avoiding any kind of artificial conclusiveness. Life is messy, not neat; most problems are never clearly resolved, but only lived with; people act unreasonably for no apparent reason." (Michael Dirda, from the Introduction to Tales of Love and Death)

The Tales are :

Growing Boys

Marriage

Le Miroir

Compulsory Games

Raising the Wind

Residents Only

and

Wood  

Tales of Love and Death is a sewn hardback of 243 + xiii pages, printed lithographically, with silk ribbon marker, head and tailbands, and dustjacket.  

The book is in MINT and UNREAD condition in a MINT dustjacket

 

Every book sold ... from the most humble paperback to the most expensive hardback First Edition ... having first been wrapped in bubble wrap ... is posted in a custom-made cardboard box.

 

I concentrate on the Horror, Fantasy, Science Fiction and Crime fiction genres but not exclusively. I have an excellent selection of books listed in my eBay Shop at any one time ranging from inexpensive paperbacks to collectable, hardback First Editions. Please feel free to browse.

  

I accept payment by cheque, postal order or PAYPAL from UK buyers. Buyers from outside the UK must be able to pay via PAYPAL as the cost of conversion on foreign currency cheques/orders is prohibitive for relatively inexpensive items. Postage will be charged at cost to overseas buyers

 

 MY CONDITION DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON THE FOLLOWING :

 

MINT …..As you would buy the book new from a high street bookshop.

 

FINE …..Not quite perfect. Some signs of storage but any faults should be negligible. Possibly a neat inscription or bookplate. (My description will specifically state if this is the case !!). An excellent alternative if ‘MINT’ is not available.

 

VERY GOOD … Book shows signs of wear or reading but not serious. Dustjacket (when present) may have some  minor tears / creases and book / dustjacket may be rubbed or chipped. Again not seriously 

 

GOOD … Numerous faults. Large tears or significant elements of the dustjacket missing / creases / stains. Book may be slanted and badly bumped. I will not offer for sale any item that would meet with this definition unless the book was exceptionally rare !!!

 

READING COPY …Only fit for reading. Read it and then bin it !! (Not to be confused with an ‘Advanced Reading Copy’ – ARC)

 

NB it is possible that some books will fall between two descriptions so you may see, for example, ‘VIRTUALLY MINT’ or ‘NEAR FINE’ or ‘VERY GOOD+’
