THE PANIC HAND. [London]: HarperCollinsPublishers, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed by Carroll. Collects nineteen stories. "'My Zoondel' features one of Carroll's favorite motifs--a magic dog--whose powers to detect werewolves are pushed to the limited during a brief walk around the block in crime-infested Manhattan. In several stories, characters encounter projected manifestations of their own or others' personalities, as in the imaginary playmate who becomes an agent of revenge in 'Mr. Fiddlehead' … Carroll's horrors are often little more than the anxieties and neuroses of his characters write large, and thus all the more disarming for their tendency to emerge casually and assume complete control of a situation." - Stefan Dziemianowicz in Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-80. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-80. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#138398).
