THE ANGELIC AVENGERS. Pierre Andrezel, Karen Blixen.

THE ANGELIC AVENGERS. New York: Ace Books, Inc., [1963]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First paperback edition. Ace Book K167. Under her pen name Isak Dinesen, Blixen published several collections of highly regarded modern Gothic tales. THE ANGELIC AVENGERS is her only full-length novel of horror, a melodramatic thriller modeled on early Victorian novels. (Some dealers mistakenly date this edition 1947, confusing the copyright date -- and the date of the Random House first U.S. edition -- with the printing date of this Ace paperback edition.) "A curious book ..." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 21. Radcliffe, Gothic Novels of the Twentieth Century 183. Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 128. Bleiler (1978), p. 5. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). A very good, unread copy of an edition that is actually scarcer than the first edition of 1946 or the first U.S. edition of 1947. (#143847).
