THE SENTINEL. New York: Simon and Schuster, . Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Signed on the front free endpaper by Konvitz.

"One of the better novels of urban occultism to appear in the wake of ROSEMARY'S BABY, although its contrived denouement dissipates its otherwise engrossing mystery." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-213. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-140. Owner's signature at upper right edge of the half title page. The usual age-darkening to the pulpy paper text block, a fine copy in fine price-clipped dust jacket.
