THE CELL AND OTHER TALES OF HORROR. London: Macdonald, . Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's first book, a collection of "three novellas, each featuring a human confrontation with the bestial ... Contemporary stories that call to mind the ambiguous supernaturalism of the pulp weird menace tale, but rendered in a leaner, more sophisticated style." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-83. "... three chilling, evocative, thought-provoking novellas told with great precision, economy and intensity." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-75. "The Cell" is "the diary of a man who claims to be a werewolf, but may be a homicidal maniac seeking to justify his sociopathic behavior to himself." - Barron (1999). Reginald 02752. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with a touch of dust soiling to rear panel. A very scarce book. (#157003).
