THE BLACK DEATH. Basil Copper.

THE BLACK DEATH. Minneapolis, Minnesota: Fedogan & Bremer, 1991. Octavo, cloth. First edition. A Gothic mystery thriller set in England's Dartmoor region in the late nineteenth century about the criminous activities of the leader of a Satanic sex cult. "The spirits of Arthur Conan Doyle, Wilkie Collins, and other masters of Victorian British pulp hover over this novel, Copper’s best since his 1974 Lovecraftian homage THE GREAT WHITE SPACE. Old-fashioned it may be, but as produced by Fedogan & Bremer and effectively illustrated by Stefanie Kate Hawkes, THE BLACK DEATH yields many a pleasure rarely encountered in these trying times of splatterpunk, nihilism, and millenarian apocalypse." - Michael A. Morrison, Necrofile: The Review of Horror Literature # 7 (1993), pp. 24-25. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#159713).

Price: $25.00
