CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT. London: Jonathan Cape, . Octavo, boards. First edition. "This book recounts the strange happenings in a northeastern British town that presage the end of the world ... The final discovery is among the author's more inspired creations, and the climax ranks among his best." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 37. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-38. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-22. Just a touch of crimping to lower spine end, a bit of tanning to endpapers and page edges, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket (priced 18s on the front flap). A lovely copy and scarce thus. (#159949).
