THE MASK OF THE SORCERER. Darrell Schweitzer.

THE MASK OF THE SORCERER. London: New English Library Hodder and Stoughton, [1995]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Signed inscription by Schweitzer on the title page. "THE MASK OF THE SORCERER is sure to be appreciated by connoisseurs of the Old Masters of the weird tale. But having said that, don’t expect to find any Dunsanian restraint: there are chilling images of horror, and scenes of bloody death that are shockingly effective … Schweitzer’s Sekenre is a wonderful character, the kind of narrator that Gene Wolfe might have created … To Schweitzer’s credit, he meets the challenge of portraying, in a convincing way, the psychology of a child whose head is stuffed with the evil and dehumanized spirits of past sorcerers." - Steve Behrends, Necrofile: The Review of Horror Literature #21 (1996), p. 25. Just a touch of rubbing to edges, else a fine copy. (#164472).

Price: $35.00
