(#169884) MASTER OF SHADOWS. Margery Lawrence.

MASTER OF SHADOWS. London: Robert Hale Limited, [1959]. Octavo, boards. First edition. "Four novellas featuring psychic detective Dr. Miles Pennoyer; 'The Woman on the Stairs' involves psychic vampirism, 'Saloozy' an Elizabethan magus still practicing the Black Arts beyond the grave. All are excellent in concept, but as in most of Lawrence's later work, overburdened with superfluous incident and detail." - Robert Knowlton. "... the book is extremely difficult to find in any edition or condition." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 134. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 113. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-123. Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 255. Hubin (1994), p. 488. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with touch of wear to front corner tips. A lovely copy. (#169884).
