For decades science fiction has excited the imagination with tales of flight to other planets, escape to other dimensions, lost worlds, utopias, mechanical creatures and intelligent aliens. More and more people have become fascinated by its unique mingling of technology with spiritual aspiration; of the serious with the escapist; of the intelligent with the lunatic; and of metal with metaphor. SF has proliferated like no other literature. In 'Trillion Year Spree' Brian Aldiss, Britain's best-known SF author, provides the first comprehensive and up-to-date history of this extraordinary phenomenon. Amusing, intelligent and authoritative, it takes us on a tour through that zone where literature and science engage in an eternal flirtation - the trillion year spree." including index - 511 pages.

His success has aroused the interest of an expert on Arthurian legend and freelance journalist, Geoffrey, who comes to spend some time studying the phenomena of Allhallows and taking part in the activities. But he finds, amidst the strange, timeless atmosphere of the old house, the baffling maze and weird sculptures in the garden, and some harrowing experiences with a new mind-blowing drug that the questions he had at first posed lead to answers and other questions more disturbing than he had ever dreamed.) described by the author as "not fictitious in the pure sense" & as containing several events which - "...did happen - Even the Ritual of the Grail was once enacted at Tintagel. Over the years I have seen cause to believe that it was a valid magical working." - this is more than a 'novel' in the conventional sense with the author participating as a major character in the story.

The Events of That Week
Collins, London, 1972. First Edition, Brown Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. 9780002212137 gilt titles spine; cover illust. by Jawdokimov; When Brig, English writer on holiday in Sicily, accidentally met Theresa. a beautiful young American, in the bar of their hotel. it was the beginning of a series of accidents - but none as happy as this first. The quiet almost idyllic atmosphere of their time together was destined to be shattered by the events of just one week. Out for a drive one day, Brig stops by chance at an isolated garage, and becomes the innocent victim of blackmail by the Mafia. The task: to hide a wanted man in the boot of his car and get him through police checkpoints. The threat: if he does not co-operate, his own life will be a short one. But his involvement with the cold-blooded members of the Mafia does not end here. Forced on only by the threat of harm to Theresa. Brig is ordered to travel to Malta, and from there to Naples. Shatteringly, he realizes he is now virtually one of them - the Mafia are using him in their drug-running operations. Grabbing any chance to escape their ever-tightening net Brig enlists the help of his cousin, a member of the consular service in Naples - a well-meaning character who only creates further complications. Told by various characters involved ­ sometimes only peripherally - in the adventure, Nicolas Bentley creates an intriguing mosaic to reveal the events of that week.

9780340387849 LE CARRÉ, JOHN, A Perfect Spy
LE CARRÉ, JOHN
A Perfect Spy
Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1986. First Edition, Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. 9780340387849 red end-papers; A Perfect Spy is the life story of Magnus Pym, a British intelligence officer and double agent. After attending his father's funeral, Pym mysteriously disappears. As his fellow intelligence officers frantically search for him it becomes clear that, throughout most of his career, Magnus worked as a spy for the Czechoslovak secret service. Although intrigue, wit, and suspense make up much of the novel, the story of Magnus Pym is partly an unadorned recollection of his childhood and memories of his father Rick Pym. The non-linear narrative cuts back and forth between the present-day manhunt for Pym (being conducted by his mentor, boss, and longtime friend, Jack Brotherhood), and Pym's first-person reminiscences of his life as, in hiding, he writes a memoir explaining to his family and friends why he betrayed his country. It incorporates flashbacks to Pym's childhood with his father, the enterprising charismatic rogue and con-man, Rick; to his early years at school and university; to his many amorous adventures, to his introduction to espionage and state secrets; and to his encounters with long-time friend and Czech spy Axel. The portraits reveal Pym as a man who for so long has manipulated his appearance to those closest to him that, in the end, he was unable to hold together the conflicting personae within him. Magnus Pym has been a perfect spy, but at the cost of his soul. Size: Large Octavo. 463 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. in archive acetate film protection.

 DAVIES, HUGH SYKES, Petron
DAVIES, HUGH SYKES
Petron
J.M. Dent and Sons Ltd. London, 1935. First Edition, Hardcover. Fair Condition/No Dust Jacket. Petron, in this prose narative, wanders on his strange journey with many encounters. Though influenced by the poems of Aristo, the construction of this tale is primarily surrealistic. Hugh Sykes Davies (1909 – 1984) was an English poet, novelist and communist who was one of a small group of 1930s British surrealists. Davies was born in Yorkshire to a Methodist minister and his wife. He went to Kingswood School, Bath and studied at Cambridge, where he co-edited a student magazine called Experiment with William Empson. He spent some time in Paris during the 1930s. He was to stand as a communist candidate in the 1940 general election, but the vote was cancelled because of World War II.

Instead, she was met by the news that Beatrice and her husband had perished tragically in the fire that had destroyed their home. She had no alternative but to accept· the hospitality offered by local landowner Sir Randall Gaunt. Gaunt's medical research had made him a suspect figure in the mid-nineteenth century, that age of Burke and Hare, There were ugly rumours concerning his wife's death and uglier ones of young girls disappearing, What went on in the locked laboratories at his home? Deborah was only too thankful for the youthful companionship offered by Justin Stannard and his sister at Stannard Priory nearby, and as the attraction between her and Justin flowered, she was delightedly aware that the wealthy, handsome young aristocrat was eager to make her his bride. Yet for all her excitement, Deborah was uneasy. The discovery of a village girl's body focused attention once more on Randall Gaunt. How well, Deborah wondered, had he known her sister? Why was Justin so relentlessly opposed to him? And what of the strange lights she had observed in the ruins of the Priory? She had no inkling of the danger into which her curiosity would lead in those remote and superstition-ridden breckIands, where the strange eye stones warded off unguessed-at evil and played a part in Deborah's own fate."; price-intact D/J.(now protected) has very light wear to spine ends & corners; 223 pages.

GALLICO, PAUL
The Snow Goose (Illustrated Edition)
Michael Joseph, London, 1947. Third Impression, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Illustrated by: Peter Scott. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. end-papers green with goose drawings in white; colour frontis. illustration; 3 further full-page colour illustrations plus others in b/w. or green; title to top of each page & first line of each chapter in green; The Snow Goose is a simple, short written parable on the regenerative power of friendship and love, set against a backdrop of the horror of war. It documents the growth of a friendship between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse in the marshlands of Essex because of his disabilities, and a young local girl, Fritha. The snow goose, symbolic of both Rhayader (Gallico) and the world itself, wounded by gunshot and many miles from home, is found by Fritha and, as the human friendship blossoms, the bird is nursed back to flight, and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years. As Fritha grows up, Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the Dunkirk evacuation, having saved several hundred men. The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her (and realizes she had come to love him). Afterwards, a German pilot destroys Rhayader's lighthouse and all of his work, except for one portrait Fritha saves after his death: a painting of her as Rhayader first saw her—a child, with the wounded snow goose in her arms.
