The Hand-Reared Boy , Aldiss, Brian W.
1 Aldiss, Brian W. The Hand-Reared Boy
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1970 0-297-17960-8 / 9780297179603 First Edition 
Very Good in a Near Fine dustjacket. Red boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 189pps. There is mild rubbing to the board-edges and there is a faint pencil erasure in the upper corner of the ffep. Also, several pages had been dog-earred. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing wear at the extremities; the original price is intact.

"...The first of a quartet of novels which will span the four decades from the thirties through to the sixties, in the form of fictitious autobiography.
The quartet will reveal with increasing power the malformation of spiritual and sexual life by the anti-human preconceptions of our century. The novels will also expose the poverty of art and human involvement of the English middle classes.
This is the background schema of the novels. On the surface they present merely the rackety, impudent and apologetic life of Horatio and his hungers, as he moves from school to army, from brothel to marriage, and from marriage to the divorce courts and eventual partial adjustment to his own character and the meaning of happiness..."

"A profound and enriching experience for all young readers, this stirring fourth book of the Prydain cycle is in keeping with the distinguished literary standards of the previous three books. Here Taran goes questing for his parentage, hoping that it will prove nobel for the sake of a certain princess with red-gold hair. Accompanied by the faithful Gurgi, he goes first to the three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva who send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet to learn who he is with the cryptic promise that 'the finding takes no more than the looking.' Joined by some of his old friends, Taran, sidetracked time and time again by exciting adventures, eventually comes to the rugged wasteland where the shepherd Craddoc lives and for a time gains a father -- and comes to know shame.
In a deeply moving climax at the Mirror of Llunet which is not an ending but a beginning, Taran Wanderer learns who he is and the secret of the Mirror -- which the wily Enchantresses had known all along..."

She turns out to be a succubus, beginning his initiation into a realm populated by demons which are not merely horned, but horney. He encounters a perverse cast of characters that includes a satyr, a vampire, and a pair of luscious sisters, one of whom tricks him out of his manhood. So Prior Gross sets out on a perverse odyssey, taking him to a distant planet where he discovers the key to the return of his property and, ultimately, the origin of the universe itself."

Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years..."

[1984]. Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 201pps. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright.

A very nice copy of this earlier Butler -- scarce in collectible condition. ".Ms. Butler has created a horrifyingly believable world in the not-too-distant future, a time when the bonds of civilization have all but disappeared, when violence and vigilante justice are the rule rather than the exception. In such a world, the kidnapping of a doctor and his two daughters traveling across the California desert is hardly exceptional. But the small band of emaciated strangers who capture them is. They do not speak of ransom. Although sometimes their eyes glint with almost animal cunning, their bodies are wracked and wasted -- the consequence of drugs or disease. Paradoxically, they possess almost superhuman strength. Led by Asa Elias Doyle, the sole survivor of the ill-fated starship Clay's Ark, the desperate people have become innocent victims of a 'close encounter' with an alien life-form -- one so sinister and ultimately destructive of humankind that it has forced them into exile in a remote corner of a desolate wasteland, the better to resist a compulsion to spread the infection. To resist is to ensure mental agony, but to surrender is to relinquish one's humanity and free will -- to be ruled by physical drives that know no morality or restraint."

But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go-- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil-- and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings -- and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?
In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation..."

"...Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go-- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil-- and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings -- and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?
In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation..."
