9 BROWN, Rita Mae Six of One. First Edition in dustjacket
Harper & Row, New York, 1978, 
BROWN, Rita Mae. Six of One. New York : Harper & Row, Publishers, (1978). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-ix,(1),1-310. 8vo, blie cloth boards, red cloth boards. "Her setting is Runnymede, a small town on the Pennsylvania-Marylandborder whose inhabitants often forget that the Civil War ended at Appomatt ox. Her time span sweeps through three generations, starting in 1909 and ending in 1980. And holding the center of the stage is the love-hate that exists between two sisters, Julia (Juts) and Louise (Wheezie) Hunsenmeier, whogrow up, marry, raise their families and enter old age without ever missin g a beat. What makes Six of One wise as well as wonderful, is the way Rita Mae Brown uses the small world of Runnymede to explore the universal feelings, particularly between women. In doing so she has assembled a glorious cast of characters, whose leads - Juts and Louise; their mother, Cora, the moral focus of the book; the glamorous Celeste Chalfonte, who defies conventions of time and place to live openly and happily with her female lover - must be strong to keep such supporting characters as Brutus Rife, the Snopes-like munitions maker; Extra Billy Bitters, ('Violent, handsome, mildly stupid, he struck fear in the hearts of mothers all over Runnymede' ); and Fairy Thatcher, an unlikely Communist, from upstaging them." - from the dj, Light wear to bottom edge, else very good in vg unclipped dustjacket (wear to corners). 35.00

12 CALLISON, Brian Auriga Madness. First Edition in dustjacket
Collins, London, 1980, ISBN:0002220695 
CALLISON, Brian. The Auriga Madness. London : Collins, 1980. First Printing. Pp (4),5-223,(1). 8vo [135 x 215 mm], blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Brian Richard Callison (b. July 13, 1934, Manchester, England) former Merchant Navy officer and noted author of sea fiction. His tenth book. *'The Auriga was an ordinary ship, making a quite ordinary voyage across the NorthSea from Helsinki to the Firth of Forth. The crew was quite ordinary too. Oh, Assistant Steward Baird and Seaman Grainger were on the hot-headed side; Chief Cook Holmquist did seem eccentric to some; and Seaman Guy was extravagantly upset about his mother - but though they were a bit odd they were odd in an ordinary sort of way. Until events forced the Chief Steward to prepare a Scandinavian-style lunch fro the crew - and The Madness secured itsfoothold aboard this very ordinary ship. From then on it was mounting horr or as the disease swept through her complement. To one it came in the form of violent nausea, to another as paralysis, to a third in nightmare fantasies. Some seemed to recover, only to succumb again, others slipped quickly into irreversibly coma. Some were patently mad as March hares, others apparently sane yet suddenly displaying a monstrous irrationality. Some experienced illusions so fearsome and so convincing that they communicated them to those around them. The Madness knew no rules and accepted no boundaries. Steadily it advanced until, suddenly, the Ship herself became mad. The most frightening thing about Brian Callison's spine-chilling thriller is that it is based on scientific fact. What happened to Auriga suggests a possible solution to the mystery of the Mary Celeste. It has happened in many countriesover many centuries. The Madness is real. It could happen again tomorrow. It could happen here. It could happen to you." (from the dj). Very good in price-clipped dustjacket (with Brian Denington jacket art). 28.00
