161 BOWERING, George Allophanes. First Edition
Coach House Press, Toronto, 1976, 
BOWERING, George. Allophanes. Toronto : The Coach House Press, (1976). First Printing. Pp. (56). Unpaginted. Tall 8vo, printed blue paper wrappers, French flaps, dark blue lettering to front & spine, triangular porthole cut to front cover. George Harry Bowering, OC, OBC (b. December 1, 1935, Penticton, British Columbia). "This poem was written from September to December in1974, & from all appearances seems to bridge a gap between the politics of 'At War with the U.S.' & the cultural narrative of 'A Short Sad Book'. It began with a sentence heard in the author's head: The snowball appears in Hell every morning at seven. It was said in the voice of Jack Spicer. The author knew something was up, & went deliberately to hear some more voices asbest he could, & hurried to write down what they were saying. Astute reade rs will recognize some of them. Allo means all. Phanes means appearances. The poem tries not to get one without the other. The scientific usage of theterm attends the shifting colours of mineral formations, such as stalactit es, lights in a cave. The word could also be translated as those things which are other than what they at first appear to be, all taken together." - from the front flap. Small sticker ghost to front cover, name inked to flyleaf, four characters inked to rear flap, else very good. NOTE: Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 20.00

Pp (6),7-284,(4). 8vo, blue cloth spine, light blue paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "Life seemedcold and dark and hopeless to Mary Kyle Eustace as she dressed in the blac k dawn of the shortest day of the year. She was twenty-nine, unmarried, andoverwhelmed by the futility of her life and her family's. Neither Proust n or the correct Harold Chivers could dispel her gloomy realization on that freezing Decemoer morning that life for all of them was just something to beendured. They were prisoners existing on lost hopes and dreams - her mothe r in the kitchen reading Trollope and her father in the study with his bottle of Old Swanee. They had all been taught to think and recognize their misery. They lamented their lives but were unable to act to improve them. Yet it was the beginning of another year, and the days would soon grow longer and lighter. Changes would occur in their lives - Buzz's accident; her sisters marriage; and her mothers death, which would somehow bring freedom to her father. For Mary Kyle it was to be an especially important year. She would love John Rossiter and find fulfillment even through unhappiness. One of the themes of Winter Solstice is the trouble many good people have in finding a sustaining purpose in their lives. The novel is not, however, didactic; its virtue is in its characters and their lives and actions. The theme and the form and the subject matter are unified into an effective dramatic whole."

170 BRADBURY, Malcolm Unsent Letters : Irreverent Notes From a Literary Life.. First American Edition in dustjacket.
Viking, New York, 1988, ISBN:0670820709 
BRADBURY, Malcolm. Unsent Letters : Irreverent Notes From a Literary Life. (New York) : Viking, (1988). First American Edition. Pp (12),xi-xvii,(1),1-218,(2). 8vo, blue cloth spine, white paper-coverfed boards, silver lettering to spine. Sir Malcolm Stanley Bradbury CBE (b. September 7, 1932, Sheffield – d. November 27, 2000, Norwich) was an English author and academic. "With wit, exuberance, and an unbridled sense of the absurd, award-winning novelist and critic Malcolm Bradbury collects here all the letters he's ever wanted to write. As Bradbury states in his Introduction (and as friends of his will testify), he is a particularly poor correspondent and in this respect compares badly to the likes of Keats, Pound, Freud, and Kafka, and indeed almost anyone else. But Bradbury asserts that he does write letters - hejust doesn't write them down. The fact of the matter is that his head is f ull of letters—political letters, fan letters, love letters, letters like those of Saul Bellow's Moses Herzog ("Dear Nietzsche"), to the famous dead. What all these letters have in common is that they are unsent; but Bradburycounters that just because you cannot see them (remember, you cannot see t he good and the true either), doesn't mean that they don't exist. Above all, and closest to a writer's heart, there are the literary letters - lettersabout art and creativity, about earning a living, about publishing and edi ting, about writing for the market, writing for art, writing for television, writing for posterity. And whether indeed it is is with his talent for infectiousness and gift for hilarity, gives us here his unsent letters - a collection ot mirth, satire, and ironic reflection that not only will answer most if not all the queries you might possibly have for him, should you ever think of dropping him a line, but will surely stand as a lasting guide tothe (mis)conduct of a literary life."

BRADBURY, Ray. Death is a Lonely Business. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1985.First Trade Edition. Pp. 277. 8vo, brown paper covered boards, black cloth spine. "Ray Bradbury's new novel, his first for 23 years, is a work of sup erb power, wit and magic: a fitting masterpiece from the master of the storytelling art. In the great tradition of Chandler and Hammett the book is a carnival of extraordinary characters - a classic mystery, a love story, anda nostalgic evocation of a time and place. The time is 1949. In Venice, Ca lifornia, they are tearing down the amusement pier. Already the roller coaster has fallen to its knees under the wrecking ball and lies scattered on the ground like dinosaur bones. And the theatre that enchanted with Chaney and Fairbanks has only one word on its marquee: goodbye. Death is everywhere. With a cast of grotesques both lovable and unlovable - from the fat diva Fannie (so fat that she can't sleep lying down) to the sexy ageing film star, from the barber with his dreams of Scott Joplin to the blind man who sees more that he lets on - Death Is a Lonely Business is a joy of a novel".

Edinburgh: Paul Harris Publishing, (1980). First P rinting. Pp. (6),7-248,(8). 8vo, black cloth spine with blue paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. A volume in the Writers of the 21st Century series. "The beautifully crafter, emotion-laden stories of Ray Bradburyhave touched the hearts and minds of millions of people all over the world . 'The Martian Chronicles' are among hte most widely read and admired science fiction stories of all time. His classic novel 'Fahrenheit 451', which Donald Watt in this book calls 'the only major symbolic dystopia of our time,' is a brilliant treatment of totalitarianism and those who struggle against it. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- the surface simplicity of his major works, Ray Bradbury has seldom been studies. This book attempts to place Bradbury in perspective both as a writer and in terms of his place in thehistory of science fiction. The latter point is an important one because B radbury is not considered a 'science fiction writer' by many of his contemporaries and critics. More often than not, he has been misunderstood, especially in regard to his attitudes toward science and progress. He has been castigated as a 'social reactionary', a middle American still living in a world that has long since passed." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. two views by Willis E. McNelly and A.

A volume in the Critical Companions to Popular Contemporary Writers series. "Reviewers and critics have not always agreed on how well the science fiction label fits Ray Bradbury, but the immense popularity of works like 'The Martian Chronicles' and 'The Illustrated Man' leaves no doubt as to the enduring status of this important writer. This Critical Companion examines, in a Literary Heritage chapter, the situation of Bradbury's works within the science fiction genre and explores thematic concerns that set works like 'Fahrenheit 451' and 'Dandelion Wine' apart from conventional popular SF writings. This introduction to Bradbury, written especially for students, traces Bradury's [sic] interesting life, examining his early literary efforts, his forays into HOllywood, and his recent writing projects." -from the rear cover.

"This study attempts to provide a phenomenological account of the reader's responseto fantasy and science-fiction literature written by the American fantasis t, Ray Bradbury (b. 1920). Why phenomenological? And why Bradbury? For a number of interrelated reasons. First of all, because when we respond to the aesthetic experience of fantasy or science fiction, we are reacting to a concrete vibrant world which we have in fact helped to create. [...Secondly...] since fantasy and science fiction are narrative arts, the tendency amongtheorists has been, understandibly to be primarily concerned with the vari ous forms that plots may take in these genres. But as far as the reading process itself is concerned, narrative and th resources of form only satisfy one particular cluster of related desires. [...] A third reason for a phenomenological approach is one that ofr the moment can only be presented negatively: reverie is both core and method in the fantasy of Ray Bradbury, but it has not been studied." - from the introduction, pp. [xi]-xiii. Contents:1. Wolfgang Iser and the Cognitive Reader; 2. Gaston Bachelard and the Sub liminative Reader; 3. Reverie and the Marvelous; 4. Reverie and the Gothic;5. Reverie and Science Fiction; 6.
