by Brandon Barrows, Hugo Petrus,

Daniel Brereton

HERE THERE BE DRAGONS by Roger Zelazny
Illustrated by Vaughn Bode
Donald Grant Publishing


Hardcover book is new. "In a tiny, isolated kingdom long ago and far away, everyone believed that the world beyond was infested with fearsome, fire-breathing dragons and no one dared venture forth. No one, that is, except William, fourth (and wisest) advisor to the king, whose bravery would change forever the course of events in the little kingdom. The princess' birthday party promised to be a gala affair. The great dining hall of the palace resounded with music. There was dancing and wine and big platters of food. There was everything that a person could possibly want at a birthday party. Except for fireworks, that is. Or a fire-breathing dragon. Illustrated with 6 full-page color illustrations as well as a full color wrap-around cover by Vaughn Bode."

WAY UP HIGH by Roger Zelazny
Illustrated by Vaughn Bode
Donald Grant Publishing


Hardcover book is new. "When Susi cut through the old orchard, shady and secret and out-of-the-way, she was alone. Then, on a fine, warm, sunny day during the last week of school she met Herman, a lonesome pterodactyl sunning himself on a rock. So began an extraordinary summer of friendship, adventure, discovery and magic. "Drink in the night," he said. "Breathe deeply. Look at the world all laid out before you, sparkling through the dark. It is your world, warm-blooded Susi, not mine." Take flight with Susi and Herman for an adventure never to be forgotten, one that will leave you filled with joy and touched with sadness. Illustrated with 6 full page color illustrations as well as a full color wrap-around cover by Vaughn Bode."

THE LITTLE PRINCE by Antoine de Saint-Exupery & Joann Sfar
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt


Hardcover book is new. "For seventy years Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince, a whimsical story with a fairy tale touch, has captured the hearts and minds of its readers. Joann Sfar has endeavored to recreate this beloved story, both honoring the original and stretching it to new heights. All the Little Prince cares about is being useful to the flower he's left behind on his very small planet, with only a few thorns to protect him from the world. Sfar's comic-book illustrations of the wide-eyed boy prince and disheveled pilot he encounters in the African desert are edgier than the original watercolors, and his style and humor work modern magic."

THE OZ BOOKS BY L. FRANK BAUM

 

 

The fourteen original Oz Books by L. Frank Baum were published between 1900 and 1920. Many more titles written by Baum's associates and successors were added to the canon in the past century. These titles have been issued in several editions including the White edition from Reilly & Lee, many of which are pictured here. The indicia of the first volume in this White edition, The Wizard of Oz, lists a copyright date of 1956. The White edition was printed around 1964-1965 and was widely available in stores through the mid-1970's. This group of Oz books are all in very good or better condition with light wear, some with noticeable soil. The black and white illustrations in this edition were reproduced from the original 1900-1920 editions. W.W. Denslow illustrated The Wizard of Oz; the rest were done by John R. Neill.

CTHULHU THE ANCIENT ONE
TRIBUTE BOX

Chronicle Books

"The signature character of author H. P. Lovecraft's darkly fantastic fiction, Cthulhu is as emblematic for Lovecraft's fans as Darth Vader is for Star Wars adherents. Both feared and worshipped in the stories, Cthulhu has since been the subject of new fiction, artwork, role-playing games, toys, and other items celebrating Lovecraft and fandom for weird tales. This totemic set includes a hand-painted figurine suitable for display or dark contemplation, an altarpiece stand, and a booklet discussing the Ancient One's place in Lovecraft and popular culture."

Neil Gaiman: The View from the Cheap Seats, Selected Nonfiction
William Morrow, New York, 2016

"An inquisitive observer, thoughtful commentator, and assiduous craftsman, Neil Gaiman has long been celebrated for the sharp intellect and startling imagination that informs his bestselling fiction. In The View from the Cheap Seats, he brings together for the first time ever more than sixty pieces of his outstanding nonfiction. Analytical yet playful, erudite yet accessible, this cornucopia explores a broad range of interests and topics, including (but not limited to): authors past and present; music; storytelling; comics; bookshops; travel; fairy tales; America; inspiration; libraries; ghosts; and the title piece, at turns touching and self-deprecating, which recounts the author's experiences at the 2010 Academy Awards in Hollywood."

BRANDON SANDERSON: WHITE SAND
Dynamite, 2016


Hardcover book is new. De blurb: "A brand new saga of magic and adventure by Brandon Sanderson! On the planet of Taldain, the legendary Sand Masters harness arcane powers to manipulate sand in spectacular ways. But when they are slaughtered in a sinister conspiracy, the weakest of their number, Kenton, believes himself to be the only survivor. With enemies closing in on all sides, Kenton forges an unlikely partnership with Khriss -- a mysterious Darksider who hides secrets of her own. White Sand brings to life a crucial, unpublished part of Brandon Sanderson's sprawling Cosmere universe. The story has been adapted by Rik Hoskin (Mercy Thompson), with art by Julius Gopez and colors by Ross Campbell. Employing powerful imagery and Sanderson's celebrated approach to magical systems, White Sand is a spectacular new saga for lovers of fantasy and adventure."

DARK KNIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY
FRANK HERBERT'S CHAPTERHOUSE: DUNE
JEFF JONES' IDYL
WILD ANIMALS I HAVE KNOWN by ERNEST THOMPSON SETON

 

DARK NIGHT:
A TRUE BATMAN STORY

DC Comics, 2016

"In this surprising original graphic novel, we see Batman in a new light - as the savior who helps a discouraged man recover from a brutal attack that left him unable to face the world. In the 1990s, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Dini had a flourishing career writing the popular Batman: The Animated Series and Tiny Toon Adventures. Walking home one evening, he was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including The Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side during his darkest moments. DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of Dini's struggle to overcome a truly desperate situation. It is a Batman story like none other. Art by Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets, Dark Knight III: The Master Race)."

WOODY GUTHRIE
AND THE DUST BOWL BALLADS

Graphic Novel by Nick Hayes
Abrams Comicarts, 2016

Hardcover book is new. "Using the sepia tones of the Dust Bowl as his palette, author and artist Nick Hayes tells the story of world-famous folkie Woody Guthrie (1912-1967), starting in the 1920s when Guthrie was a teenager supporting himself in dried-up, post-boomtown Oklahoma. Picking up a harmonica and eventually a battered guitar, Guthrie finds solace in the ancient lineage of folksong. Hayes charts the musician's course from Oklahoma and Texas towns ravaged by dust and the Depression to boxcars, factory farms, and the migrant camps of California, highlighting Guthrie's dedication to singing American folk tunes and creating his own modern classics along the way."
