Ainsworth, W. Harrison.              The Elixir of Life

New English Library 0-450-02276-5 1975, 1st thus. (Mass market paperback) ... Near very good. ... Reading creases on spine and cover near spine, sticker pull. ... Auriol: or, the Elixir of Life is a novel by British historical novelist William Harrison Ainsworth. It was first published in 1844 in serial form, under the title Revelations of London. Auriol, written 1844, is slightly unusual in the Ainsworth repertoire as the action is entirely couched as a fantasy, so that the supernatural element (which occurs also, for instance, in his Guy Fawkes and his Windsor Castle) can take comparatively free rein. The story is accordingly a thoroughly gothic romance. It is in effect Ainsworth's contribution to the Faust genre. There is also a distinct connection with the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, in the kidnapping of girls theme, and in that the story concludes in the atmosphere of the lunatic's confinement (and possible recovery), and the villain of the story is his keeper. Indeed, the use of the phantasmagorical aspects of the story to create a nightmarish commentary on contemporary society of the 1830s and 1840s anticipates (in the early 19th century) the expressionism of Robert Wiene's Caligari. ... Also released as: Auriol.

Gallagher, Stephen.              Down River

New English Library 0-450-49129-3 1989, 1st edition. (Hardcover) ... Near fine in dust jacket. ... An English detective has lost his mind and is plunging into madness as this engrossing and fast-reading thriller unfolds. Knowing that Johnny Mays's "methods" violate English law as well police policies, partner and boyhood friend Nick Frazier tries to bring him in line. But Mays is adamant that he is England's "avenging angel," and he keeps filling his "book" with names of society's "enemies." His paranoid delusions spur him to a vicious car chase that Frazier tries to stop, but his efforts just get him listed in the "book"; Mays apparently dies in a crash. Having been saved by an unsuspecting samaritan, however, Mays embarks on a mission of vengeance that leaves no doubt that he is alive. Frazier searches for him "down river," back where they grew up, and amid vividly hewn scenes of a coastal village, tries to rein in his far-gone pal and save a woman who had once played a part in each of their lives. The denouement, thanks to Gallagher's strong writing and excellent characterizations, is unforgettable. ... Signed by Stephen Gallagher.... For better customer service, this book is stored in an Amazon US warehouse, and is available to be shipped by Amazon to all countries except Canada.

Wharton, Edith.              The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton

Popular Library 0-445-08507-X 1976. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... Light spine creases. Date in pen inside. ... Traumatised by ghost stories in her youth, Pulitzer Prize winning author Edith Wharton (1862 -1937) channelled her fear and obsession into creating a series of spine-tingling tales filled with spirits beyond the grave and other supernatural phenomena. While claiming not to believe in ghosts, paradoxically she did confess that she was frightened of them. Wharton imbues this potent irrational and imaginative fear into her ghostly fiction to great effect. In this unique collection of finely wrought tales Wharton demonstrates her mastery of the ghost story genre. Amongst the many supernatural treats within these pages you will encounter a married farmer bewitched by a dead girl; a ghostly bell which saves a woman's reputation; the weird spectral eyes which terrorise the midnight hours of an elderly aesthete; the haunted man who receives letters from his dead wife; and the frightening power of a doppelganger which foreshadows a terrible tragedy. Compelling, rich and strange, the ghost stories of Edith Wharton, like vintage wine, have matured and grown more potent with the passing years. ... Includes Afterward, All Souls', An Autobiographical Postscript, Bewitched, The Eyes, Kerfol, The Lady's Maid's Bell, The Looking Glass, Miss Mary Pask, Mr. Jones, Pomegranate Seed & The Triumph of Night.
