1215 Brust, Steven To Reign In Hell Deluxe Limited Edition Hard Cover Steel Dragon Press (Steeldragon) 1984 Minnesota Near Fine Near Fine Author's First Novel. This is the Deluxe Limited Edition limited to 1000 copies, of which this is numbered 428. Signed by both Steven Brust and Kathleen Marschall the illustrator. A VERY praising Introduction by Roger Zelazny. Numerous black & white illustrations by Kathleen Marschall. Since it appears that there are 3 signatures, many believe that Zelazny signed this also. I've compared the scrawl to both autographs of Brust & Zelazny I have in other books and Zelazny has NOT signed this edition. I've also compared with another dealer friend who has the same edition. He believes, and so do I, that Brust signed his full name Steven K(arl) Zoltan Brust spanning 4 close lines of signature. The book is bound in a Collector's quality binding using acid free paper for extended life. Brust is little spoken of, but those who have experienced his writing are die-hard fans. Much like those of Daniel Keys Moran. Brusts Taltos & Khavvren sagas are intelligent, both action packed and humorous, thought provoking, and can be read several times over in full enjoyment. To Reign In Hell is the first of his books I read, and I come back to it once a year. Here's jacket copy by Brust: From all of my reading on the revolt of the angels, two things are clear: God is omnipotent, and Satan is not a fool. There seems to be a contradiction here.. Both a stellar read and nice volume for a collector's library. The book is clean and tight showing little to no shelfwear. The gilt to the front board and spine is still bright and shiny. Aside from the limitation page, internally clean and free of markings. The dust jacket is crisp and free of wear, covered with a brodart. Protected in an acid-free bag.

He then goes on to share that in all of his writing to her about his dreams and mystical experiences, he has figured it out to be a Rebirth experience. He spends a good chunk of page 2 defining his inner being, named Firebright. This was also supposed to be the 4th installment in Rickman's series but it never made it to publication. He talks about a visit with Isa his daughter, his love for Tessa, and his hope to buy back Scanner from Doubleday. Considering the age, these pages are in very nice condition.

There is no staining to the pages. However, there appears to be a hint of bleeding to the penned signature, as if maybe a drop of water hit it. There is no smearing or loss of text, just a little bit of a bluish background to the signature. The pages are now preserved in an acid-free back with an acid-free backing board between them, making each page readable without having to remove and handle them.

He claimed he couldn't send it directly to Stanislaw Lem: 'as we are not speaking, since he stole my pencil-box during recess.' Except for 8 lines, the whole second page is a dream sequence he made up of Stanislaw Lem and 'these double-domed Marxist intellectuals' discussing the introduction and his comments.

In this letter, Phil writes of a recurring dream he had about a specific but unknown (to him) book. He felt he was supposed to read it, and he had been attempting to determine the title based on clues in the dreams. After three months of these dreams, he finally found the book only to find that it was the dullest book in the world. In the P.S., he comments that: you should never take your dreams too seriously. Or else it shows that the unconscious or the universe or God or whatever can put you on. Considering the age, these pages are in very nice condition.

Typed Letter Signed By Philip K Dick To Claudia Bush Dated March 4 1975 (TLS) First Edition Paper Manuscript 1975 Very Good A typewritten, hand-signed letter from the science fiction author Philip K.

There are 92 typewritten lines plus the handwritten signature: Love Phil, with the arrow/heart penned also. The letter has been reprinted in "The Selected Letters of Philip K.

Not only does this carry carry his signature, but it also shows editing after the fact in the form of corrections for punctuation and spacing. Additionally, this has a typed P.S. and handwritten PPS that were NOT included in the book. Why Underwood/Miller didn't at least include the typed PS, I have no idea. In this letter, Phil quotes 3 passages from SFS written by Jameson. He considers Jameson to be brilliant in his criticism of his work, with Jameson 'alluding that somehow language is a set in which salvation can overcome the evil of physical power'. Phil begins to draw parallels between the Greek Plays at the time of the theater in Athens, where they were chanted and sung, to the Prose of modern times. He really gets to the meat of it at the end, when he writes: 'General Semantics, is totally insane. Words are real – if coupled with something else. They are signals. Like when you see a red light along the road. It is real, but it refers to something, a context. But to say, That red light is an illusion, is to deny the reality of the context as well: and the power of that context to give or take life.' Considering the age, these pages are in very nice condition. The upper left corner shows holes where the staple was removed. There is no tearing so I assume a staple remover was used, and there is also no rusting. The pages themselves are well preserved.

Seven words to the first page, and significantly more to the second. Additionally the back of page 2 has more mundane notes in pen. I believe he was writing down directions, but it's possibly written by Claudia also. In this letter, Phil continues from a previous letter. He's still trying to understand his prophetic dreams which began in March of that year. He cites John Calvin and Lewis Mumford in describing his experiences. The language in this letter gets quite vulgar at a couple of points. His humor is apparent in the closing prior to the P.S. He writes: Well I got to go because a lot of publicans and sinners, tax collectors and other riffraff abound, and I must deal with them. Considering the age, these pages are in very nice condition. The upper left corner shows holes where the staple was removed. There is no tearing or rusting at the point of removal. The pages themselves are well preserved.
