001215 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.

002157 Dick, Philip K. Typed Letter Signed By Philip K Dick To Claudia Bush Dated April 6 1975 (TLS) First Edition Paper Manuscript 1975 Very Good A typewritten, hand-signed letter from the science fiction author Philip K. Dick, addressed to "Dear Claudia ". Dated April 6, 1975. The letter is single-spaced spanning 2 pages. There are 102 typewritten lines plus the handwritten signature: Love Phil, with a penned drawing of a type of Darwinian fish. The letter has been reprinted in "The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1975" [Underwood-Miller 1992, pp. 150-52]. This is the actual typed page with the original signature, NOT THE CARBON COPY. Not only does this carry carry his signature (first name only), but it also shows editing after the fact in the form of corrections for punctuation and spacing. There is also an added handwritten short sentence. In this letter, Phil gives congratulations on Claudia nearly finishing her thesis, which is what began this correspondence initially. 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. 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. There is no tearing to the edges, with minor and faint creasing from where the letter was folded and put in to the envelope. The folds are not soft, therefore the paper is not tearing or fraying. 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.

In this letter, Phil has an epiphany that the dreams he's been having since March were not of many singular sources, but the “World view and knowledge, the gnosis and secret wisdom of the Essenes”. He quotes Will Durant in defining the Essenes, and dives into religion, ancient history and Bishop Pike. He ends the letter with a cryptic song lyric which his Sibyl sang to him in his previous nights dream. Considering the age, these pages are in very nice condition.

Typed Letter Signed By Philip K Dick To Claudia Bush Dated July 5 1974 (TLS) First Edition Paper Manuscript 1974 Very Good A typewritten, hand-signed letter from the science fiction author Philip K. Dick, addressed to "Dear Claudia ". Dated July 5, 1974. The letter is single-spaced spanning 2 pages. There are 62 typewritten lines plus the handwritten signature: Phil. The letter has been reprinted in "The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1974" [Underwood-Miller 1991, pp. 156-57]. This is the actual typed page with the original signature, NOT THE CARBON COPY. Not only does this have his HANDWRITTEN signature (first name over typed full name), but it also shows his editing after the fact. A crossed out letter, underlining for emphasis, and an added word. 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. 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. There is no tearing to the edges, and minor and faint creasing from where the letter was folded and put in to the envelope. The folds are not soft, therefore the paper is not tearing or fraying.

The letter has been reprinted in "The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1974" [Underwood-Miller 1991, pp. 148-50]. This is the actual typed page with the original signature, NOT THE CARBON COPY. Not only does this have his HANDWRITTEN signature (first name over typed full name), but it also shows his editing after the fact. Various hand-edits for spelling, emphasis, placement etc. This includes a P.S.(3 short handwritten lines at the lower margin of the first page), P.P.S.(typed, upper right corner 1st page), and P.P.P.S. (typed full second page), with the 2 latter being INITIALED PKD. There are also 2 arrowed hearts penned by Phil. In this letter, Phil included an article by Stanislaus Lem (not present) regarding Flow My Tears. This is 1 of 2 letters I have regarding S Lem, and this has the most content. He also touches briefly on his sequel to High Castle, VALISYSTEM A. He also talks about Lem's interpretation of UBIK. 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. There is no tearing to the edges, and minor and faint creasing from where the letter was folded and put in to the envelope. The folds are not soft, therefore the paper is not tearing or fraying. There are some minor stains, looking like either coffee or water. There are 8 stains total (4 corresponding on each page), with 4 of them in the text (no smearing or loss of text visibility). Two stains are at the lower right corner (first page) lower left (right page). On page 1, there is smearing to the heart/arrow drawing, but it's still visible just less bold. 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.

002156 Dick, Philip K. 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. Dick, addressed to "Dear Claudia ". Dated March 4, 1975. The letter is single-spaced spanning 2 pages. 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. Dick 1975" [Underwood-Miller 1991, pp. 129-31]. This is the actual typed page with the original signature, NOT THE CARBON COPY. 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. There is no tearing to the edges, with minor and faint creasing from where the letter was folded and put in to the envelope. The folds are not soft, therefore the paper is not tearing or fraying. There is a faint stain to the lower right corner/margin of page one with a corresponding stain to page 2. There is no smearing or loss of text or 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.

001634 Dick, Philip K. Typed Letter Signed By Philip K Dick To Claudia Bush Dated November 30 1974 (TLS) First Edition Paper Manuscript 1974 Very Good A typewritten, hand-signed letter from the science fiction author Philip K. Dick, addressed to "Dear Claudia ". Dated November 30, 1974. The letter is single-spaced spanning 2 pages. There are 86 typewritten lines plus the handwritten signature: Phil, with the arrow/heart penned also. The letter has been reprinted in "The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1974" [Underwood-Miller 1991, pp. 294-96]. This is the actual typed page with the original signature, NOT THE CARBON COPY. Not only does this have his HANDWRITTEN signature (first name over typed name with the heart/arrow drawing), but it also shows his editing after the fact, in the form of added writing to both pages. 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. There is no tearing to the edges, and minor and faint creasing from where the letter was folded and put in to the envelope. The folds are not soft, therefore the paper is not tearing or fraying. There is a faint stain to the upper right corner of the first page and corresponding let corner of the second. The stain is faint, but page 2 there is minor spreading of the ink from his penned writing in the margin. There is no obliteration to the words, and it's only affecting a few letters. 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.
