All Heads Turn When the Hunt Goes By by John Farris Signed Limited Edition Hardcover

Arguably one of the greatest horror novels of the 1970s, John Farris’s All Heads Turn When the Hunt Goes By is a stunning Southern Gothic encompassing the occult and ancient family curses. It opens with one of the most notorious chapters in horror history: a brutal bloodbath at a military wedding. It is an intricately weaved work of plot and subplot.

This new edition has a fine introduction by Brian Hodge, the complete novel in a stunning presentation on heavy textured paper, four new artworks by David Ho, created just for this edition, and high-resolution reproductions of the original hardcover and paperback editions. Each copy is signed by John Farris, David Ho, and Brian Hodge. The edition is limited to just 200 copies for sale. There has been a lot of interest in this title, which has been in production here for the last eight years. Now it is finally, finally! ready to ship! We can tell you one thing, it won’t be around long.

The book is bound in cloth with printed cloth front and rear panels, and comes enclosed in a cloth slipcase. The book has two ribbon markers and a top-edge stain of dark green. The book measures 7 x 10 inches and is a nice, heavy, easy-to-read, book, one of the best we’ve done.

Brood of the Witch-Queen by Sax Rohmer

Sax Rohmer (1883-1959) was a celebrated and prolific British writer and the creator of Fu Manchu. He was the author of such famous novels as The Green Eyes of Bast and The Bat Flies Low. What is not well known, however, is that Rohmer was also a prodigious author of short stories of weirdness and terror. Over the course of his career he wrote dozens of stories collected in several volumes that have now become scarce collector’s items.

This volume presents fifteen stories by Rohmer, taken from such rare collections as Tales of Secret Egypt and The Haunting of Low Fennel. They feature Rohmer’s patented mix of exotic settings, supernaturalism, and adventure. Among them are such famous stories as "Tchériapin," a tale of a mad chemist; "The Curse of a Thousand Kisses," about a centuries-old curse; "Lord of the Jackals," a haunting account of love and death in Egypt; and "The Haunting of Low Fennel," a classic haunted house story. Also included is the full-length novel Brood of the Witch-Queen, one of the finest novels of Egyptian horror ever published.

This signed limited edition is just 300 copies. The dustjacket is the work of David Ho, with the interior illustrations by Swiss artist Gwabryel. At over 500 pages, with twelve stories and one full-length novel, this is the only edition of Sax Rohmer’s weird fiction in print.

Nightmare Alley by William Lindsay Gresham

Few hardboiled novels of the 1940s have earned as avid a following as William Lindsay Gresham’s Nightmare Alley. An immediate sensation when it appeared in 1946, the book spawned a classic film starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell, sowed the seeds for the literary subgenre of carnival noir, and introduced to the pop-culture vocabulary the term "geek."      

Nightmare Alley follows the exploits of Stanton Carlisle, a ruthless hustler who learns the tricks of the carny trade and uses them to establish himself as a spiritual guru, preying on the wealthy and the weak. Carlisle’s determined rise to power and inevitable plunge into depravity is more than great drama, it is an evisceration of the postwar American dream, told by a writer whose hard-luck life was just as compelling as his character’s.
      
Collected in this volume is a sampling of Gresham’s other carnival-themed work: essays offering first-hand observations of life beneath the canvas tops. These essays have been long unavailable.
      
An essay by Bret Wood, "William Lindsay Gresham: The Disillusionist," explores the novelist’s fascination with carnivals, magic, and spiritualism; and Gresham’s lifelong crusade to extract the carefully-guarded secrets that lay hidden within.
      
This handsome edition features striking dustjacket and interior art by David Ho, sumptuous cloth binding with blind stamping and onlay images, Tarot card images in the interior, photographs, article illustrations, original magazine art, movie posters, and much more.
      
Nightmare Alley is one of the most highly regarded crime novels ever published. This edition is a fitting testament to an American classic. You will want this superb book for your shelf.

  1. Buy this book

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Mar 2014

    I have not read this book yet,but I am familiar with Sax Romer, having read a number of his stories in paperback. I was not looking to buy a Romer book when I came across this one on the Dark Regions website, but could not pass it up once I saw it. In additon to being hard cover the book is also stunningly beautiful. It's well worth the price and I'm sure once I read it it's value to me will be even greater. This is one to add to your collection.
