About The Book

This is a First UK edition paperback novella (98 pages).  New and unread.  A cosmic horror novella in the tradition of H P Lovecraft’s The Colour out of Space.

SIGNED by Gary Fry.

SYNOPSIS:  “When a large chunk of cliff-side collapses in the English seaside town of Whitby,  authorities rush to secure it. But a local writer, out walking that morning, notices how workmen transfer something from the cliff that doesn’t appear to resemble any creature which has ever lived on earth. That is when things start changing in the town. Hallucinations, bad dreams, violence, and even murder escalate, and it’s up to the writer to figure out what’s going on.”

Take Their Word For It

  • Michel Buyer of “The Sea of Blood”

    The book arrived safely this morning thanks to the perfect protection of your packaging. It was really a pleasure to deal with you. "The Sea of Blood" is a beautiful production for Reggie Oliver's stories and no doubt will be a collector item in the near future. Thanks again for the quickness of your service.
  • Dr Gilbert Buyer of “Dead in the Water”

    Book arrived safely today, and I must say how pleased I am with it. Carefully & accurately described; expertly packed; swiftly despatched; and courteous communication. It is a pleasure to find a real bookseller - speaking as a retired bookseller myself!
  • Chris Elwell Buyer of “Rage Master & Butterfly ”

    Well what can I say? The books have arrived this morning and suffice to say I'm one happy bunny. Not only have I got grade A service from you but the care and attention you pay to getting the books out in one piece is mind boggling.
    You will most definitely be my first port of call for buying books in the future as this is the single best online experience I've ever had of buying books. And I've bought quite a few.
    Thank you so much for the entire experience. I will be recommending you far and wide.
  • Steve Woodland Buyer of “Children of Time ”

    Most of us buy things on line all the time, and the service is, as we all know, variable. Sometimes you buy something and it stands out as being a special transaction and you just feel you’d like to tell others in the hope that they will buy something from the same place and have similar experiences. So it was with my recent purchase of Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky.

  • Ian McDonald Buyer of “Two for the Money and Fake ID”

    Books arrived on Saturday, thank you very much, but it has only been today (Monday) that I managed to finally get into them :) Only joking of course but it is nice to see someone who takes good care of their books and who is particular about how they should be sent through the post.
  • Charlie Dudgeon Buyer of “Dark Corners”

    Jeff, just to let you know I really appreciated the service you gave me on buying "Dark Corners" by Stephen Volk. Friendly and prompt communication, swift arrival, tightly packed, and excellent condition. Everyone else on Amazon and Abebooks was selling this for silly money, but your price was more than reasonable. Heartily recommend. Keep up the good work.
  • Kieron Buyer of “Dominion & Conquest (HB and Proof)”

    I was delighted with the condition of the books, with your fast friendly service, and with your packaging, which I'm pretty sure is the best I've seen in ten years using e-bay and Abebooks. I'll certainly be back soon
