WINTER MOON, Koontz, Dean
21 Koontz, Dean WINTER MOON
Bantam 2001 0553582933 / 9780553582932 Paperback Very Good+ 
A brush with death prompts L.A. policeman Jack McGarvey to move wife Heathe r and son Toby up to Quartermass Ranch, a Montana estate bequeathed to them by Eduardo Fernandez, the father of Jack's former partner. The McGarveys s ettle in, dismissing strange noises and smells, as well as weird trances th at seem to grip Toby from time to time, as the embodiment of common fears o f urbanites confronted by open spaces. It seems Eduardo had had uninvited v isitors: the Givers, creatures from another dimension who came for an incom prehensible, apparently evil purpose. Scared out of his wits, Ed succumbed to a heart attack, but not before scrawling his discovery on a legal pad an d stashing it in the freezer. These Givers are actually takers, assuming co ntrol of bodies and corpses to use them as vehicles in which to create mayh em. And now they want control of Toby. Bestselling author Koontz ( Hideaway ) exploits and occasionally skewers many horror novel and film conventions --including telepathic mind control games and the obligatory "surprise" bli zzard during the climatic battle--to great effect while building tension in this gripping parable about the real cost of "getting away from it all."

33 Rice, Anne BLOOD CANTICLE (THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES)
Knopf 2003 037541200X / 9780375412004 1st Edition Hardcover As New/As New 
A tight clean first edition/printing, protected in a new brodart wrapper, n ot price clipped/ex library or a book of the month edition. For her 25th fan-pleasing outing, Rice reunites some of her most popular creations and, for the first time since Memnoch the Devil (1995), lets the Vampire Lestat "write" the book. Taking up where last year's Blackwood Farm ended, the now-doppelganger-free Quinn Blackwood and Lestat save Quinn's true love, the witch Mona Mayfair, from certain death by making her an immortal. In his effort to attain sainthood, Lestat must deal with a lot of metaphysical angst. The opulent Blackwood estate and its spooky swamps, as well as New Orleans and a Caribbean isle, provide the settings for many elegant costume changes as the exquisite vampiric triumvirate gleefully suck several deserving victims dry and lay waste to dozens of a drug lord's minions. The vampirisation of young Mona, a true child of our times, gives Rice a dynamic new vampire personality with whom to play. Writing as if her blood-inked quill were afire, Rice seems truly possessed by her Brat Prince of darkness as she races through the story. She sometimes slights members of the vast supporting cast, both dead and alive, but neatly ties up all their loose ends. The complete unification of the Mayfair witch saga with that of the Vampire Chronicles provides either a befitting end or a new beginning for the Queen of the Vampires.

A wonderful tight clean copy, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this i s not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. "At the center is the beautiful, unconquerable witch Merrick. She is a descendant of the gens de couleur libres, a society of New Orleans octoroons and quadroons steeped in the lore and ceremony of voodoo, who reigned in the shadowy world where African and French - the dark and the white - intermingled. Her ancestors are the great Mayfair Witches, of whom she knows nothing - and from whom she inherits the power and the magical knowledge of a Circe." "Into this exotic realm comes David Talbot - hero, storyteller, adventurer, almost-mortal vampire, visitor from another dark realm. It is he who recounts Merrick's haunting tale - a tale that takes us from the New Orleans of past and present to the jungles of Guatemala, from the Maya ruins of a century ago to ancient civilizations not yet explored."

39 Rice, Anne THE TALE OF THE BODY THIEF : THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES (VAMPIRE CHRONICLES)
Knopf 1992 0679405283 / 9780679405283 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A wonderful tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscri ptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. It's been said that Vladimir Nabokov's best novels are the ones he wrote after starting a failed novel. Anne Rice wrote The Body Thief, the fourth thrilling episode of her Vampire Chronicles, right after she spent a long time poring over that most romantic of horror novels, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, to research a novel Rice abandoned about an artificial man. Perhaps as a result of Shelley's influence, The Body Thief is far more psychologically penetrating than its predecessors, with a laser-like focus on a single tormented soul. Oh, we meet some wild new characters, and Rice's toothsome vampire-hero Lestat zooms around the globe--as is his magical habit--from Miami to the Gobi desert, but he's in such despair that he trades his immortal body to a con man named Raglan James, who offers him in return two days of strictly mortal bliss.

One of its characters, Lestat, encouraged by the telling of that story, narrates his own history, focusing on his boy hood transformation, subsequent wanderings, and constant attempts to ration alize his newly acquired immortality. Don't expect the usual stake-in-the-h eart story; Rice is creating a new vampire mythos, mixing ancient Egyptian legends into her narrative, and weaving a rich and unforgettable tale of da zzling scenes and vivid personalities. This extraordinary book outclasses m ost contemporary horror fiction and is a novel to be savored.
