AEGYPT

Author: Crowley, John
Price: $195.00
Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Bantam Spectre
Year Published: 1987
First edition. A review copy with publicity sheet laid in of this Pringle 100 fantasy novel. In addition this copy is signed. The first of a projected tetralogy, the first two of which made Harold Bloom's "Western Canon". Crowley's first three novels were published as science fiction, Bantam published his prior novel Little, Big as a paperback original, which nevertheless helped establish him as Kirkus Review said, as "becoming the American writer against whom all others will have to be measured". Aegypt was a great success critically, but by the third book in the tetralogy (he had signed a contract with another publisher) his publisher seemed to have lost interest in him. So it goes some times even for great writers. This is the somewhat uncommon hardcover in a lightly worn dust jacket, overall near fine.
