First Edition Thus Glossy Pictorial Wraps AS NEW in WRAPS 8vo (5-1/2 x 8-1/4), 329 pp. Trape Paperback is AS NEW, UNREAD, UNMARKED, in glossy pictorial wraps -- no rips, crimps,. creases. When I first read this book -- after having read Mr Hansen's previous major work -- "The Chess Garden" -- I said "This is a book for people who didn't know how to enjoy the magic of Chess Garden." And I realized, after finishing it -- it also teaches them how to do that. If you enjoy things magical to begin with, it's a true delight -- a by-the-book early Freudian Therapist using hypnosis, loving music but not understanding why, unable to understand the dreams of the young woman as a form of reality... brilliant and fun.

JEHOVAH CONTRACT: A Fantastic Novel of Suspense.

By Koman, Victor.

New York: Franklin Watts, 1987. First Edition, First Printing 1/4 cloth AS NEW in AS NEW DJ 8vo (6-1/4 x 9-1/4) hardbound book in glossy pictorial DJ, SIGNED and DATED (4 July '87) by the author. Both book and DJ are AS NEW -- no flaws, marks, tears, rips, scuffs, etc. DJ is protected in poly cover to maintain its impeccable condition. Cover is 1/4 cloth, aqua blue boards with dark blue cloth spine, silver type on spine. An amazing fantasy -- our protagonist (I'm reluctant to say 'hero') is an over-the-hill assassin dying of cancer and not caring about it anymore. Until he was offered a contract: kill Jehovah and get paid with eternal life. Piers Anthony said, in 1987, the book would be denounced in both literary and religious circles. Imagine trying to get it published today, about 20 years later. A true fast-moving, complex, high adventure story with -- obviously -- mythic, spiritual, and religious aspects. (The book was translated into German and published in that country in 1985 as "Der Jehovah-Vertag.")
