Descripción

1st printing of the first British hardcover edition SIGNED by the late Colin Wilson on the title page in black ink, with a stroke through his printed name. No inscription. INCLUDED is an issue of Firsts: The Book Collector's Magazine (March 1998), featuring an article entitled "Collecting Colin Wilson, " which includes an interview with the author and a selected checklist of his publications to that date. The book is tight with sharp corners. Tanning to the page edges typical of UK publications. A small patch has been lifted from the surface of the ffep at its top edge, presumably from an erasure. The black dustjacket is crisp with price intact and shows virtually no rubbing. Two short, vertical wrinkles along the top edge of the back panel. Tanning to the top edge of both flaps. A splendid copy of a book scarce signed. NOTE: when he was last in Toronto, Wilson said that he wrote a sequel to The Space Vampires which will be published posthumously for the benefit of his estate. Filmed as "Lifeforce" in 1985, and a television series of the same name is in development. The Space Vampires combines "psychic possession, murder, sex crimes, science fantasy and the Dracula legend." By the author of The Outsider. Canadian orders will be charged GST.

Sinopsis:

Circa 2100

A scourge of sex and death from an alien spaceship

WHEN CAPTAIN CARLSEN ENTERED THE VAST DERELICT SPACESHIP, he was shaken by the discovery of its immobilized humanoid passengers.

Later, after three of the strange aliens had been transported to Earth, his foreboding was more than justifi ed. The creatures were energy vampires whose seductive embraces were fatal, whose lust for vitality was boundless. As they took over the willing bodies of their victims and sexual murders spread terror throughout the land, Carlsen worked toward their destruction-even while he was erotically drawn to the most beautiful vampire of all!

 "Thoroughly intriguing" -Chicago Sun-Times (1976)

"New slant on horror...unique rendering of the age-old enigma of the kiss of death" -Chicago Tribune (1976)

COLIN WILSON is the author of more than 100 fiction and nonfiction books. The Outsider (1956), published at the age of 24, earned him worldwide critical acclaim. The Space Vampires, his fi fty-fi rst book, was translated into Spanish, Japanese, French, Dutch and Swedish and was later adapted for screen in the movie LIFEFORCE, directed by Tobe Hooper (SALEM'S LOT, POLTERGEIST, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE). The movie failed however to capture the true spirit of the cult classic reprinted here by popular demand.
