Arkham House, Mycroft and Moran, and Fedogan and Bremer Books

At the request of several of our customers, we have started a page for the books of Arkham House and related publishers. It's in sort of three sections, New Books,   Used/OP Books,  and the Arkham "Short List". We have often been asked about which books are out of print at Arkham. A list is available at Arkham & Mycroft and Moran OP Books

We do not, at this time, carry all in print books by these publishers, but we do keep adding to the list and we can order any book you like carried by Arkham House. The number of used and out of print books will will flucuate as we sell what we have and buy other copies for inventory.

Repeat customers through our site receive a 10% discount including the in-print books. So, if there is a book you would like to order from these publishers we can order it for you. Just e-mail us at info@whiteunicornbooks.com.

Our latest arrivals (including those books back in stock) are At one time, we also listed some of the sold books on this page. There were several reasons for that, but the number of sold books became so large that they started to dominate the page. So, we moved that list to SOLD List

We try to keep this page up to date both for the addition of books and "deletion" of sold books, but are not always successful. PLEASE, if you find a mistake, notify us. We would also like to hear from you with comments or whatever even if you don't find mistakes. Thanks for looking -

From the Publisher:
“Other Worlds Than Ours” is Nelson Bond's 3rd book for Arkham House. It follows 1968’s “Nightmares and Daydreams” and 2002’s “The Far Side of Nowhere.” Both rank among Arkham House’s fastest sellers, proving once again that Nelson Bond's reputation as a writer of fantasy fiction continues long after he ceased writing for publication. This collection draws upon previously uncollected SF tales from the 1940s. The majority are hard to find novelettes originally published in Blue Book, Astounding, Thrilling Wonder Stories, Planet Stories and Amazing Stories. There is also a complete novel, the exciting “Gods of the Jungle,” which appeared in the June and July 1942 issues of Amazing Stories. An American pilot during World War II is forced to land in the jungle where he discovers an ancient temple that leads him to an ancient civilization founded by visitors to Earth. The remaining 12 stories are grouped according to their subjects and cover travel to remote and distant planets in the universe, where travelers meet unusual adventures and sometimes terrifying creatures who inhabit remote planets and moons. “Martian Caravan” and “Wanderers of the Wolf Moon” are two rare and hard to find tales that will haunt you for a long time. Arkham House has already contracted for another Nelson Bond book, “Probability Zero*, It will appear in the next few years and will publish many of his previously forgotten fantasy tales, and another long-lost novel.

Biography, Brand New, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Horror
From the Publisher:
In the years following H.P. Lovecraft's premature death in 1937, many of his friends and admirers were moved to write down their personal impressions of the man. These reminiscences appeared mainly in obscure amateur journals or in such early Arkham House volumes as Marginalia and Something About Cats. Peter Cannon, author of the critical and biographical study of H.P. Lovecraft (1989), has now gathered in one large volume all the major shorter memoirs, as well as a selection of early criticism and some rare contemporary glimpses from the amateur press before Lovecraft made his mark in Weird Tales. Here are such classic tributes as Winfield Townley Scott's His Own Most Fantastic Creation and W. Paul Cook's complete In Memoriam, together with more recent accounts such as Kenneth Sterling's Caverns Measureless to Man and Mara Kirk Hart's fascinating portrait of the Kalem Club as revealed through the letters of her father. Divided into seven sections Neighbors, Amateurs, Kalems, Ladies, Professionals, Fans, Critics, and illustrated throughout with vintage photographs, Lovecraft Remembered brings the master fantasist alive in the words of those who knew him best, from his former wife, Sonia Davis, to his closest friend, Frank Belknap Long.

MacLeod, Ian R.
 Voyages by Starlight
WI Arkham House 1996, ISBN: 0870541714, Illustrated by Jainschigg, Nickolas
269 pages; Fine/Fine. New Fantastic DJ by Nicholas Jainschigg. From Sixty Years of Arkham House: "2542 copies printed. MacLeod (b. 1956) is a English author; this is his first published volume, consisting of stories published in horror and science fiction magazines between 1990 and 1995." From Publishers Weekly:"In stride with MacLeod's haunting first novel (The Great Wheel; Forecasts, June 30) comes this first collection of his acclaimed short fiction. The 10 stories included here combine elements of horror, fantasy, SF and realistic fiction as expressed by an assured literary voice. Settings range from the future ("Starship Day"; "The Perfect Stranger"; "Papa") to a present-day world identical to ours except for the existence of dream telepathy ("Ellen O'Hara," a story of the Irish Troubles). "Grownups" presents a culture of three sexes (men, women and uncles), and "The Giving Mouth" takes place in a fantasy landscape of mining, coal and smoke, where knights in animated armor ride steamhorses made of "liveiron." In all the tales, the fantastic blends seamlessly with the realistic. Above all, the stories focus on people, relationships and the human condition, which MacLeod imagines as melancholy and fatalistic ("Marnie") or horrific ("1/72nd Scale"). MacLeod's originality enriches and enlivens the genre, and his fiction--though often grim--should be read by everyone looking for something that is truly out of the ordinary."

This unique and important anthology is required reading for everyone who enjoys weird fiction, and is interested in learning more about Arkham House, its founder, and the writers who made the era from 1939 to 1971 one of the most exciting in the history of specialty press publishing.

"From F. Paul Wilson and Bruce Sterling to Kim Newman and Esther Friesner, a dazzling array of 18 superbly talented writers is represented in CTHULHU 2000. The range of Lovecraft-inspired stories is as impressive as is the storytelling talents of the contributing authors. From Fred Chappel's 'The Adder' to Gahan Wilson's 'H.P.L.,' to Ramsey Campbell's 'The Face at Pine Dunes'...is a 'must' for every fan of Lovecraftian-style horror fantasy!" -- The Bookwatch
