Shiel, M[atthew] P[hipps]: SHAPES IN THE FIRE, Being a Mid-winter-night's Entertainment in Two Parts and an Interlude. North Yorkshire, UK: Tartarus, 2000. First Edition Thus, of the 1896 rarity plus extras. Fine hardcover in Fine dust jacket. Limited to 300 numbered copies, elegantly bound with embossed pictorial cloth, with even a bookmark ribbon. Illustrated by W. Graham Robertson. This was a needed reissue of one of the rarest of sought-after volumes of High Decadent mysteries and weird tales. Even such a well known piece as "Xelucha" is given in other editions in a shortened version, and here's the complete tale. Most of the content will be completely unknown to everyone, the true first edition is so impossibly rare. Alas with only 300 copies this special edition doesn't, a decade later, make these works exactly easy to get. The 1896 John Lane Bodley Head original values around $1,300. The Tartarus limited catalogs in the $275 to $500 range. Author and Decadence expert Brian Stableford provides an introductory essay, "Jaunting on the Scoriac Tempests and Reeling Bullions of Hell.
