Slippage (Mariner, 1st Trade Paperback Edition; Glossy Cover Variant) – BLOOD’S BARGAINS


BLOOD’S BARGAINs  are books that have sustained cosmetic damage but are still readable. From badly aligned spines and miscut covers to serious bumps, bruises, and scuffs, think of these as books Blood salvaged from the post-apocalyptic wastes in an effort to civilize Vic.

Harlan Ellison’s 1997 collection contains 21 stories, including the Bram Stoker Award-winning stories “Mefisto in Onyx” and “Chatting with Anubis” plus “The Man Who Rowed Christopher Columbus Ashore,” which was featured in THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES: 1993.

This printing of approximately 450 copies featured glossy Mylar covers rather than the matte finish on the typical Mariner paperback.
