Offered Here Are 4 "Scary" Books:
A Journal of Transformation
Chronicle Books, San Francisco, CA, 2010, 1st Edition
Large format softcover, very good condition
This illustrated journal was found by a group of hikers on the outskirts of Cuyahoga Valley National Park in northeastern Ohio. Its entries, kept by a young woman named "Alice," document the events of several weeks time after she and her brother are bitten by and transformed into werewolves.
Among the numerous purportedly factual werewolf accounts to have been published, scholars believe the "Alice Journal" is the only modern record likely to be true; while the terrible events described herein have not been fully substantiated, the author's contentions about lycanthropic life and death most accurately describe what is currently known about the creatures.
The whereabouts of the author are unknown. The contents of the journal are reproduced uncensored and in their entirety.
#2 MOTEL OF THE MYSTERIES
Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, MA, 1979
Large format softcover, very good condition
It is the year 4022; all of the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of detritus from a catastrophe that occurred back in 1985. Imagine, then, the excitement that Howard Carson, an amateur archeologist at best, experienced when in crossing the perimeter of an abandoned excavation site he felt the ground give way beneath him and found himself at the bottom of a shaft, which, judging from the DO NOT DISTURB sign handing from an archaic doorknob, was clearly the entrance to a still-sealed burial chamber.
In David Macaulay's depictions of this dramatic discovery, the fact that Carson's conclusions are wholly erroneous only adds to the wonderment of the find and the insights that we are given of that peculiar age.
