A SIGNED NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION (150 copies only) hardback published by Arcane Wisdom (an imprint of Bloodletting Press)with a stated “FIRST HARDCOVER EDITION”. This is #136 of 150 and is signed by both authors. “The Great Wyrm Ouroboros – the ceaseless cycle of destruction and renewal. In a small coastal town, an ancient force stirs, drawn by the cumulative power of life and death, grief and sorrow, and, ultimately, endless love. Ouroboros – life out of death. Tom Christiansen’s wife of 35-years, Dolly, is dead. His world suddenly shattered, Tom takes refuge in his house to grieve and reflect. Tom’s thin veil of reality and fantasy begins to crack and slip. He hears things: the rusty creak of the backyard swing; the tap of tiny feet from an upstairs room. And he sees things, as well: a small rubber ball bouncing slowly down the stairs; birds like silent sentinels on electrical wires; a strange little pig-tailed girl suddenly appearing in his yard. And what is that mysterious figure lying in the upstairs bed that he used to share with his beloved wife? Ouroboros – a new cycle has begun. Tom’s long-time neighbors, and dearest friends, Mick and Robbie Hamlin begin to glimpse strange behavior from grief-stricken Tom. They witness dinner place-settings for two. They hear hushed conversations from the old house, as if Tom is speaking to himself, as if he isn’t alone. There is a pale little girl in the backyard, swinging ceaselessly. And something is rustling in the bushes, peering out from the undergrowth with inquisitive eyes. Ouroboros – the end is just the beginning.” The book is in MINT and UNREAD condition and was published without a dustjacket . Cover artwork is bound into the book as a frontispiece.
