About this title:

Synopsis: Best friends Tom Flanagan and Del Nightingale, apprentices to a master magician, enter a dark realm of immeasurable evil, more ancient than death itself, where only one of them will survive.

Review: First setting: an all-male prep school in Arizona, where two sensitive freshmen form a bond based on their interest in magic tricks. Second setting: the labyrinthine house of a weird magician uncle in New England, where the two boys spend a memorable summer being trained in the art of illusion. Or is it real magic? Third setting: an alternate world where dark forces are at play--forces that first show up at the school, but intensify their power the summer. Shadowland is a superb, under-recognized, early novel from a master of literary terror. Get it while it's back in print!

Book Description U.S.A.: Coward Mc Cann, 1980. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 1st edition, 1st printing, signed by the author. SHADOWLAND was an early novel by Peter Straub, and one of his first attempts at pushing the traditional horror story as far as it could go. The iconic GHOST STORY was Straub┐s first such effort, and SHADOWLAND has much in common with that classic: multiple narrative strands, varying time periods, copious flashbacks and a judicious use of hallucinatory fantasy. As if all that weren┐t enough, Straub also mixes in a healthy dose of the B-movie outrageousness that suffused his subsequent novel FLOATING DRAGON. Of the three novels I feel SHADOWLAND is by far the most resonant and exciting. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # ABE-14355482720
