About this Item: Valancourt Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. J. B. Priestley (1894-1984) was a versatile and prolific novelist and playwright, but in The Other Place (1953) he shows an unexpected talent, proving himself a master of the weird tale. In "The Grey Ones," a man visits a psychiatrist after he becomes convinced that a group of demons masquerading as people are plotting the overthrow of the human race .?.? but what if he's not insane? In "Guest of Honour," a banquet speech becomes a horrifying affair when the keynote speaker realizes his audience is made up of monstrous and menacing creatures. "The Leadington Incident" recounts the disturbing experience of a Cabinet minister who suddenly perceives that though the people around him move and talk as though alive, they are all actually just animated corpses or sleepwalking zombies. The nine tales in this collection are strange, fantastic, and often unsettling, and they represent Priestley at his best.'Priestley is one of the finest and most popular storytellers of the last hundred years.' - Margaret Drabble'J.B. Priestley is one of our literary icons of the 20th century. And it is time that we all became re-acquainted with his genius.' - Judi Dench"[H]ighly readable and provocative." - Sunday Herald.

About this Item: William Heinemann, London, 1953. Hardback. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Reprint. THE OTHER PLACE And Other Stories of The Same Sort. J B Priestley. William Heinemann, London 1953 Reprint 266pp Hardback. This copy is in FINE condition, there is a neat signature of ownership to the front paste down which is hidden by the dustwrapper front flap. The dustwrapper is price clipped and has some minimal edge wear. The Other Place, subtitled "And Other Stories of the Same Sort", is a collection of science fiction and fantasy stories by J. B. Priestley The title story, original to the collection, was adapted as an episode of the television series Westinghouse Studio One in 1958, starring Cedric Hardwicke as "a sorcerer with chin whiskers" John Boynton Priestley (1894-1984) Author, novelist,playwright, essayist, broadcaster, scriptwriter, social commentator and man of letters, whose career straddled the 20th Century. J.B.Priestley was born John Priestley on September 13th 1894 in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the son of a schoolmaster. His mother died when he was very young, and he was brought up by his stepmother.After leaving Belle Vue School when he was 16, he worked in a wool office. But, already determined to become a writer, he spent his hard earned money on buying books, and used his spare time trying different kinds of writing, including a regular unpaid column in a local periodical, the Bradford Pioneer. Samples of his early writing are kept in the Archive at the Special Collections of the J.B.Priestley Library at the University of Bradford. His first piece of professional writing was an article "Secrets of the Rag-Time King" which appeared in London Opinion on Dec 14th 1912. Writer, broadcaster and critic J.B. Priestley may be best known for his "time plays", such as "An Inspector Calls", for enduringly popular novels like "The Good Companions" and "Angel Pavement" and for his wartime broadcasts, the "Postscripts". However, he also wrote essays, autobiography, social history and time theory. Priestley was active in politics, although never a member of any party, expressing his concerns (for instance about the nuclear arms race) through commentary and campaigning. Born and brought up in Bradford, Priestley used his Yorkshire background in some of his finest works, such as "Bright Day" and "When we are married". His connections with the city were later marked by the statue near Central Library and the naming of the J.B. Priestley Library at the University of Bradford, which he officially opened in 1975. The University awarded him the title of honorary Doctor of Letters in 1970, and he was awarded the freedom of the City of Bradford in 1973 and the Order of Merit in 1977. This is just one of a number of books by or about J B Priestley that I am selling on this site. Ref Y2 Size: 266pp. Seller Inventory # 007450
