"The rare boys' adventure story that marked the first-ever gay young adult novel republished for the first time in over a century" Edward Prime-Stevenson (1858-1942) has been described by one critic as "the first modern gay American author," and his novel "Imre: A Memorandum" (1906) has been cited as the first openly gay American novel. But fifteen years earlier, Stevenson published another milestone work, "Left to Themselves" (1891), a young adult novel described by its author as "homosexual in essence," the first such book ever published. A thrilling, fast-paced boys' adventure tale in the tradition of R. M. Ballantyne and Horatio Alger, "Left to Themselves" follows young Gerald Saxton, en route from New York to meet his father in Nova Scotia, chaperoned by the older youth Philip Touchtone. Along the way, Gerald and Philip's romantic friendship will blossom as they contend with a number of extraordinary events and obstacles, including a shipwreck that leaves them island castaways, and a mysterious, predatory figure who dogs their steps and will stop at nothing to get his hands on Gerald. Out of print for over 120 years and long unobtainable, Stevenson's book returns to print at last in this highly anticipated new edition, which is introduced and annotated by Prof. Eric L. Tribunella. This edition also features an appendix of supplementary materials, including contemporary reviews of the novel and selections of other writings by Stevenson. "A wonderful addition to gay studies in general, and in particular to the continuing 'resurrection' of Edward Prime-Stevenson." - Prof. James Gifford"

With the "oldies" dead, teenagers inherit the world, suddenly free to smash, loot and love as they like. Motorcycle gangs hold wild orgies in abandoned apartments and prowl through the shambles of disintegrating London in search of disappearing stocks of lipstick, gasoline and food, now the currency in a new world of unspeakable violence .

"The Forest of Valancourt is the story of young Lucien, who sets out to find his origins and prove himself worthy of the love of the young countess Adelaide. But he gets more than he bargained for when he saves the life of a man who proves to be his father, and who denounces Lucien to the Inquisition! Imprisoned in a dungeon and threatened with horrible torture, can Lucien escape his terrible fate and discover the truth behind his father's past? The Forest of Valancourt is the first title in a new set of limited edition hardcover reprints of the rarest of Gothic novels. While our Gothic Classics series reprints rare titles in paperback editions, these limited edition hardcovers are the rarest of the rare, books of which only one or two copies exist in the world. Only one copy of The Forest of Valancourt has survived; that copy is held in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, England. The Valancourt Books edition is newly typeset from that copy in an attractive cloth-bound edition with dust jacket, giving modern readers the opportunity to own a copy of this extremely rare work."--Publisher's website.

"Grips the reader . . . The story has pace and excitement, unforced sentiment and wholly unaffected gaiety." - "Times Literary Supplement" "He knows how to build a story mounting page by page in suspense . . . a thriller if ever there was one, and a classic thriller at that." - "New York Times" "Admirably written . . . full of drama and good humour." - "Evening Standard" As wartime assignments go, Jerry Chambers doesn't have it too bad. By day he flies routine patrols over the English Channel, leaving his nights free for drinking and dancing with his girlfriend, the lovely barmaid Mona. Everything seems to be going right - until Jerry accidentally sinks a British submarine! Seeking to redeem himself, he accepts a transfer to a dangerous mission, risking his life to test an experimental and deadly new weapon that could help defeat Hitler. Meanwhile, back home, Mona thinks she has discovered proof of Jerry's innocence and sets out to clear his name - but will anyone believe her, and will she be too late? Based in part on real-life events that occurred during the Second World War, Nevil Shute's seventh novel, "Landfall" (1940), is a thrilling page-turner that draws on Shute's own experiences as a pilot and engineer. This edition features a new introduction by Rob Spence. About the Author: Nevil Shute (1899-1960) was one of the most popular and beloved British novelists of the 20th century. A prolific author, his works include the classics "A Town Like Alice" (1950) and "On the Beach" (1957), both of which were adapted as successful films.
