We have verified two variants of deliver me from Eva deluxe. 22.a.i with the cloth boards was verified with V so this is probably the first print run. The full leather binding was confirmed with XII. So we deduce the 22.a.i variant might consist of 5-10 copies with the remainder being 22.a.ii
Deliver Me from Eva held our editor spellbound, as it will everyone who reads it. But we’re not revealing any of its secrets. We dare you to read it! Eva, who possesses the amazing attributes of an amazing intellect and stunning musical capability, comes from an odd family. Her father is a classic mad scientist [he reminded us of that little duck doctor guy from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas] and he has some awfully strange experiments in store for Eva’s new fiance...
Although Paul Bailey’s only suspense novel, Deliver Me From Eva, is a recognized horror classic, he has also written many fine historical novels. Forrest J Ackerman, former editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, has been a profound influence on both the science fiction and horror genres, and has written a special introduction for this new edition.
