CP website synopsis

Published in 1967, and then extensively revised and published again in 1978, The Ninth Configuration is a fascinating look at madness, philosophy, and the nature of religious belief, the second part of William Peter Blatty’s ‘Trilogy of Faith,’ which also comprises The Exorcist and Legion. Both Twinkle, Twinkle ‘Killer’ Kane and The Ninth Configuration have been out of print for decades, but now they see new light in a handsome edition which combines both novels, with an introduction by Mark Kermode and a brief afterword by Blatty. Heavily illustrated, with two photographs of the author and a gallery of old paperback and hardcover editions.
      The hardcover edition is limited to just 200 copies and each one is signed by William Peter Blatty.  Printed front panel by artist Elixio Flores. This is the definitive edition of this novel.
