Heuvelt, Thomas Olde (Translated by Nancy Forest-Flier) . HEX. London, England: Hodder & Stoughton, 2016. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 384 pages. As New/As New.

The author's first novel to be translated into English. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United Kingdom. Published simultaneously with the American Edition and distributed globally in a regular first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Thomas Olde Heuvelt's "Hex" in a felicitous English translation. Part-Roald Dahl, part-Stephen King, all-consuming. Announces the definitive arrival of an "exciting new voice in mainstream horror and dark fantasy". "Sets ancient magic against contemporary technology, to create a kind of dark fairy tale that seems ultimately believable in today's world. Terrific" (Jeffrey Ford). "Reminiscent of vintage Stephen King, and I can think of no higher praise. Chilling, moving, and profound" (John Connolly blurb on back of DJ). "Totally, brilliantly original" (Stephen King). The basis of a planned television series adaptation in English. An absolute "must-have" title for Thomas Olde Heuvelt collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (on the day of publication), and inscribed ("lined") in blue pen on the title page by the author: " 'Stefan de Graaf kwam om de hoek van de...', Thomas Olde Heuvelt, April 26th, 2016". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Heuvelt signed his name twice, in his magnificent, one-of-a-kind cursive signature and in legible block letters right beside it. The inscription is the first line of the novel in the Dutch original (the English translation is: "Steve Grant rounded the corner"). This title will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such double-signed, publication-day dated, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (British) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful signed copy we have ever seen. Please note: The British and American Editions were issued simultaneously. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant novelists in the thriller/horror/fantasy genre. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0765378809. $150.00
