Rick Geary Goes To LOVER’S LANE in Our June Solicitations!

Here’s what we’ve got being solicited this month in comics bookstores to come in June including the latest volume of Rick Geary’s Treasury of XXth Century Murder, this time focusing on Lovers’ Lane: The Hall-Mills Mystery and our signed, limited edition of P. Craig Russell’s The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde Vol.5: The Happy Prince.

 

Treasury of XXth Century Murder: Lovers’ Lane
The Hall-Mills Mystery
Rick Geary

New Brunswick, New Jersey, Thursday, September 14, 1922. Reverend Hall and Mrs. Eleanor Mills take a stroll in the town’s park in the evening. Shots are heard. 2 days later, their bodies are found laying on the ground very neatly next to each other with her hand on his thigh, love letters strewn around them, the scarf on her neck covering up the deep bloody slit in it. Reverend Hall, himself married, was in an open secret of an affair with Mrs. Mills, a married woman of his choir. The perfect ingredients for a juicy scandal and fascinating investigation which the nation’s press hungrily devours. Alas, no clues or evidence are sufficient to make an indictment stick. Was it suicide? A jealous rival? The case reopens again 4 years later as new information is brought to light, indicting the reverend’s wife but she is an upstanding member of her community, denying to the last that her husband had any affair…

The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde
Vol.5: The Happy Prince The Signed Limited Edition
P. Craig Russell

Here is the signed and numbered edition strictly limited to 200 copies. Quarterbound in real cloth and fine paper with a tip-in sheet signed by P. Craig Russell.

The Happy Prince is arguably the most famous and well loved of Oscar Wilde’s nine fairy tales, rivaled only by The Selfish Giant. It is also a very timely tale at a time of controversy over the increasing chasm between rich and poor…

The Happy Prince has lived a life of opulence but has died young and his soul inhabits a beautiful ruby encrusted statue covered all over in gold leaf. From his perch high above the city he is witness to all the poverty, misery, and hopelessness in which his people have been living. When a small barn swallow in flight to the warm south ahead of the approaching winter stops to rest upon the statue the Happy Prince prevails upon him to delay his travels in order to remove his gold leaf a piece at a time and shower it upon the poor citizens.

 

Out of love for the Happy Prince the swallow does his bidding.

As the days pass the Prince’s beauty is stripped away and as winter sets in the bird’s fate is sealed. In the spring the townspeople finding only a dull statue with a broken lead heart and a dead bird consign the worthless objects to the ash heap. Only an emissary of God recognizes them as the most valuable treasures of the city and brings them to the gardens of heaven.
