New York: Tor, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed inscription on the half title page by Wilson. Set before and during WW II the novel concerns a mystical sect of Japanese warriors, the secret for the long lost "Black Wind" force, and an American and Japanese who were friends at one time and get involved with the same woman. "Of great and captivating sweep, with memorable characters and some fine action writing. The forced plotting rattles, however, with those abounding coincidences and an occult element that's preposterous and wholly unnecessary; this would have been stronger as straight saga. Even so, Wilson's best since The Keep, and worthy entertainment." - Kirkus Review, 1 September, 1988.
[New York]: Baen Books, . Small octavo, First edition. Baen Books 69828-1. Paperback original. Part of the author's LaNague Federations series. Future thriller set in a dark New York. "A quiet little SF tribute to Raymond Chandler whose work has given me such pleasure over the years. As part of my usual process, I took all the tropes of noir P-I fiction and gave them my own twist. I’ve got a down-and-out private investigator with an addiction, I’ve got the tired, seamy city, I’ve got the seedy club owner who’s the go-to guy for anything illegal, I’ve got a full crew of various underworld sociopaths. Only one person in the whole cast has any decency, and that’s a clone of Jean Harlow who’s a Dydeetown whore with (you guessed it) a heart of gold. She’s the “Dydeetown Girl” of the novella’s title."- F. Paul Wilson (from the author's online blog). Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009.
