More Information
MP Shiel, born 1865 and died 1947, was an important and influential British author and played a large part in the development of the science fiction and fantasy genre. He also dabbled in the detective genre with his series character Prince Zaleski. He is though, perhaps best known for The Purple Cloud which is regarded by students of the genre and collectors as something of a cornerstone title. His early work is, unsurprisingly, rare in 1st issue status, they are also very collectable, indeed every English edition listed in this bibliography is of collectable value. UK editions are generally worth more than American editions.
