Hello, Bill! This book doesn't exist (it's only mentioned in CITY AT THE END OF TIME) but one of the books that inspired the reference is THE LOST ARK by Dr. Karl Shuker, published by Harper Collins UK in 1993. Very enjoyable.

Haha! I Figured the Bandle Book was "fictive" when my Wife didn't recognize the author or the title. She's a HUGE Cryptid "Fan"

Fictive here, as in made up here...but in the various Seattles in CITY it's all too real, and in numerous alternate printings.

Not sure if it counts as a special fictive book within a book like "The King in Yellow" or "The Necronomicon" or any of Kilgore Trouts' titles...and it's something I haven't really considered in my various essays about CITY...which is ODD on my part with BOOKS playing such an important role all up and down the muddy turbulent time stream.
