THE ICE KING. Daniel Casolaro. THE ICE KING.
Ardmore: Whitmore Publishing, (1981). First edition of his only book, a novel about mountain climbing. Full-page, intimate INSCRIPTION: "To a beautiful girl - - -." The author was an American freelance writer who came to public attention in 1991 when he was found dead, his wrists slashed 10-12 times, in a bathtub in a room in the Sheraton Hotel in Martinsburg, West Virginia. A note was found, and the medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. However, his death became controversial because his working notes suggested he had traveled to Martinsburg to meet a source in connection with a story he had dubbed "the Octopus," which centered around a sprawling conspiracy theory involving an international cabal. Fine in dust jacket with few small chips on corners. Unaccountably scarce--and we would guess rare signed.
