The black leather jacket by Mick Farren( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Marlon Brando slouched across the screen wearing a black leather jacket in The Wild One, the mixture of animal magnetism and sexual aberration which the leather jacket manages to convey has ensured it a best-selling place in the catalogue of cool. Using more than a hundred evocative photographs The Black Leather Jacket traces the popularity of this emblem of macho meanness through the Hell's Angels of the forties; the original punks and beats of the fifties (James Dean, Brando, Elvis); the counter-culture of the sixties (the Weatherman, Electric Dylan); the sexual excesses of the seventies (S & M, Al Pacino, Christopher Street gays); the punk explosion, begun by the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and the Clash; the heavy metal and rock groups of the eighties; to the present day where the black leather jacket is a potent part of 21st century consciousness and is constantly adopted by high fashion and street style
Kindling by Mick Farren( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last bastions of freedom, the Kingdom of Albany and the Norse Alliance, stand at bay. They are threatened by the Empire of the Mosul, whose unstoppable forces, driven by the brutal theocracy of the Zhaithan and drawn by the promise of paradise, have already conquered most of Europe and now set their sights on the New World. There is one slim chance of salvation. Four youngsters must find each other, and themselves, to form an entity that can challenge the Dark Things, warrior demons raised by the necromancy of the Zhaithan. But the Four are widely scattered. Argo Weaver, fleeing his East Virginia home to escape a brutal stepfather, is concerned only with his own survival. Lady Cordelia Blakeney, aristocratic and decorative adjunct to the Army of Albany, cares more for the fit of her uniform than the state of the world. Jesamine is the slave-concubine of a brutal Teuton colonel. Raphael Vega, Hispanian conscript in the army of the Mosul, must hide his artistic talents from the heresy-seeking priests. And even with the help of the mysterious Yancey Slide, who may not be entirely human, the obstacles they face may well be insurmountable.
