Comments & Further Information

A first US paperback edition.  The first time this book was published in paperback.   The pages are heavily tanned but the book remains eminently readable. The covers are showing signs of wear to the extremities.  Rubbed at edges and small piece of laminate missing at top of book spine.   The rear cover and the spine are discoloured/grubby and are no longer bright white.  The front cover is a darker green than it appears in the photo.   The top right-hand corner of the first page has been neatly removed but no text has been affected.

SYNOPSIS:  “Three short novels by Terry Carr, Richard A Lupoff and Robert Silverberg.

This book is a venture in differentness. Three well-known science fiction writers were asked to produce stories in which the here-and-now world of mankind is relatively unimportant to the central theme and transformation is the rule.

In Terry Carr’s *The Winds of Starmont, man’s spirit of adventure rises to the challenge of an unconquered mountain peak on a planet of winged aliens.

*The Partridge Project by Richard A. Lupoff presents a world seen through the perceptions of a vast thinking machine.

Robert Silverberg’s short novel *This is the Road projects the reader forward into a time when humanity has undergone radical mutation and yet retains its propensity for hatred and self-destruction.

These three stories attest to the capacity of the creative mind to push aside the barriers of time and space, and to break into a world beyond – the world of imagination.”
