Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Originally published in 1937, this is a re-issue in the Midnight Classics Series from Serpent’s Tail.  Age tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  The covers are showing signs of wear and are creased (both front and rear cover).

SYNOPSIS:  “In the city of Coltron, Mike Dolan wages a lone war against corruption.  Surrounded by lies, he wants to print the truth in his paper.  Mike’s friends try to stop him with words, but his enemies – the society abortionists, the discredited baseball player, and the neo-fascist Crusaders – try lead pipes and bullets.  But Mike’s not after a Pulitzer Prize; he’s after a clean city and a clearer conscience – no matter what the cost.”
