Comments & Further Information

A first US edition paperback with a stated First Edition September 1977.  The title was originally published as a book club edition in June 1977.  In  good condition for its age. Age tanning to inside covers and to  pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.   Sympathetically repaired one-inch tear to leading edge of first page.  The covers are showing signs of wear and are generally grubby.  Reading crease to spine.  One-inch crease to top right-hand corner of front cover.  One-inch vertical tear at the bottom of the front cover which hasn’t quite torn all the way through.  The spine is faded.

Cover art by Boris Vallejo.  Introduction by Edmond Hamilton.
