Comments & Further Information

FIRST UK EDITION paperback published by Fontana in 1978. A shorter version of this book was published in the USA by Doubleday in 1976. The book is in VERY GOOD condition for its age. Tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  The covers are showing signs of wear to the extremities and there are reading creases to spine which is slightly discoloured.

SYNOPSIS:  “In Caean, clothes weren’t just for wearing – they were a whole philosophy of life. In the Ziode Cluster, though, things were different – Caeanic clothes were forbidden, their powers unrecognised, their scope unfulfilled. But when Peder Forbarth looted a wrecked Caeanic freighter and found the ultimate garment – the legendary Frachonard suit – he’d discovered something of unimaginable potential. For the clothes didn’t just make the man – they WERE the man! And Peder’s new suit took him over, changed his character and set him off on a wild and spectacular odyssey across the galaxy. But what had it done to the man inside?”
