First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel. Winner of the 1994 Nebula Award for best novel.

''is connected to the world depicted in Queen of Angels, is a broader and more traditional tale. Its depiction of Mars may lack some of the resolute arguments that accompany every speculative suggestion in Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars sequence, but Bear's novel gains a commensurate freedom of sweep in its story -- which intermixes politics and an array of scientific discoveries -- of the emancipation of Mars from the hegemony of a paranoia-driven Earth. The title, it may be fair to add, is meant literally'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Timescape Books: NY. 1982.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel, winner of the Nebula Award for best novel in 1982. INSCRIBED, SIGNED & DATED BY THE AUTHOR/''For Paul, my only (so far) Nebula winner, MB, Michael Bishop, July 16th 1988''.

''Bshop's most public success soon followed. NO ENEMY BUT TIME (1982), which won a Nebula Award for best novel, intensified the movement of his imagination to a local habitat, and for the first time introduced a protagonist of sufficient racial (and mental) complexity to carry a storyline immured in the particular and haunted by the exotic. In this case, dogged by dreams of the Pleistocene, the new Bishop protagonist - who is not dissimilar to the Habiline who later featured in the less successful and overextended tale of Atlanta and Haiti, Ancient of Days (1985) - is enlisted into a Time-Travel project, returns to the Africa of his vision, fathers a child in the dawn of time, and returns with her to the battering world. The tale is both melancholy and epic'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Omnibus edition of three psychic detective novels, each published first as a paperback original. Issued by the Nelson Doubleday Book Club. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''this genial yet sinister cynicism is the besetting tone ofhis s rather different Garrett series: Sweet Silver Blues (1987), Bitter Gold Hearts (1988), Cold Copper Tears (1988) - these three assembled as THE GARRETT FILES - Old Tin Sorrows (1989), Dread Brass Shadows (1990), Red Iron Nights (1991), Deadly Quicksilver Lies (1994) and Petty Pewter Gods (1995). Private eye Garrett is an occult detective, aided by an undead nonhuman Mycroft Holmes figure. The books pay constant homage to Hammett, Chandler and Spillane; Garrett's neurotic sexism is best viewed as ironic homage to the author's sources'' (Roz Kaveney/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
