Kerosina: Worcester Park. 1987

SF/Fantasy novel. Limited to 1026 copies of which this is one of 750 trade copies. Winner of the 1988 BSFA award for best novel. BRIEFLY INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON THE TITLE PAGE.

''the theme of the primitive heroine comes sharply into focus in GRAINNE (1987), which draws upon the Celtic legend of the Goddess and explores her power in the modern age through the form of a mysterious young girl. These novels form the author's main corpus of fantastic fiction. They have affinities with the work of Robert Holdstock and Richard Cowper in the exploration of mythic figures, and find a natural conclusion in The Road to Paradise (1988), a contemporary timeslip novel where the weight of Britain's past begins to haunt the heroine'' (Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

Roderick At Random, or Further Education of a Young Machine., Sladek,  John
14 Sladek, JohnRoderick At Random, or Further Education of a Young Machine. 04497
Kerosina: Worcester Park. 1990.
First hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel, sequel to RODERICK (1980). First published as a paperback original in 1983.

''Roderick, or The Education of a Young Machine (1980) and Roderick at Random, or Further Education of a Young Machine (1983), two texts conceived as a single novel. The novels represent the author's most ambitious work to date, conveying with considerable ingenuity and some pathos its protagonist's Candide-like innocence and its author's oulipo-derived numerological sense of narrative structure. As the most formally inventive, the funniest, and very nearly the most melancholy of modern US sf writers, Sladekhas always addressed the heart of the genre, but never spoken from it. We need his attention: he deserves ours'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF)
