Hardcover.
Octavo, pp. [1-4] [i-viii] ix-xx 1-379 [380] [note: first leaf is a blank], original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold. Utopian sf novel set in the 1980's.

''UK-Armenian writer, born Dikran Kouyoumidjian, who is mainly remembered for The Green Hat (1924) and other novels of fashionable London life. His supernatural fiction is to be found in These Charming People (coll 1923) and May Fair (coll 1924); Ghost Stories (coll 1927) assembles the supernatural stories from the previous volumes. His sf novel, MAN'S MORTALITY (1933) - although derivative of Rudyard Kipling's pax aeronautica tale With the Night Mail (1905) - vividly depicts the collapse of International Aircraft and Airways in 1987 after fifty years of oligarchy; the melodramatic story carries some moral bite. Hell! Said the Duchess (1934) is set in 1938, with Winston Churchill as premier. A succubus is impersonating the duchess, who is accused of being a ''Jane the Ripper'' but is eventually exonerated'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

SF novel.

''Larry Zagorski spins wild tales of fantasy worlds for pulp magazines. But as the Second World War hangs in the balance, the lines between imagination and reality are starting to blur. In London, spymasters enlist occultists in the war of propaganda. In Southern California, a charismatic rocket scientist summons dark forces and an SF writer founds a new religion. In Munich, Nazis consult astrologists as they plot peace with the West and dominion over the East. And a conspiracy is born that will ripple through the decades to come. The truth, it seems, is stranger than anything Larry could invent. But when he looks back on the 20th century, the past is as uncertain as the future. Just where does truth end and illusion begin?''.
