''is set in an alternate world where Mmagic works through the discovery and application of pragmatic laws. The cast (one of whom enters the debate in the Phoenix Tavern) is again populous and colourfully conceived, and includes afreets, various familiars and demons (one of whom is an alternate version of Adolf Hitler); the male protagonist is a werewolf and his female counterpart a virgin witch. Again the war is between Law and Chaos; here, as in A Midsummer Tempest, the ending is not grim'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

4 Anderson, PoulTau Zero. 33491
Victor Gollancz: London. 1971.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel. Very uncommon British hardcover.

''Tau Zero (June - August 1967 Galaxy as ''To Outlive Eternity''; expanded 1970) is less successful as fiction, though its speculations on Cosmology are fascinating, and the hypothesis it embodies is strikingly well conceived. A spaceship from Earth, intended to fly near the speed of light so that humans can reach the stars without dying of old age (as a consequence of the time-dilation of Special Relativity described by the Lorentz-Fitzgerald equations), uncontrolledly continues to accelerate at a constant one gravity after reaching its intended terminal velocity, so that the disparity between ship-time and external time becomes ever greater: aeons hurtle by outside, until eventually the universe contracts to form a monobloc. After a new Big Bang the ship begins to slow gradually and the crew plans to settle a new planet in the universe that has succeeded our own. The felt scope of the narrative is convincingly sustained throughout, though the characters tend to the soap-operatic'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
