1 West, AnthonyAnother Kind. 24018
Eyre & Spottiswoode: London. 1951.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel, the author's second book.

''UK writer, in the USA for much of his life, son of H.G. Wells and Rebecca West. His H.G. Wells: Aspects of a Life (1984), published just after his mother's death, was widely understood as an act of retribution aimed mainly at her -- he was an illegitimate child and was raised eccentrically -- and only secondarily at Wells. His first novel, On a Dark Night (1949 UK; vt The Vintage 1950 US), is an afterlife fantasy describing a suicide's questings through space and time for the meaning of life. ANOTHER KIND (1951 UK) is a near future story with love in the foreground and a UK civil war filling the scene'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).


Page edges a little age-darkened, else a fine copy in an almost fine dustjacket.

Price: 15.00 GBP
