1 Bayley, BarringtonCollision With Chronos. 07894
Allison & Busby: London. 1977.
First edition (& first hardcover edition).
Hardcover.
First published as a Daw paperback in 1973 under the title COLLISION COURSE: this first hardcover edition is retitled and contains the author's preferred text.

''the ruins were getting younger. They were thought to be the ruins of an invading force of space monsters that men had defeated during the Dark Ages centuries before. But the ruins were visibly getting newer - rebuilding themselves. The militarists who had reconstructed society after the supposed invasion were getting panicky. Until they found a complete invader vehicle - and learned it travelled through time. But what was Time? What was Now? Could there be more than one Time Front - one going forward, one in reverse? And what would happen when two such fronts met in the inevitable collision course?''


Occasional spotting along top page edges, else a fine copy in a near fine dustjacket with edge wear.

2 Bayley, BarringtonThe Knights Of The Limits. 10150
Allison & Busby: London. 1978.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF short story collection. Uncommon UK hardcover.

''but perhaps the most significant work the author produced in the 1970's was in short fiction, most of it collected in THE KNIGHTS OF THE LIMITS, a remarkable (though astonishingly bleak) assembly of experiments in the carrying of story ideas to the end of their tether. He continues to be seriously underestimated, perhaps because of his almost total restriction to pulp formats'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).


Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new) with review slip laid in.

Price: 30.00 GBP
