1 Benford, GregoryAgainst Infinity. 07368
Timescape Books: NY. 1983.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''is pure sf in terms of its plot, which involves the search for an enigmatic alien on Ganymede, but its structure is strongly reminiscent of William Faulkner's novella The Bear; and the novella ''To the Storming Gulf'' (1985) contains strong echoes of Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. Comments on these parallels by critic Gary K. Wolfe caused some controversy'' (Brian Stableford/Encyclopedia of SF).


Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new) but for small remainder mark on bottom page edges.

2 Benford, GregoryCosm. 05263
Avon: NY. 1998.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''Alicia Butterworth is a physicist from U.C. Irvine who's trying to re-create the conditions that existed just before the big bang using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider on Long Island. Something goes wrong during one of the collider runs, and part of the machine explodes, leaving behind a strange metallic sphere. Butterworth sneaks the object back to Irvine, where she and a colleague determine that what they have on their hands is a window into a miniature universe, or cosm. The cosm is evolving far faster than our own universe, giving Butterworth a ringside seat as the history of creation replays itself. Her theft turns out to be just the start of what, at times, is a boisterous adventure as she becomes ensnared in the intrigue of cloistered academic and scientific circles'' (Amazon.com).

''..continues the theme of a Universe-wide struggle between organic and inorganic ''lifeforms'' in which self-replicating machines appear to have the upper hand; this scenario is further developed in the Family Bishop sequence - comprising Great Sky River (1987),Tides of Light (1989) and Furious Gulf (1994) - and centring upon the forced flight of human Families towards a form of sanctuary in the heart of the galaxy, harassed all the while by the inorganic mech. Throughout the sequence, the author interestingly develops the concept of the Aspect, voluble though partial versions of human ancestors electronically stored within the minds of the living'' (Brian Stableford/Encyclopedia of SF).
