Arbor House: NY. 1987.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The author's first book.

''is told in a more immediately accessible style than some of his short stories, though at moments the narrative form of the text -- related by a doctor in the form of a confessional memoir -- and some of the ornate chill of the narrator's mind are reminiscent of the darker tales of Gene Wolfe. The tale begins in a familiar, congested near-future California, moves to a colony planet mined by ''mountainous'', biologically engineered, short-lived slaves -- whom the doctor helps liberate while at the same time analysing the plague which has killed his lover -- and finally returns to Earth, where the doctor, having discovered that the plague has the effect of transforming humans into gestalt configurations, disseminates it in secret in order to bring down a repressive government'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).


Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new).

Price: 10.00 GBP
