1 Bradfield, ScottAnimal Planet (signed by the author). 00456
Picador: NY. 1995.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Animal fantasy: ''when Animal Rights activists blow open the front gates of London Zoo, the animals escape, able to control their lives for the first time. Revolutionary Charlie the Crow and his reluctant colleague Buster the Penguin go underground, pursued by all and sundry, wanting a piece of Charlie's radical action''. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''US author and academic, a professor at the University of Connecticut since 1989, also resident in the UK. His first sf story, the orthodox ''What Makes a Cage? Jamie Knows'' (in Protostars, anth 1971, ed David Gerrold), significantly fails to prefigure his mature works, the best of which appear in The Secret Life of Houses (1988; exp vt Dream of the Wolf 1990; further exp vt Greetings From Earth: New and Collected Stories 1993), where they apply the torque of Fabulation to Southern Californian venues whose haunted, dehydrated inmates are trapped just short of the healing waters of the Pacific Rim. His first novel, The History Of Luminous Motion(1989), trawls in the same suburban deserts, though without the use of sf protocols, as does What's Wrong with America (1994), comically. In his later work he has concentrated on Beast Fable tales, including the remarkable ANIMAL PLANET (1995) and the stories assembled in Hot Animal Love: Tales of Modern Romance (2005); some of these tales are equipoisal with sf readings, but without ever becoming ''arguable'' narratives of mutated American life and mores'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
