4 Brunner, JohnStand On Zanzibar (Hugo Award winner) 10503
Macdonald: London. 1969.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Classic sf novel, winner of the 1968 Hugo award for best novel.

''Brunner's magnum opus of the 1960s, STAND ON ZANZIBAR(1968), perhaps the longest genre-SF novel to that date, came as the climax of the decade. The dystopian vision of this complex novel, much of which is set in an exemplary New York, rests on the assumption that Earth's population will continue to expand uncontrollably. The intersecting stories of two New Yorkers - Norman House, a black executive on a mission to the Third World to facilitate further economic penetration, and Donald Hogan, a White ''synthesist'' and government agent, whose mission involves gaining control of a Eugenics discovery - provide dominant strands in an assemblage of narrative techniques whose function of providing a social and cultural context points up their resemblance to similar Modernist techniques used by John Dos Passos in USA (1930-1936), but which (as John P Brennan has noted) fail to conceal the underlying storytelling orthodoxy of the tale. It is perhaps for this reason that the resulting vision has a cumulative, sometimes overpowering effect, while at the same time the meliorist logic of its pulp plotting (which descends from Homer) urgently conveys a sense that answers will be forthcoming, and that the protagonists will win through the story they are living. Through its density of reference, and through Brunner's admirable (though sometimes insecure) grasp of US idiom, the book's anti-Americanism has a satisfyingly American ring to it, so that its tirades do not seem smug; it won the 1968 Hugo and the 1970 BSFA Award, and its French translation won the Prix Apollo (> Awards) in 1973'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
