Barefoot In The Head., Aldiss,  Brian W.
2 Aldiss, Brian W.Barefoot In The Head. 20475
Ace Books: NY. 1972.
First paperback edition.
Paperback original.
SF (''fix-up'') novel, expanded from his ''Acid-Head War'' short stories first published in New Worlds.

''during the latter half of the 1960s Aldiss was closely identified with New Wave sf, and in particular with the innovative magazine New Worlds under the fruitfully controversial editorship of Michael Moorcock; Aldiss was instrumental in obtaining a 1967 Arts Council grant for the magazine, which saved it for a few years. Though never fully at ease with New Worlds's submission to an aesthetic dominated by J G Ballard, Aldiss published some increasingly unconventional fiction here, notably his novel Report on Probability A (short version March 1967 New Worlds; 1968; written 1962 but unpublishable until the times changed), an sf transposition of the techniques of the French ''anti-novelists'' into a surrealist story of enigmatic voyeurism, and his Acid-Head War stories, collected as BAREFOOT IN THE HEAD: A EUROPEAN FANTASIA (fixup 1969). Set in the aftermath of a European war in which psychedelic drugs have been used as weapons, the latter is written in a dense, punning style reminiscent of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake (1939); it is an ambitious tour de force of modernism in SF'' (John Clute & David Pringle/The Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Chthon., Anthony,  Piers
21 Anthony, PiersChthon. 41378
Panther: London. 1972.
First British edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
SF novel. The author's first book, a 1967 Nebula and 1968 Hugo nominee.

''he has written large amounts of both sf and fantasy; though there is no clear demarcation, it is certainly the case that he has more and more concentrated his energies on the latter form. His two most ambitious sf novels came early in his career. CHTHON (1967), his first, is a complexly structured adventure of self-discovery partially set in a vast Underground Prison, and making ambitious though sometimes over-baroque use of Pastoral and other parallels; its sequel, Phthor (1975), is less far-reaching, less irritating, but also less involving'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Avon Fantasy Reader no 1 (first issue)., AVON FANTASY READER,  (ed. Donald A. Wollheim)
50 AVON FANTASY READER, (ed. Donald A. Wollheim)Avon Fantasy Reader no 1 (first issue). 39590
Avon Book Company: NY. 1947 (February)
First edition (& 1st printing).
Stapled pictorial wrappers.
First issue. Octavo, single issue, pictorial wrappers. 18 issues published in total, quarterly, 1947 - 1952, edited by Donald A. Wollheim., In Tymn and Ashley (eds), Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazines, pp. 127-132.

''US digest anthology, 18 volumes, quarterly, 1947 - 1952, published by Avon Publishing, New York; ed Donald A. Wollheim. AVON FANTASY READER was the first regular paperback reprint fantasy anthology series, though its digest format has often caused it to be classified as a magazine Wollheim selected primarily from WEIRD TALES, emphasizing the works of H.P. LOVECRAFT and CLARK ASHTON SMITH, and working in tandem with August W. Derleth at ARKHAM HOUSE to promote the best of Weird Tales's authors. Wollheim also reprinted stories from STRANGE TALES, Adventure and Blue Book, selecting fiction otherwise hard to find, but did not confine himself to the pulps, presenting a wide range of fiction from books, especially by UK authors like Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany and William Hope Hodgson. Although AVON FANTASY READER published some sf, most of its content was supernatural fiction, plus some slick fantasy and heroic fantasy. The quality was high throughout'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).


Page edges age-darkened, some wrinkling and separation of cover lamination, a bright, VG+ copy.
