506 pages. Greatly expanded and updated (mostly by Wingrove, I believe) from the earlier volume Billion Year Spree (1973, by Aldiss alone). Winner of a Hugo for best non-fiction. Contains a five-page introduction written by Aldiss exclusively for this slipcased edition. LIMITED EDITION: from a total printing of 126 copies (of which 100 were numbered), this is one of 26 lettered ''Presentation copies'' reserved for distribution by the authors. A couple of notes: the 100-copy numbered slipcased edition was signed by both authors, but not issued with a dustjacket. This 26-copy lettered edition WAS issued with a dustjacket, but NOT signed by the authors. This copy is letter ''C''. This copy is from the author's own library, with a white printed label signed by Wendy Aldiss affixed at the rear of the book, stating/''This book was a personal copy of the author Brian W. Aldiss, part of his effects at his home at the time of his death in August 2017. Wendy Aldiss, Literary Executor Brian Aldiss Estate''.
