Short, weird novel by Aldiss, illustrated in full colour throughout by artist Ian Pollock. Issued simultaneous in both (oversize) paperback and hardcover. In 2006 a (critically acclaimed) ''mocumentary'' film BROTHERS OF THE HEAD was made based on the book. This copy is from the author's own library, with a white printed label signed by Wendy Aldiss affixed to the first page, 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''. The paperback edition is easily available, but this hardcover is very uncommon.
