The author's third novel. A very uncommon UK hardcover.

''(1940-1992) UK author best known for her work outside the sf field, though all her novels and tales were characterized by an expressionist freedom of reference to everyday 'reality' which often emerges as fantasy. She won the John Llewelyn Rhys Memorial Prize for her second novel, The Magic Toyshop (1967), and the Somerset Maugham Award for SEVERAL PERCEPTIONS (1968). Though she was never associated with the sf New Wave, it was perhaps through the widening of the gates of perception due to that movement that readers of sf were induced to treat Carter's difficult but rewarding work as being of interest to a genre audience; as an author of feminist sf, she was notably lacking in doctrinaire presentations of story, and her influence has grown steadily - for some time after her death, she was the most taught woman writer in American universities. Her early and unnecessary death - she could not break her addiction to cigarettes, and died of lung cancer - continues to induce a sense that the British literary world had been diminished'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
