First U.S. (and first hardcover) edition. The author's first book, "an ignored minor masterpiece of antirealistic fiction, a novel that deserves the attention of all students of fantasy literature." - Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature I, pp. 463. Coates' novel "quite brilliantly applies a wide arsenal of literary devices, some of them surrealistic, to the exaggeratedly spoof-like tale of a master criminal and his absurd super-weapon, which sees through solids and applies remote-control heat to kill people invisibly; beneath the spoofing and the cosmopolitan style lies a sense of horror." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 239. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-16; (1987) 2-18; (1995) 2-20; and (2004) II-267. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 438. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 54. Bleiler (1978), p. 45. Reginald 03107. A fine copy in fine pictorial dust jacket with hint of wear at spine ends, light dust soiling, mainly to rear panel, and a bit of sunning to spine panel (light blue ink a trifle faded). The rare wraparound advertising band with Ford Madox Ford quote is present. Overall, a stunning copy of a book rarely encountered in nice condition. (#149447). N° de réf. du libraire 149447
