  • Uncommon First Edition [Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1956]; blue boards with gold titling on spine, pages toned with foxing invading the margins; in unclipped illustrated jacket, edges a little bumped, 7mm chip top rear; a very good copy
  • Bester’s second SF novel [first book was The Demolished Man] received publication in this UK Edition before it appeared in serialised form in Galaxy magazine [1957] & was eventually published in the US under the name The Stars My Destination [Signet, 1957]
  • Regarded by many as one of the great SF novels and a precursor to the cyberpunk movement [outspoken admirers include William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Michael Moorcock, Robert Silverberg, Carl Sagan, Joe Haldeman & Samuel R. Delaney!]
  • One for the hardcore SF collector
