The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "It's very easy to get a little disheartened when your planet has been blown up, the woman you love has vanished in a misunderstanding about the nature of space-time, the spaceship you are on crashes in flames on a remote and Bob-fearing planet and all you have to fall back on are a few simple sandwich-making skills. However, instead of being disheartened, Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life a bit and, immediately, all hell breaks loose." "After leaving university Adams moved back to London, determined to break into TV and radio as a writer. An edited version of the Footlights Revue appeared on BBC2 television in 1974. A version of the Revue performed live in London's West End led to Adams being discovered by Monty Python's Graham Chapman. The two formed a brief writing partnership, earning Adams a writing credit in episode 45 of Monty Python for a sketch called "Patient Abuse". He is one of only two people outside the original Python members to get a writing credit (the other being Neil Innes). The sketch plays on the idea of mind-boggling paper work in an emergency, a joke later incorporated into the Vogons' obsession with paperwork. Adams and Chapman also co-wrote the "Marilyn Monroe" sketch which appeared on the soundtrack album of Monty Python and the Holy Grail." ; Vol. 5. Fine in Fine dust jacket .

Seasons in Flight
New York: Atheneum, 1986. 1st American Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. ISBN: 0689115385. This book is in Fine condition and has a Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "On an island near Sumatra, south of the equator, the inhabitants await the arrival of a special flight - perhaps the very last flight to leave the northern hemisphere. It carries high-ranking American officials, needing sanctuary from the nuclear holocaust for which they are partly responsible. But the destruction of Science by itself has unleashed primal terrors. The ancient owner of the island makes his long-anticipated comeback." "After the war, he (Aldiss) worked as a bookseller in Oxford. He wrote a number of short pieces for a booksellers' trade journal about life in a fictitious bookshop, which attracted the attention of Charles Monteith, an editor at the British publisher Faber and Faber. As a result, Aldiss's first book was The Brightfount Diaries (Faber, 1955) , a 200-page novel in diary form about the life of a sales assistant in a bookshop. About this time he also began to write science fiction for various magazines. According to ISFDB his first speculative fiction in print was the short story Criminal Record, published by John Carnell in the July 1954 number of Science Fantasy. Several of his stories appeared in 1955 including three in monthly issues of New Worlds, a more important magazine also edited by Carnell. IN 1954, The Observer newspaper ran a competition for a short story set in the year 2500, Aldiss's story Not For An Age was ranked third following a reader vote. The Brightfount Diaries had been a minor success, and Faber asked Aldiss if he had any more writing that they could look at with a view to publishing. Aldiss confessed to being a science fiction author, to the delight of the publishers, who had a number of science fiction fans in high places, and so his first science fiction book was published, [citation needed] a collection of short stories entitled Space, Time and Nathaniel (Faber, 1957). By this time, his earnings from writing matched his wages in the bookshop, so he made the decision to become a full-time writer.". Fine in Fine dust jacket .

ANDERSON, POUL (POUL WILLIAM ANDERSON)
The Broken Sword
New York: Abelard-Schuman, 1954. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Signed edition. This book is in Very Good+ condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket.

"Anderson is probably best known for adventure stories in which larger-than-life characters succeed gleefully or fail heroically. His characters were nonetheless thoughtful, often introspective, and well developed. His plot lines frequently involved the application of social and political issues in a speculative manner appropriate to the science fiction genre. He also wrote some quieter works, generally of shorter length, which appeared more often during the latter part of his career. Much of his science fiction is thoroughly grounded in science (with the addition of unscientific but standard speculations such as faster-than-light travel). A specialty was imagining scientifically plausible non-Earthlike planets." (from Wikipedia) ; Signed by Author. Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket .
