About this title


FIRST EDITION hardcover published by Doubleday in 1976. This is a rather scarce book in nice condition, not to be mistaken for the common book club edition issued the following year. This is Crowley's second novel, describing a world in which genetically engineered animals are given a variety of human characteristics. Painter is a leo, a combination of man and lion; Reynard, a character derived from medieval European fable, is part fox.

About the Author:

John Crowley was born in 1942 and has worked in documentary films and TV since 1966. The Deep, his first sf novel, was published in 1975 and was followed by Beasts, Engine Summer and Great Work of Time. In his later work, Little, Big, Aegypt and Love and Sleep, he has moved into writing fantasy to great critical acclaim.
