Description:

Beautiful copy in perfect dust jacket. First edition, first printing. Unread book. One of the nicest copies I have seen. The dust jacket is unclipped ($12.95) 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 number line. In Clay's Ark, Ms. Butler has created a horrifyingly believable world in the not-too-distant future, a time when the bonds of civilization have all but disappeared, when violence and vigilante justice are the rule rather than the exception. In such a world, the kidnapping of a doctor and his two daughters traveling across the California desert is hardly exceptional.". Illustrated by Lee Wade. Fourth published (though first in chronological order) novel in the Patternist sf series, following: Patternmaster (1976), Mind of my Mind (1977), Survivor (1978) and Wild Seed (1980).

About this title:

Synopsis: A handful of people exposed to a disease of extraterrestrial origin combat their nearly irresistible impulse to infect others, as they struggle to make a life for themselves in self-imposed desert isolation

About the Author: OCTAVIA E. BUTLER, often referred to as the "grand dame of science fiction," was the author of several award-winning novels including Parable of the Talents, winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel. Recipient of a MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant and numerous literary awards, she has been acclaimed for her lean prose, strong protagonists, and social observations in stories that range from the distant past to the far future. She passed away on February 24, 2006.
