The planet Hegira is the universe's melting pot. Hundreds of tribes in dozens of cities intermingle in the vast uncharted territory. The only thing holding the people together are the massive Obelisks, the chronicles of the all the truths and falsehoods each tribe has brought to Hegira. Young Bar-Woten is in search of knowledge and he knows the key to the truth about his homeland is contained in the writings of the Obelisks. With his fellow companions, Bar-Woten must travel through Hegira's exotic cities to discover the lies within the words of thousands.

Book Description Severn House, London, 1987. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Greg Bear's first novel, "Hegira", was published as a paperback original by Dell in 1979. In 1987 he revised the text for a VGSF (UK) paperback, and then that revised text was finally published in its first hardcover edition by Severn House (UK) in 1988. Offered for your library is this pristine copy of that first hardcover edition of "Hegira". It is flat signed (not inscribed) by Bear on the title page, and states "This first hardcover edition" on the copyright page. The book and its dust jacket (in a removable mylar cover) are both in fine, as new condition. And, at no additional cost, I will include a near fine copy of the original Dell paperback edition of "Hegira" ("First Printing--June 1979" & ISBN 0-440-13473-0 on its copyright page.) As with all Space Age Book purchases, I will ship these books in a moisture proof zip-loc bag, padded in bubble wrap, inside a sturdy box to assure they reach their proud new owner in the same condition as my description.
