About this Item

Octavo. 262p. When the publisher's blurb boldly stated that this work "far surpassed the best of science fiction", it would seem a rather ambitious note. However, Lovecraft already considered him a "master in the genre". He stated that Weinbaum's writing was ingenious, and he stood miles above the other Pulp Fiction writers in his creation of genuinely alien world. Frederik Pohl wrote that before Weinbaum sciene fiction aliens were in some form men whether catman, antmen, lizard-men, or rockmen but they were always men, Weinbaum changed that he transformed the imagery into creatures that transcended the older conceptions. Bound in blue cloth lettered in dark blue, minute bump to one corner. A lovely copy, fresh in nearly fine dust jacket with slight rubbing along adges and spine ends. A superb copy with no names or bookplates. (see also Brian Stableford, Outside the Human Aquarium: Masters of Science Fiction, p. 129ff.). Bookseller Inventory # 018840
