Farmer, Philip Jose
Tight and square with flat spine - probably unread. Unlike most Equinox books I've seen, this has no age tanning - pages are remarkably white. Slight overall wear as faint rubbing - more on back cover.
This Equinox edition states "Second Printing" on credits page, which makes it from 1975.
Strange Relations, Farmer's first collection (1960) - these are the stories (novelet-length) that made his reputation in the early Fifties - all with the general theme of an Earthman in a relationship with a person or alien on another world. 2 of these have not appeared in any other Farmer collection.
Original appearances from 1953 to 1960 - in Thrilling Wonder Stories (2), Magazine of F&SF (2), Argosy. "My Sister's Brother" technically first appeared (as "The Strange Birth") in the fabulously rare last issue of Satellite (1959 - 4 copies exist, and it was never offered for public sale.) It appeared under yet another title in 1960 in Magazine of F&SF.
