THE DARK WORLD
Ace (1st printing) 1965 paperback (F-327.) Cover (and frontispiece?) by Gray Morrow, 126 pages. Condition is near-Fine: very tight and almost square with flat spine, age tanning is mild and uniform (insides of covers slightly darker.) A binding-fault causes the page block to bulge slightly at right - the pages are tightly held, with no looseness. No stamps, marks or writing - a very clean copy.
Henry Kuttner's: The Dark World - the magazine version appeared in Startling Stories Summer 1946. It's been decades since I read this story - for an idea of what the book is about, I'll have to quote from the back cover of the 1965 Ace paperback:
It started when Edward Bond was visited in the night by a giant wolf and a shadowy hooded figure, and felt the compelling call of the Need-fire. Or, perhaps the real start had been eons before... Bond was thrust into a strange other-world which had branched off from his own Earth thousands of years ago - a world where an ages-long battle of science and sorcery still raged, and where Bond himself was in some mysterious way the focus of powers and forces beyond his imagining.
