INCIDENT ON ATH [d18]
|ex-ChUSFA: stamp on first inside page, page 85. MORE INFO|
Tight and square with flat spine - possibly unread. Front cover shows a light overall haze of tiny dots, where the ink had stuck to another book and stayed with that book / back cover shows a faint haze of ink transfered from another book. Some corners show a faint 1/2" stain-trace where the color on the page-blocks has bleached or lightened, with little or no trace on the inside.
The Dumarest series lasted about 30 books, and I would recommend most of the early ones (particularly the Ace-Doubles) as good reading. If you're not familiar with the premise, Earl Dumarest was born on Earth, but wandered so far from it in a crowded galaxy that people in the region he is currently in think that Earth is but a legend, like "El Dorado." (The Traveller gaming system, with High and Low Passage, quicktime and basic, is loosely based on the very populated galaxy Dumarest travels in.) He picks up friends and enemies, and occaisionally a clue pointing towards Earth.
