VG+ to near-Fine
Ballantine Books 1st printing August 1982 paperback. Cover by Rick Sternbach, 228 pages, $2.50 cover price. Condition is VG to near-Fine: tight and square with flat spine; age tanning is mild and uniform; a little wear to cover/spine edge, and back cover shows light wear as some faint scuffs and marks (may not show in scan.) No stamps, marks or writing - a clean copy that is probably unread.
Futures Past, by James White - a collection of short stories (1982.) The 1988 British version (from Orbit) is a variant (which substitutes "Custom Fitting" for "Spacebird.") Not to be confused with a Van Vogt collection with the same title from Tachyon Press.
Half of these originally appeared in New Worlds; others from Nebula, Magazine of F&SF, Science Fantasy, and NEW WRITINGS IN SF. #21. Most of these are from the Fifties, (only 2 from the Sixties or Seventies) and from British magazines - so American readers will find them uncommon.
