BLOODED ON ARACHNE
Book= VG+ to near-Fine
The only flaw to the book is a mild spinal tilt; dustjacket is perfect, and protected by a relatively unworn DJ protector.
11 interior illustrations by GlennRay Tutor - a full page black & white for each story (not the poems.) Unlike most (but not all) Arkham House books, this one does not include a statement of the size of the print run. They are usually 3000 copies.
Michael Bishop's first collection: Blooded on Arachne. Michael Bishop is an author who can impress the hell out of you. He has won a couple of Nebulas (including one for the novel No Enemy But Time) and can have an ironic, anthropological bent. He is fearless- he'll write about anything (the titles should give some idea...) I have read enough of these in original sources to say they are the same quality as those in his second collection (also from Arkham / which I have read) - that one impressed me with his range and ability.
(Preface by Michael Bishop)
These stories originally appeared between 1970 and 1978 - in Magazine of F&SF (5), Cosmos, Galaxy, Epoch, New Constellations, Science Fiction Emphasis 1, New Dimensions 5, Black Holes, and Anthology of Speculative Poetry 3.
