THE UNEXPECTED DIMENSION
Ballantine (388K) [1st printing] 1960. Cover by Blanchard, 159 pages, 35 cent cover price. Condition is near-Fine. Tight with slight lean, spine is flat. Age-tanning is mild and uniform. No stamps, marks or writing - a very clean copy. If not for the spinal tilt, I'd grade as "Fine" - this looks too tight to have been read.
The Unexpected Dimension, by Algis Budrys. His first collection of stories.
The End of Summer
Stories are from 1954-1959, originally appearing in Astounding, Magazine of F&SF,Infinity, and Venture. About half of these were cover or lead stories - these are a good showcase of why Budrys was one of the leading story writers of the Fifties (and beyond.)
