ex-ChUSFA: stamp on first inside page, page 85. MORE INFO

Book is tight and square with the usual light bumping to spine ends; spine is showing very faint spotting/discoloration with age. A pair of ID-numbers written in pen on bottom corner of left-endpaper; "ChUSFA" stamps on first right-endpaper, title page, and page 85 - no other marks or writing. Dustjacket has no tears, but spine is showing some wear; light wear to top edge & spine-ends; light overall wear as loss-of-gloss/rubbing - faint scrape at upper right corner of front cover / 2 faint scratches on back cover (may not show in scans.) Line in marker next to spine on bottom page-block (remainder mark?)

The presence of the original Koontz story makes this collectible (hence the high price.)

Future City, edited by Roger Elwood. An original anthology - stories are new to the 1973 Trident Press hardcover. Once again, Elwood gets an impressive line-up of well-known authors.
