25 Reviews

This dystopian look at the future, one of the most bleak in all of science fiction, is now in a new edition with full-page, full-color designs by Jacob McMurray. Disturbing and unconventional, this is an important work in science fiction, and it won the Hugo Award in 1969.

Each copy of the book is also signed by John Brunner. Brunner passed away in 1985, but in the early 1980s he had worked on a project with Charles Brown of Locus. This project never came to be, but Brunner had signed a few hundred sheets for it.
