Item #6936 THE GAME-PLAYERS OF TITAN. Philip K. Dick.


London: White Lion Publishers, 1974. First U.K. Edition. First hardcover edition of this early novel (originally issued as an Ace paperback original in 1963), set in a depopulated, post-apocalyptic future world.

Pete Garden, with the assistance of some Psis, determines that the Titanian vugs are horning in on the game, and that an even more radical faction of the vugs wants to sterilize Terra entirely" (Levack 18h).
