First Printing. Octavo (21.5cm); pale gray cloth, with titles stamped in black on spine; dustjacket; [10], 278pp. A fresh, Fine copy, giving every appearance of being unread. Dustjacket is unclipped, with $4.95 sticker placed directly over publisher's price of $4.59 on front flap; a handful of pinpoint rubs, else a Fine, unworn example, with the spine colors still bright and unfaded.


A novel in which, "more extremely than any previous Dick book, inhabits the badlands within which the real and the ersatz interpentrate: suppliers of a hallucinogenic drug which makes life tolerable for Martian colonists facing opposition from the sinister Eldritch, whose own new drug, Chew-Z (imaged in language which recalls the Communion wafer), pre-empts reality entirely" (The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). A superior copy, ranked #44 on David Pringle's list "Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels." Provenance: From the estate of science fiction publisher and editor Franklyn M. Dietz, founder of the Lunarians (NY Science Fiction Society). Levack 40a; Sargent, p.294.
