(#107639) WOLFBANE. Kornbluth, M., Frederik Pohl, M.

WOLFBANE. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1960. Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. Signed inscription by Pohl to one of his book editors on front free endpaper. "Pyramid-shaped aliens wrench the Earth from its orbit, and turn the remnants of humanity into fleshly machine components. But one talented individual finds the resources to mount a rebellion. An extremely odd story, part satire and part gosh-wow tale of super-science. The fourth and last collaborative SF novel by these talented authors (Kornbluth died in 1958). In a 1986 revision Pohl has smoothed over some of the first edition's faults." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 424-5. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-865. Some age-darkening to top and fore-edges of text block, slight spine lean, front board a bit warped, a near fine copy in very good dust jacket with a vertical tape stain along center of rear flap with just a bit offset on rear free endpaper. A cheaply made book that does not age gracefully. Scarce. (#107639).
