TIGER! TIGER! London: Sidgwick and Jackson, [1956]. Octavo, boards. First edition. Nice inscription by Bester dated December 1974 to one of his later book editors signed "Alfie" on the title page. "Twenty-fourth century spaceman, Gully Foyle, discovers the ability to 'jaunt' (Teleport) and seeks revenge on the owner of the spacecraft which left him to die in the void. Neurotically driven but ultimately humane, with amazing backdrops, brilliant detail, tremendous narrative energy: the finest novel of its kind." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 350.
