WHO GOES THERE? SEVEN TALES OF SCIENCE-FICTION. Chicago: Shasta Publishers, 1948. Octavo, cloth. First edition. One of an undetermined number of subscriber copies signed on the front free endpaper by Campbell. Classic collection of stories first published under Campbell's pseudonym, Don A. Stuart, in ASTOUNDING SCIENCE FICTION between 1934 and 1938. "These short stories are much better than the author's novel-length space operas, and constitute a fascinating body of work." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-13. The title story has been filmed twice, the first in 1951 as "The Thing From Another World", one of the classic Science Fiction films of the 1950s (with James Arness in the title role), and by John Carpenter in 1982 as "The Thing." See Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-211. See Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 2003-07. A near fine copy in very good dust jacket (wraparound illustration by Hannes Bok) with some mild rubbing at edges, small v-chip from upper spine end which extends on the left to the top of the 'W' in "WHO," and some age tanning to spine panel. (#127844).
