THE BIG TIME. New York: Ace Books, Inc., . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Ace Double D491. "The so-called Snakes and Spiders are opposing factions in a time war, who recruit their troops from various periods of history. This story, which reads almost like a play, involves just one tiny piece of the action, but a vaster background is richly suggested." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 40. Winner of the 1958 Hugo award for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-650. Survey of Science Fiction Literature, pp. 218-22. Light wear to spine ends, rubbing along outer hinges, still a tight, bright, very good copy. (#140327).
