CROYD: A DOWNTIME FANTASY. Ian Wallace, John W. Pritchard.

CROYD: A DOWNTIME FANTASY. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, [1967]. Octavo, cloth. First edition. The author's first novel. "The eponymous superman has telepathic abilities and is able to travel through time. This first episode of his adventures is a large-scale galaxy-busting space opera, replete with aliens and all the standard ingredients. It's rumbustiously told, somewhat in the manner of Robert A. Heinlein (with a large dash of A. E. von Vogt)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition, p. 82. "The first of a series of sophisticated van Vogtian superman stories, in which the eponymous hero must continually save the galaxy." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1206. A scarce and unjustly ignored minor SF classic. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with touch of rubbing to black background ink along upper and lower edges of front panel, 8 mm closed tear at top edge of front panel, and clipped price. (#141809).

Price: $100.00
