DANCING ON THE VOLCANO. London: Orbit, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed and dated on the title page by Gay. The author's third novel. "The Queen Iruna sequence –- comprising DANCING ON THE VOLCANO (1993) and TO BATHE IN LIGHTNING (1995) -– somewhat less energetically places its protagonist in opposition to a strait Matriarchy, and follows her successful career in terms which conflate SF interests, family romance, and echoes of the Matter of Britain." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#145756).
