SYMBIOTE'S CROWN. New York: A Berkley Book published by Berkley Publishing Corporation, . Octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. This American writer has mostly produced horror and fantasy. "... his only SF novel is his first book, SYMBIOTE'S CROWN (1978), a slyly intelligent though uneasily metaphysical space opera involving intricate hegiras through parallel worlds." - SFE (online). Thanks to the discovery of "dimensional transfer," a professional counselor helps an unhappy human couple experience alien worlds -- as aliens. The result sounds a bit like an intersection of STARMAKER and that long-running television soap opera, Guiding Light. Reginald 17267. Some rubbing to upper part of front spine fold, a bright, nearly fine, unread copy. (#146593).
