THE BEST SELLER: A SYNOPSIS. John Sladek.

THE BEST SELLER: A SYNOPSIS. N.p., n.d. [London, circa: 1970]. Octavo, pp. [1-20] (unnumbered), plus three supplemental leaves laid in, mimeographed from typewritten copy, pictorial wrappers, stapled. First edition. Issued as "Strange Faeces Number One," edited by Opal L. Nations (pseudonym?). Apparently a one-shot fanzine (we know of no subsequent issues). The story is copyright 1966 leading Contento (and possibly other bibliographers) to misdate the booklet 1966. However, the booklet's brief note on Sladek states that "he has lived in Notting Hill for four years" [Sladek moved to London in 1966] and "has had 3 successful books, one of which -- BLACK ALICE [first published in 1968] –- holds a Hollywood movie option." The story was first collected in Sladek's THE STEAM-DRIVEN BOY (1973) and later appeared in THE BEST OF JOHN SLADEK (1981). A fine copy. Rare. (#147067).

Price: $150.00
