STAND ON ZANZIBAR. John Brunner.

STAND ON ZANZIBAR. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1968. Large octavo, cloth. First edition. "Mammoth attempt to picture the world as it may well be in the early twenty-first century -- overpopulated, over automated, and torn by riots and muggings. The pop sociologist Chad C. Mulligan comments wryly on it all, and he is the nearest thing to a hero in this densely peopled book. Primarily didactic in intent, it borrows surface bravura from John Dos Passos's social realist USA trilogy (1930-1936). Brunner's most successful novel." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 343. Winner of the 1969 Hugo award for best novel. 1968 Nebula nominee. Winner of the 1970 British Science Fiction Association Award for best novel and the French Prix Apollo. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-175. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2140-45. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket which is slightly trimmed. A superior copy of this book. (#148527).
