(#148658) FIRST CONTRACT. Greg Costikyan.

FIRST CONTRACT. New York: Tor, [2000]. Octavo, boards. First edition. Costikyan's only sf novel, "an odd but beguiling satire in which aliens -- depicted in broad cartoon-like strokes -- ruthlessly apply free-market interplanetary capitalist practices to those, i.e. entrepreneurs of the Western World, who had previously profited from applying those same principles to our own Third World. In the end, humans triumph, but the pleasingly sour -- and knowledgeable -- taste remains." - Neal Tringham and John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#148658).

Price: $25.00
