TWILIGHT WORLD. Poul Anderson.

TWILIGHT WORLD. New York: A Torquil Book Distributed by Dodd, Mead & Company, [1961]. Octavo, boards. First edition, trade issue with dust jacket priced "$2.95." Fix-up novel comprising "Tomorrow's Children" (1947), Anderson's first published story, and "Logic" (1947), with a new final section. "Dour adventure in a world of genetic mutations caused by an all-out nuclear war. In its early form this was one of the first sf stories to deal with this theme." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 390. The final section of the story, however, is upbeat, Earth's mutants, now Homo superior, have colonized most of the Solar System and have begun a project to terraform the blasted, ruined Earth. Brians, Nuclear Holocausts: Atomic War in Fiction, 1895-1984, pp. 118-9. A fine copy in very good dust jacket with light wear at edges, mainly spine ends and front corner tips, and some tanning to rear cover. A nice copy overall. One of Anderson's scarcest U.S. hardcover books. (#150089).

Price: $250.00
