(#153048) MICHAELMAS. Algis Budrys.

MICHAELMAS. New York: Published by Berkley Publishing Corporation Distributed by G. P. Putnam's Sons, [1977]. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "A roving TV journalist of the near future becomes the secret ruler of the world, as a result of his cunning manipulation of an artificial intelligence network -- or is the AI manipulating him? Ambitious and richly textured, this is a fundamentally implausible but seductive near-future power dream. In some ways, it prefigures cyberpunk (but lacks the punkish edge)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 236. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-180. Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1387-90. Mild bump to lower rear corner tip, else a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with some wrinkling, mainly rear panel, transferred from the paper backing of an old dust jacket protector. (#153048).

Price: $45.00
