TIME OUT OF JOINT. New York: Belmont Books, . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First paperback edition. Belmont Books 92-618. Ragel Gumm lives with his in-laws and supports himself by winning seemingly random newspaper puzzle contests. In fact, his peaceful 1950s small town world is an illusion. The time is really 1998 and his idle newspaper game is preserving Earth's military dictatorship from defeat by secessionist colonists on the Moon. Hint of rubbing to cover edges, tiny sticker with inventory number on inside rear cover, a nearly fine, bright copy. (#153132).
