INVOLUTION OCEAN. [New York]: A Jove/HBJ Book, [1977]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. "A memoir of the baroque adventures and moral education of a young man who joins the crew of a dustwhaler, a ship that sails upon a sea of dust within a vast crater, seventy miles deep, on a waterless planet, in search of a mysterious prey; the influence of Herman Melville's MOBY DICK (1851) is clear throughout." - Colin Greenland and John Clute, SFE (online). A "mite pretentious, but, all in all, a colorful apprentice work." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 190. The author's first book. Introduction by Harlan Ellison. Paperback original. A touch of edge rubbing, a fine, unread copy. (#155483).
