A TOUCH OF STRANGE. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1958. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Story collection. "Nine SF stories, more long than short, have an added ingredient of philosophy, of the theory that 'never can a sole unit exist alone and unsupplied,' and of the necessity of communication. The title piece tells of the meeting of a couple who have been in love with merpeople; there's a girl who is kept alive with a new skin each day; there's a would be boss of the universe; and there are weird developments in worlds of the far future. Soberer than the standard brand." - Kirkus. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-363. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1562. A nearly fine copy in very good price-clipped dust jacket with several tiny closed tears at lower edge of front panel, a touch of wear to corner tips, mild wear to spine ends, and moderate overall soiling to the jacket, but less than usual. (#156650).
