"Future America is ruled partly by a Mafia-like mob and partly by a more benign organization referred to as "the fat, sloppy, happy Syndic." An enjoyable adventure story with satirical barbs and an underlying darkness of tone." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 360. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-612. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2211-14. Boards a bit faded (a fault common to this book), top edge of text block foxed, some tanning to endpapers, a nearly fine copy in very good dust jacket with some general soiling and foxing to the rear panel. (#156654).
