BEST SF STORIES OF C. M. KORNBLUTH. With an Introduction by Edmund Crispin. London: Faber and Faber, . Octavo, cloth. First edition. "A dozen of his finest stories which show the full range of his talent and the subtle mixture of buoyancy and pessimism which underlies his work. We live in a world, Kornbluth seems to say, which is out of joint, where the evil and the innocent suffer alike; and his recurrent themes turn on the eternally fascinating and complex problems of betrayal and retribution." - publisher's blurb. " ... in Kornbluth, not only the ungodly are mangled by the machine, but also the inadvertent; and not only the inadvertent, but the innocent too." - Edmund Crispin. The stories selected include "The Marching Morons," "The Little Black Bag," "The Silly Season," "Gomez," and "With These Hands." A fine copy in fine dust jacket. A very scarce book. (#157371).
