The early 'I Remember, Anita,' about nuclear fears, now seem overwritten and embarrassingly maudlin, but some of the later pieces, such as the title story and 'The Great Clock,' are powerful in a mysterious, Kafkaesque way." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 127. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-577. Wrappers a bit spotted and dusty. some sheets dog-eared at upper right corner, a very good copy. Formerly, author/critic Theodore Sturgeon's copy.
