THE WOODROW WILSON DIME. New York: Simon and Schuster, . Octavo, cloth. First edition. A humorous parallel world fantasy. Finney's recurrent theme of a lost past or alternate now where life and love are somehow better is most fully realized in THE WOODROW WILSON DIME and TIME AND AGAIN (1970), the latter being perhaps his most important novel. His lost past themed 1950s stories influenced the work of Rod Serling, Richard Matheson and Stephen King ("The Ledge" is a homage to Finney's "Contents of the Dead Man's Pocket"). Waggoner, The Hills of Faraway 389. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. A very sharp copy. Uncommon in this condition. (#157544).
