DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE SOMETHING FURTHER TO ADD? STORIES ABOUT SECRET PLACES AND MEAN MEN. Lafferty.

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE SOMETHING FURTHER TO ADD? STORIES ABOUT SECRET PLACES AND MEAN MEN. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1974]. Large octavo, 177 leaves printed on rectos only, white wrappers, spiral black plastic spine. Xerographic reproduction of long galleys (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. The author's third collection of short fiction, "sixteen stories by a satirist whose fantasies are peopled with appealing grotesqueries. R. A. Lafferty's unique imaginative world, sardonic and strange, is shown to its best advantage in his short fiction ... In DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE SOMETHING FURTHER TO ADD? we are treated to a full complement of Lafferty's malicious virtuosity and sly tomfoolery." - Greta Eisner. Includes "Mad Man," a tale of the future in which the creation of robots depends on a chemical produced only by people in furious rages, and "Maybe Jones and the City," a parody of the utopian impulse in which the protagonist searches the universe for the Perfect Place. One of the major short story collections of the 1970s. Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 574-78. See Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-622. Wrappers soiled, internally fine. A photocopy of the publisher's "editorial report" is laid in. A rare proof. (#158882).
