(#159847) A SPECTER IS HAUNTING TEXAS. Fritz Leiber.

A SPECTER IS HAUNTING TEXAS. New York: Walker and Company, [1969]. Octavo, boards. First edition. "Texas has absorbed the rest of the United States, its citizens using hormone treatments to turn themselves into giants. The hero, and actor who has been reared in space, becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution among the Mexican underclass. Perhaps the best of Leiber's SF comedies, a satire which fires exuberantly in all directions." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 340.
