MAPS: THE UNCOLLECTED JOHN SLADEK. Edited by David Langford. [Abingdon, Oxon, United Kingdom]: Big Engine, [2002}. Octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. This collection, "edited by David Langford, assembles all the previously uncollected short work that was then known. A further lighthearted story from 'The Steam-Driven Boy' era subsequently came to light in Sladek's papers and appeared as 'The Real Martian Chronicles' (May/June 2010 F&SF) ... As the most formally inventive, the funniest, and very nearly the most melancholy of modern American sf writers, Sladek (1937-2000) always addressed the heart of the genre, but never gained due renown. We needed his attention, which we got: he deserved ours, which he did not receive." - John Clute, SFE (online). Trade paperback format. A fine copy. This edition is uncommon. (#161449).
