INVERSIONS. New York, London, Toronto, Sydney, Singapore: Pocket Books, . Octavo, boards. First U.S. edition. INVERSIONS "returns to a more domestic environment, a single planet where two Culture representatives, who never meet, and who represent opposing views on the implications of making Contact with 'lower' civilizations, engender consequences ironically unsuspected by either of them -– each, in a sense, making the other's point, gaining the other's goal." - John Clute and David Langford, SFE (online). Remainder stripe on bottom edge of text block, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#161486).
