THE WORLD OF NULL-A. London: Dennis Dobson, [1969]. Octavo, boards. First British edition. Briefly inscribed by van Vogt to "Ken" on the title page. "A space-operatic mystery story in its author's best vein, with a hero who seemingly can die and be reborn endlessly (thanks to his 'non-Aristotelian' mental powers). It's dreadful old garbage by any reasonable critical standard, and yet it has a dreamlike conviction which has endeared it to generations of readers. The works of van Vogt, which have provided so much escapist joy, are among the great embarrassments of modern SF." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 427. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1158. Lower front corner tip lightly bumped, tiny stain on front free endpaper, a nearly fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with matching bump and clipped price. (#162348).

Price: $50.00
