THE FUTURIANS: THE STORY OF THE SCIENCE FICTION "FAMILY" OF THE 30'S THAT PRODUCED TODAY'S TOP WRITERS AND EDITORS. New York: John Day, [1977]. Octavo, gray wrappers printed in black. Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. A personal, not always reliable, account of the New York Futurian fan group that included major pulp SF writers, Isaac Asimov, James Blish, Cyril M. Kornbluth, Judith Merril and others. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) 10-171. Wrappers a bit dusty, some spotting to rear cover, a very good copy. A very scarce proof. Donald and Elsie Wollheims' copy with publisher's cover letter stating the "bound galleys" were sent at Knight's request because he "thought you would be interesting in seeing them ... Any comment you would like to make about THE FUTURIANS would be greatly appreciated." (#162876).
