A presentation copy with signed inscription by Morrow to F&SF editor/publisher/critic David G. Hartwell on the title page: "For David, / This tale of / annihilation and hope ... / Best wishes, / Jim." Signed in full by Morrow above the inscription. Issued as part of the Easton Press "Masterpieces of Science Fiction" series. New introduction by James Gunn. "... soon after the book begins, the nuclear Holocaust of World War Three kills all but a few, who are then transported via submarine to Antarctica, where they are put on trial by the "unadmitted" -- those souls who will now never be born. As an idea it is perhaps more effective in paraphrase than within the constraints of a fictional narrative, though the decency of the book clearly transcends the inevitable disembodiedness of its message." - GS/JC, SFE (online). 1986 Nebula nominee.
