AN INFINITE SUMMER. London, Boston: Faber and Faber, [1979]. Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed on the title page by Priest. The author's second collection of short fiction, including two Hugo nominees. "Five delicate sf/fantasy stories about time and perception. Most notable are the title piece, 'Palely Loitering' and 'The Watched.' Priest is not really a stylist, but these tales are poetically conceived: he manages to evoke a curious, haunting atmosphere by dogged attention to detail and his characters' unusual states of mind." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 186. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-880. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#168174).
