DYING INSIDE. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, . Octavo, boards. First edition. 1972 Nebula and 1973 Hugo nominee. "David Selig's extraordinary telepathic powers have made him an outcast. He is unable to come to terms with his declining talents and is terrified of losing them. A powerful and moving study that explores from a unique perspective the psychological, moral and social implications of psychic powers, a major concern in contemporary dark fantasy, especially in works such as Kings's THE DEAD ZONE and Matheson's A STIR OF ECHOES. Regarded by many as Silverberg's finest work." - Stefan Dizemianowicz in Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-334. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1017. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-271. Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 671-75. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with several mild scuffs to red background ink (far less than usually found on the jackets for this book). A nice copy. (#168326).
