THE ABYSS. London, Sydney, Auckland, Johannesburg: Century A Legend Book, . Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. Novel based on the screenplay by James Cameron. "An effective undersea mystery involving the crew of an-up-to-date drilling rig and an abyssal alien presence. In his afterword, Card makes great play of the fact that this is no mere 'novelization,' but a novel which genuinely complements the movie. It is in fact a superior example of its type, more faithful to its filmic original than most." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. . A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#169720).
