A PLAGUE OF ANGELS. New York, Toronto, London, Sydney, Auckland: Bantam Books, . Octavo, pictorial wrappers. Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. "The story opens in what appears to be a village from a typical fantasy novel, but eventually is revealed to be something much stranger. A farm boy named Abasio sets out on an adventure to the wicked big city where a supposed witch is assembling an army of androids equipped with high-tech weapons from a long-abandoned space station. Tepper has mixed fantasy and science fiction tropes before, and she does it particularly well here" (Michael Levy). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1129. A fine copy. (#169812).
