TIME OUT OF JOINT. London: The Science Fiction Book Club, . Octavo, boards. First British hardcover edition. Ragel Gumm lives with his in-laws and supports himself by winning seemingly random newspaper puzzle contests. In fact, his peaceful 1950s small town world is an illusion. The time is really 1998 and his idle newspaper game is preserving Earth's military dictatorship from defeat by secessionist colonists on the Moon. Slight spine lean, a nearly fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to purple ink. Science Fiction News, #54 (October 1961) laid in. (#172545).
No statement of printing.
