FOOTFALL. New York: Ballantine Books, . Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "The aliens displaced from the outline of LUCIFER'S HAMMER come into their own here, in an invasion story that aspires to be the definitive modern version of the theme, just as THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE attempted to provide a definitive first contact story. Spectacular in scale and detail. Compare Wells's THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (1898) and Heinlein's THE PUPPET MASTERS (1951) to put the story in historical perspective." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-809. 1986 Hugo nominee. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#3888).
