WOLFBANE. New York: Ballantine Books, [1959]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Ballantine Books 335K. "The Earth is moved out of its orbit by aliens who capture humans in order to use their bodies in a vast computer complex; it is a precursor to some of the most ambitious work of authors like Stephen Baxter and Greg Bear." - SFE (online). "Pyramid-shaped aliens wrench the Earth from its orbit, and turn the remnants of humanity into fleshly machine components. But one talented individual finds the resources to mount a rebellion. An extremely odd story, part satire and part gosh-wow tale of super-science. The fourth and last collaborative SF novel by these talented authors (Kornbluth died in 1958). In a 1986 revision Pohl has smoothed over some of the first edition's faults." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 424-5. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-865. Touch of dust soiling to spine panel, else a fine copy. Cover art by Richard Powers. (#88175).
