Very nice condition, other than a small hole punch upper corner of cover, otherwise clean & unmarked, with only light edgewear to cover. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; "....Aldiss offers a short book of enigmatic fables.

The moral message of conciliation and understanding is repeatedly undercut by the sad reminder of selfish human nature. Only one entry breaks free from this limited format: "The Girl Who Sang," which is alone here in creating characters and a specific, evocative background (it is set in the world of the Helliconia novels).
