About This Item

WAITING---, Forge, 1999, first published edition, fine in color pictorial wraps. ADVANCE READING COPY. Humanity fights for survival along side another race----of humans. (This novel was set to be published by Tor in 1997. But it was canceled / delayed for 2 years and then published by Forge. No copies of this book exist noting Tor as the publisher. And there is no mention of A Tor publication on the copyright page. However, there was a Tor Proof issued in 1997, but to locate one is next to impossible).

About THE FINE BOOKS COMPANY

The Fine Books Company, which began purchasing rare and collectible items in 1976 and selling same in 1979, is located everywhere a computer may be accessed. A 34 year member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, we have travelled to, purchased and sold books on, every continent ( save Antarctica as we are unaware of any commercial book activity there). Although we may be biased towards the fields of creativity, namely all genres of fiction in first edition, we have branched out to include many areas of non-fiction as well so that our stock of over 40,000 items, which includes books, periodicals, letters and manuscripts, is now more balanced than it has ever been before. We issue occasional virtual catalogues (which only reveal a small portion of our newest inventory), quickly reply to all inquiries, do appraisals upon request and somehow have managed to publish 18 books along the way. A "Heritage" member of AbeBooks as well, our specialty is service.
