Richard Milton McKenna (1913 - 1964) was an American sailor, novelist, and sci-fi author. He was perhaps best known for his historical novel, The Sand Pebbles, which tells the story of an American sailor serving aboard a gunboat on the Chinese Yangtze River in 1926. He was also highly praised for his science fiction. Robert Silverberg said that "Fiddler's Green" was "surely the most moving and profound desert-island fantasy ever written." Poul Anderson called Casey Agonistes, "immensely entertaining." SUPERIOR CONDITION: tight, bright, clean with a Fine dj. Faint price stamp on front mauve endpaper.
