Arthur C. Clarke

ont> Victor Gollancz Ltd. : London, 1962 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. An uncommon UK first edition of this collection of short stories by Arthur C. Clarke. Arthur C. Clarke was a British science fiction writer and inventor, who is widely regarded as a key figure in the popularisation of space travel. His screenplay for the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was co-written with Stanley Kubrick, is considered to be one of the most influential films of all time. For many years Arthur C. Clarke, along with Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asmiov, were considered the 'Big Three' of science fiction writing. The collection was first published in the USA in 1956, but this is the first UK edition of the collected works. The work contains twelve of Clarke's short stories, including works originally published in science fiction magazines such as Astonishing Science Fiction and New Worlds. Condition: In a red cloth binding in the original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally in excellent condition, with just some slight wear to the extremities and the head and tail of the spine. Spine is slightly sunned. Slight offsetting to endpapers. Dustwrapper is smart with some slight wear to the extremities. Loss to the head and tail of the spine. Wrap is sunned.

CLARKE, ARTHUR C. (DICK, PHILIP K.)

New York: Ballantine, 1956. First Edition - Paperback. From the library of Joan Simpson, the woman with whom science fiction author Philip K. Dick shared his last serious romantic relationship. Laid in is a documentation book mark stating that this book is from the Simpson library with photographs of Philip and Joan and with the text of a letter, dated April 27, 1977, which Philip wrote to his friend, noted book dealer Ray Torrence, lovingly and eloquently expressing his deep feelings for Joan. On the ending of their relationship in late 1977, this from ‘Divine Invasions. A Life of Philip K. Dick’ by Lawrence Sutin, pg. 252: “...Phil now balked at a permanent move back to Northern California, and Joan would not consider Orange County residence. The relationship ended. For years to come, Phil would miss Joan - the last woman with whom he lived in a serious relationship.” A collection of twelve stories.
