Hardcover first edition, first printing and true first edition. Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. This copy is one of the rare, surviving first printings of the first edition. (Both "First edition: May 1995" and the number sequence "0987654321" appear on the copyright page.) The first edition was recalled by Tor because of an "unacceptably large numbers of errors in the text." The defective copies were exchanged for copies of the second printing (really the 2nd edition) which corrected all the errors. SF novel set in a dark, harrowing 21st century. "Barnes has constructed a brutal vision of a history that might have been .... (his last line is absolutely chilling)." - Locus, June 1995 pg. 57. Barnes is the author of Orbital Resonance (1991 Nebula Nominee), A Million Open Doors (1992 Nebula Nominee), Mother of Storms (1994 Hugo and 1995 Nebula Nominee), and co-author of Encounter with Tiber (with Buzz Aldrin). His work is provocative, gritty, hard-SF, and touching distance away from finally winning the awards he richly deserves. He only gets better.
