    More Information:

    "One of the few science fiction novels of the 1930s that was considered a major work by the critics, this is a bitterly dystopian novel of 632 A.F. (After Ford). Funnier than the totally grim 1984, it stresses cloning, test tube babies, and genetic, hypnopedic, and drug control of the population, by a benevolent ruling class...Deeply thought-provoking and exceptionally well written, this is a seminal novel for modern SF." (Barron, Anatomy of Wonder 104).

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
