    Description

    Jaunting in the Twenty-Fourth Century

    Alfred Bester. Tiger! Tiger! London: Sidgwick and Jackson, [1956]. First edition. Octavo. [232] pages. Publisher's dark blue paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt, in original dust jacket. Light age-darkening to text block (less than usual for this book), owner's signature in pencil at top edge of front free endpaper. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket, with touch of wear at spine ends and corner tips, and a touch of internal age-darkening with just a bit of show through on rear panel, mostly along flap fold. A sharp, superior copy of this book.

    More Information: "Twenty-fourth century spaceman, Gully Foyle, discovers the ability to 'jaunt' (Teleport) and seeks revenge on the owner of the spacecraft which left him to die in the void. Neurotically driven but ultimately humane, with amazing backdrops, brilliant detail, tremendous narrative energy: the finest novel of its kind." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 350. This edition differs textually from the U.S. edition published the following year as The Stars My Destination, Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-118. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 20. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2168-72.
