    More Information:

    John W. Campbell, Jr. Who Goes There? Seven Tales of Science-Fiction. Chicago: Shasta Publishers, [1951]. Second edition. Presentation copy, with a superb inscription to Earl Korshak.

    Octavo. [viii], [231], [1, blank] pages. Publisher's beige cloth, spine lettered in green, dust jacket. Jacket spine a bit sunned, and with some minor rubbing and soiling to jacket. Still, a bright, fine copy. This edition was issued to coincide with the release of the classic 1951 science fiction film, The Thing, directed by Christian Nyby (there is mention of the film on the front panel of the jacket). The book is inscribed to "first fan" Earl Korshak, who was an editor for Shasta Publishers. The inscription mentions the film version of the monster, and indicates a bit of dissatisfaction with its "vegetable characteristics".
