4th Printing. Publisher's glossy pictorial wraps. 12mo. 158 pp. Former owner's initials on fep, else near fine. VERY GOOD. Classic science-fiction about Adapted Men; in this novel, rather than using terraforming to enable humanity to colonize other worlds, humans are changed in order to adapt to worlds that would otherwise be totally inimical to human life. They have the minds of men but not the bodies. Planted on planets centuries ago in order to conquer the galaxy, these man mutations have gradually gained control of space. Now they are looking for new worlds to settle. And in their search, it is only natural that they turn to Earth. Here is a fascinating and frightening novel of the future and of a daring plan to colonize the universe - a plan that works too well. It includes the justly popular, wonderful novella Surface Tension. [Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 3-23][Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 1888-91]. . Mass Market Paperback. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
