NY: St. Martin's Press, 1977. First edition. Signed by Pohl, in his rather cramped fashion, on the half-title. Octavo (8.5 x 5.75 in.), 313pp., blue textured paper boards, in dust jacket. Light bumping to spine ends and bottom corners, else fine in a fine, unclipped ("$8.95") jacket showing light crumpling and a miniscule closed tear at base of spine.
An eminently collectible copy of this high point of 1970s science fiction, the first novel in Pohl's expansive Heechee saga, and winner of three of the genre's most prestigious awards in the novel category: the 1977 Nebula, the 1978 Hugo, and the 1978 John W. Campbell Memorial Award. Dust jacket art by Boris Vallejo.
