SIGNED on the title page. As new, unread, unclipped and not remaindered. Some light finger "smudges" to the edges. The dustjacket is lightly rubbed to the corners, tiny bump to the tail of the spine and minor shelfwear to show. A stated first edition with the number line to one. From the author of "Fools War" and "Reclamation" which received the Locus Award for Best First Novel and a finalist for the Philip K. Dick Award. She has been described as a writer in the style of Heinlein & Asimov.
