George Barr Cover Art & Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition. Sub-titled Selected Titles 1952 - 1996 and contains twenty-four stories plus a foreword "About Dick Lupoff" by Robert Silverberg ,an introduction by the author "How I Learned to Read" ,a fourteen page bibliography by David Nee and from the front flap the triple Edgar Award winning author Joe Gores writes."Lupoff has a very big and very ancient soul ,so he understands the human animal as few others do.His stories ,whether science fiction ,fantasy ,mainstream ,suspense or parody , have a unique human quality that cannot be called nostalgia for what was ,but rather wistfulness for what should have been .Yet when a hard edge is called for ,his prose cuts cleanly .This collection will stir ,bemuse ,delight ,instruct and excite you ." The wraparound cover painting and the eight full page black and white illustrations are by the much overlooked artist George Barr who paints with the beauty and eloquence of the best of Hannes Bok's work. Issued in a trade edition of 2000 copies ,bound in black cloth with gold spine titles ,there was also a 100 copy limited edition that was numbered and signed by Lupoff and Barr and was in a decorative slipcase.
