London: Kinnell, 1989. First Edition. Octavo. Item #022610
First UK hard cover edition. 310pp. Inscribed and signed by the author ( changing pens because ink was low.) The invading Ashiyyur swept in from beyond the Galaxy. Christopher Sim and his makeshift space navy held back the attacker while Earth debated whether to come to their aid. A stunning victory but the price of victory was the death of Christopher Sim. A fine bright copy bound in maroon cloth, spine lettering gilt, in a fine, unclipped pictorial dust jacket.
