THE WORLD OF [NULL] A.

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1948. Octavo, illustration by Lee Manso, cloth. First edition. Signed inscription by Van Vogt - "My very best wishes / A. E. Van Vogt." "A space-operatic mystery story in its author's best vein, with a hero who seemingly can die and be reborn endlessly (thanks to his 'non-Aristotelian' mental powers). It's dreadful old garbage by any reasonable critical standard, and yet it has a dreamlike conviction which has endeared it to generations of readers. The works of van Vogt, which have provided so much escapist joy, are among the great embarrassments of modern SF." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 427. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1158. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2501-05. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to extremities. (11253). Item #11253
