Description

An excellent selection of van Vogt's classic stories from the 1940s.

  • Some time in the late '40s, Arkham Press had intended to published a large hardback volume containing his most popular stories. This volume never appeared, and instead the stories were published in two separate volumes by Pellegrini & Cudahy as Away and Beyond and Destination: Universe!

Back Cover & Spine

Year from Master of Null-A.

Although it's not uncommon to see a bit of blurb on a book's spine nowadays — mainly because books are so thick and competition so fierce — in 1953 such a thing was quite rare. This and the Avon edition of The Mind Cage are notable in this respect.
