London, Granada, 1982. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Inscribed by Clarke to the front endpaper: 'To Graham Shanks, with all good wishes, Arthur C. Clarke'. A little rolling to the edges, but largely a very nice copy. Small nick to lower fore corner. Note: this is the second state - there is another state with Clarke's name misspelled on the title page. Cover art by Michael Whelan [8430, Hyraxia Books].
