London, Gollancz, 1937. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Uncommon in jacket, increasingly so inscribed. Inscribed by the author 'To John Hampson from 'Murray Constantine' July 1937'. Hampson was an author for the Hogarth Press and critic. A landmark feminist novel, and a classic work of science fiction, recently reprinted in the SF Masterworks series from Gollancz. Shocking and prescient novel of a world after seven hundred years of Nazi domination. Murray Constantine was a pseudonym, used also for the 1934 novel Proud Man. The pseudonym was only revealed in the 1980s when feminist scholar Daphne Patai identified the author as novelist Katharine Burdekin, who had been attentive to the meaning of the Nazi ideology to predict in Swastika Night the annihilation of the Jews, the homosexual fetishism in the military, and the utter subjugation of women, who are kept apart as breeding animals. Hitler is revered as a god and the rotten secret at the heart of the Nazi hierarchy is that the birth rate is falling. Near fine with some fading to the spine and a little toning.
