Arkham House's first foray into Science Fiction was the very popular ASTOUNDING novel, SLAN—a virtual "Best Seller" for AH as it sold out its sizable print-run of 4051 copies quickly. Puzzling that Derleth didn't catch-on that SF was the fiction of the futuref and at least intersperse a follow-up between his WEIRD TALES stories, every now and again! Signed & inscribed by A. E. Van Vogt and his 2nd wife Lydia, don't ask me why! For a few years there VanVogt conventioned with Lydia and he always had her sign copies of his books with him, even though SLAN was dedicated to his first wife—writer W. Mayne Hull! Very good copy—one corner fold straightened—page edges just lightly dusted; some edge wear to d.j., at corners; dj. fade to light-gray; price-clipped d.j. Nice tight copy. A listing from the Richard M. Jefts complete Arkham House collection. #RMJ20.
