The first book published after the author's heart attack and subsequent quadruple bypass, in 1996. The late author's lengthy introduction is worth the price of admission.

The limitation plate is SIGNED in full by both the author, and cover artist—Jill Bauman, and noted as "A/C" —author's copy. A fine copy in d.j., slipcased.
