Description:
New York:: Morrow,, 1981.. Ex-library with markings and significant reading wear, tape reinforcements to the edges of the boards, but in a very good- unmarked dust jacket (some wear to the top of the dj spine.) Although this is a first edition - the only hardcover edition - this is a reading copy only with most of the value in the dust jacket. . First printing. His first novel, and probably his best so far, set 13 centuries in the future on an earth devasted by alien energy, and populated by mutated humans. Nominated for the Nebula Award. Very uncommon in the hardcover edition, since this was published simultaneous in both hardcover and trade paperback. Reportedly the first hardcover publication was only 1000 copies, and many, if not most, probably went to libraries as this copy did. Attractive dust jacket art by Fred Marcellino. 467 pp.

Description:
New York: William Morrow & Company. Very Good in Good+ dust jacket 1981. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good 1st Ed in Good+ $-clipped jacket 8vo. The first edition was limited to 1000 copies. This is a handsome library retiree, brown 1/4 cloth & gilt titles spine, perfect bound, sienna paperboards with two trivial faults. (Tape remnants on pastedowns; blindstamp on TP, pocket removal R endpaper.) Certainly Attanasio's best book. ; Ex-Library; 467 pages; Ambitious, cosmic-scale-but-flawed first novel, Aug 7, 2001, Reviewer: AndyC from Canberra, Australia: I am glad that I read the later, harder-SF "Centuries" before "Radix". Attanasio operates well as either a hard SF writer or as a metaphysical fantasist. In this, his first book, he tries to be both at once and it doesn't quite work. "Radix" is a saga of a far-future Earth in which mutation has gone rampant after a cosmological cataclysm. Daringly, lead character Sumner Kagan starts off as a… Read More

Description:
New York: William Morrow and Company, 1981. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. The scarce hardbound issue; reportedly only 1000 copies so bound. The author's first book and the first book of the Radix Tetrad sequence that "works as a complex meditation on metamorphosis elaborated within a space opera frame, so that densely ambitious moments of poetic aspiration alternate with episodes out of the rag-and-bone shop of pulp magazine fiction; this early use of space opera as frame or arena for baroque exfoliations of story immediately prefigures the similarly exorbitant work of Iain M. Banks and Dan Simmons ... After losing her radiation shield, which guards her against the full nakedness of the universe, Earth begins to mutate savagely, a transformation articulated clearly in RADIX itself through the story of a mutant superman, who undergoes the same transcendental jumpstart that jolts his planet through terrors and dimensions. - John Clute, SFE (online). 1981 Nebula nominee.
