Description:
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1967. First Edition. First printing. Octavo. Gray cloth hardcover; dustjacket; 126pp. A fine copy but for a small shadow left by the laid-in publisher's review slip on the front endpaper. In the original dustwrapper, bottom flap corner clipped by publisher but $2.95 price remaining at upper corner; touch of creasing to base of rear panel, still Very Good to Near Fine. Nice copy of this somewhat uncommon late-career novel for young adults, a cautionary tale of the evil effects of LSD. By the prolific pulp and sci-fi author K.F. Crossen. Under the same pseudonym (derived from "mechaber," Hebrew for "author"), Crossen penned the popular series of Milo March mysteries between 1952 and 1973, and this is the only non-March novel to use the "M.E. Chaber" pseudonym. Interestingly, the fifth March novel (The Splintered Man, 1955) also used LSD as a central plot device, one of the earlier appearances of synthetic hallucinogens in fiction.
