One of the stories here, "Catching a 'Kappa,' or Water Imp," is supernatural. The translator's views on translation are of some interest. He made first a faithful literal translation.

SOFT TARGETS

New York: Ace Books, [1979].. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First mass market edition. Geopolitical thriller set in the near future about the activities of Middle Eastern international terrorists.

"A near future thriller in which a media campaign is waged against international terrorists -- who, it is believed, may be defeated by ridicule ... an interesting attempt to deal with a major modern problem." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 333. Reginald 26286. Top edge of pages lightly spotted, a bright, nearly fine, unread copy. (#156789)

Ingalls, Rachel

Harvard and Boston: The Harvard Common Press A Gambit Book, [1982].. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First U. S. edition.

Republication of the two surviving parts of the 1881 edition published in Ashburton, New Zealand, by the [Ashburton] Guardian Office. 50-page introduction, notes and bibliography by Dominic Alessio. "Eutopia set in 2143. The focus in the eutopia is on the ability to read thoughts and its effect on behavior. Women are less able to control their thoughts than men. Crime becomes impossible.
