The Big U (First Edition of Author's First Novel)

Stephenson, Neal

New York: Vintage Books, 1984. First Edition, First Printing. Paperback. Very Near Fine. Illustrated wraps, 8vo (7-7/8 inches tall), pp. 307, stated first edition. Volume with only the slightest signs of wear, touch of fade to spine and minor rippling of text block from binding process. An excellent copy, lacking the unsightly remainder mark commonly found. Never released in hardcover, The Big U remained out of print until 2001 when HarperCollins republished it in a second paperback edition. This is the 1984, first edition paperback original. "My first published novel, written on a borrowed typewriter in a steaming hot garret in Iowa City while sucking down lukewarm Pickett's. Originally a "loose and baggy monster," it was beaten into some semblance of publishable condition by my first editor, Gary Fisketjon, and published with a suitably lurid cover that still makes me laugh when I see it at book signings. But it entitled me to say that I was a published novelist, and it marks the beginning of my career and my adult life." Neal Stephenson.

The Big U

Stephenson, Neal

First edition trade paperback original, a Near Fine- copy with slight creasing at bottom front corner, a longer, very shallow crease above that (I missed it the first time I looked at it), two phantom creases on top rear cover, a slight half-dime sized discoloration at bottom rear cover edge, and a few very slightly dog-eared pages at front, plus the usual glue bunching of pages seen on all copies of this title. Better looking overall than this list of flaws would lead you to believe, and the spine is bright and unbroken. Not perfect, but still a collectable copy of Stephenson's first novel. $95.

New York: Vintage Books. Near Fine. 1984. First Edition. Softcover. 0394723627 . [tight, attractive, apparently unread copy; mild edgewear, a bit of soiling to page edges, faint red stripe across top edge, a couple of tiny creases in front cover]. Trade PB Very presentable copy of the author's first novel, a trade paperback original about campus life described as "One flew over the animal house." Stephenson's long-standing resolve to never allow this early work to be reprinted did finally crumble,and a reissue is now available; given the following he has now achieved, however, this true first edition will remain no less collectable in years to come. .
