THE PUPPET MASTERS

Heinlein, Robert A.

Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1951. First edition. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to spine ends. A sharp copy, elusive in this condition. (17081). Octavo, cloth. Parasitic slug "masters" from outer space "attach themselves to human hosts and control their every thought and action ... Speaking through a host, a master offers mankind a life of contentment, peace, and security of surrender, and the offer appears genuine ... [The novel] allegorizes modern anxiety about the preservation of freedom ... Heinlein anticipates that moment when a man must make the fateful choice between security and freedom." - Berger, Science Fiction and the New Dark Age, p. 106. "Fast-moving tale of paranoid (anti-Communist?) fears run wild. Well handled, a classic of it type." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 291. Filmed in 1994 with Donald Sutherland. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-205. Pringle: Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels #4.

The Puppet Masters

Heinlein, Robert A.

New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc, 1951. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. Octavo size, 219 pp. Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988), called "the dean of science fiction", wrote massively influential works of science fiction, addressing social themes such as the relationship of the individual to society, the influence of organised religion, and personal liberty and self-reliance. He was one of the first science fiction writers to have work serialised in mainstream publications, such as "The Saturday Evening Post" in the late 1940s. "The Puppet Masters" is a gripping story of the human race fending off an invading group of mind-controlling aliens (the 1956 film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" has a similar premise), kindling a sense of paranoia and distrust; the aliens are clearly analogous to Communist Russia at the time, and the book is a compelling representation of the Red Scare that was pervasive in the United States. This volume appears to be an early reprint, not a Book Club edition; it lacks the "first edition" statement on the copyright page, but is priced and has no Book Club dot. ___DESCRIPTION: Full tan cloth with burgendy lettering and publisher's device on the spine, title page with black-and-white publisher's device; octavo size (8" by 5.5"), pagination: [1-8] 9-219. Vintage bookseller's ticket from "The White House" on the rear paste-down endpaper. In a cream paper dust jacket showing the original price of $2.75, with black, white, and yellow illustration on the front cover and spine, white and yellow lettering on the front cover and spine, back cover with a black-and-white illustration of a space ship with publisher's ad for other sci-fi titles, front flap with a summary of the book, back flap with an author bio and black-and-white photograph. ___CONDITION: Volume is very good, with straight corners with no rubbing, a strong, text block with solid hinges (lightly cocked), the interior is clean and bright, and the only prior marking we see is the bookseller's ticket mentioned above; some minor soiling to the edges of the front and back boards, some very slight soiling to the fore-edge of the text block, some rubbing to the head and tail of the spine, and slight age-toning to the front and back endpapers. The dust jacket is good, unclipped, with overall soiling, age-toning to the interior, traces of old damp-stain to the back panel and flap, edge wear to the top and bottom edges, and some chipping to the edges and the head and tail of the spine. ___POSTAGE:  International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.

The Puppet Masters

HEINLEIN, ROBERT A. (DICK, PHILIP K.)

New York: Signet, 1952. First Edition - Paperback. Ownership inscription. From the library of Joan Simpson, the woman with whom science fiction author Philip K. Dick shared his last serious romantic relationship. Laid in is a documentation book mark stating that this book is from the Simpson library with photographs of Philip and Joan and with the text of a letter, dated April 27, 1977, which Philip wrote to his friend, noted book dealer Ray Torrence, lovingly and eloquently expressing his deep feelings for Joan. On the ending of their relationship in late 1977, this from ‘Divine Invasions. A Life of Philip K. Dick’ by Lawrence Sutin, pg. 252: “...Phil now balked at a permanent move back to Northern California, and Joan would not consider Orange County residence. The relationship ended. For years to come, Phil would miss Joan - the last woman with whom he lived in a serious relationship.” Very good lightly used copy with a touch of chipping to the top of the spine and some edge wear in printed wrappers.
