multi-coloured titles spine; first Ballantine paperback printing (F 561); cover art by Richard Powers; "Somewhere in his background there must lurk a frustrated medico, for Leiber writes with a scalpel & a wicked sense of humor. His target this time is the whole world of the Iiterati-writers, publishers, reviewers, and the great reading public - a rich field of self-flatterers, phony intellectuals and soft-headed businessmen to which he does full justice. But because he writes with, infinite glee, he' s not vicious: he doesn't hate the world or,the people in it. He simply has fiendish fun in cutting through to expose the frenzied, tangled, Heath Robinson structure beneath' the complacent surface. He takes apart many a cherished shibboleth in the, process, while his disporting in the realm of robots, robixes, feminae and other ingenious contrivences of the future is sheer delight." a tight copy; 192 pages.
