mushroom jungle gurus Harbottle and Holland found it 'marred by shaky plotting and a sleazy undercurrent', but the cover is ROYALE.

I've always enjoyed Simak's work. Though I no longer have a copy, I remember Time and Again as a thought provoking work and somewhere I have my Ace copy of City. Thanks for the posting.

Great additions to your collection. It seems every time I run across BLB books they are either titles with lesser appeal, are missing pages, or they are crumbling. Yours is in very nice shape! (thumbs u

Simak is one of my favorite authors, but it has been quite a few years since I have read some of his books, including City. I hope to rectify that in the not too distant future.

 

A couple of days ago I obtained this Ace double at the LBS. Inside it has an brief note and signature by Poul Anderson. I don't know if it's real or not and would welcome an opinion from someone who knows signatures.

the first PB appearance of Woolrich's 'Marihuana' was in the 1947 Pop Lib 'Six Times Death', that also features 'The Night Reveals' a harrowing yarn where a detective investigating a series of fires starts to suspect that his wife is the arsonist...

Case of the Dancing Sandwiches takes the cake as the best title! I just googled it too, story doesn't sound 1/2 bad.

 

Love the headlights on the dame in pink too! ;)
