Near Fine. 1st ed/pr, SIGNED on title page by author! ! ! Book is square, solid, with straight spine and crisp edges, with a perfectly sharp DJ in protective mylar Brodart cover.

I always had some interest in how Foster was going to justify some of his "universe", and the pre-Commonwealth books came up with pretty consistent answers. I never did see how insectoid beings could easily become Man's best friend, and this book delved into this.
