New York: Ballantine Books, 1974.
First Edition. Paperback. Signed by Suzy McKee Charnas to title page. Stated first printing. 7" X 4 1/4". 214pp. Mild wear to color pictorial wraps featuring the art of Gene Szafran (1941-2011), with small tears to head and tail of spine, bumping and rubbing to extremities, and faint crease to rear. All edges yellow. Binding is firm, tight, and sound, with no creasing to spine. Pages are clean and unmarked. A solid and overall well-preserved first printing, signed by the late Hugo and Nebula Award-winning writer Suzy McKee Charnas (1939–2023), of her first published book and the first volume of The Holdfast Chronicles, Walk to the End of the World. This important work of the feminist and queer science fiction of the 1970s introduces readers to a post-nuclear-apocalyptic dystopia where men and the "fems" they blame for the end of the world live in strange, sometimes separate societies. Very good. Item #12760
