New York: Ballantine Books, 1977, 1979.
Paperback. 7" X 4 1/4"; 6 7/8" X 4 1/4". 214pp, 246pp. Mild wear to color pictorial wraps featuring the art of Gene Szafran (1941-2011) and others, with bumping and rubbing to extremities and faint creases to spines. Bindings are firm, tight, and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. A solid and overall well-preserved pair of early printings of the first two published books, and the first two books in her Holdfast Chronicles, by the late Hugo and Nebula Award-winning writer Suzy McKee Charnas (1939–2023). 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 #13662
