Gunner Cade by Cyril Judd 1st / 1st 1964


First UK edition and first print published by Gollancz in 1964. This is a near fine copy. The bright and complete Gollancz wrapper is very clean. The wrapper has no chips or tears. The spine is a shade sunned. The book is square and sharp with no foxing or previous owner's ink. Overall a lovely near fine copy. 


Cyril Judd was a joint pseudonym used by American writers Cyril M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril. Gunner Cade is a science fiction novel, originally serialized in Astounding Science Fiction in 1952. The novel deals with the transformation of Cade, the title character, from a loyal member of the elite police force of an authoritarian interplanetary regime into an individualistic rebel. Kornbluth and Merril crafted the novel to appeal to Astounding SF editor John W. Campbell, using Fritz Leiber's Gather, Darkness! as their model. A scarce UK first edition.
