The Dreaming Jewels
NY, Greenberg/Corwin, (1950). The first novel by this science fiction writer who was an influence on the New Wave of young science fiction writers of the 1960s, and was admired by such writers as William Burroughs and Kurt Vonnegut. Sturgeon's second novel, More Than Human, posited a change in consciousness as the next step in the evolution of human beings, an idea that fit well with the drug experimentation among the counterculture of the Sixties. Inscribed by the author in 1975, with "my warmest regards." Slight sunning to board edges and tanning to endpages; near fine in a near fine, lightly rubbed dust jacket. With reader response card laid in. [#032325] SOLD
