Here's what I said about the hardcover edition:
'Real-Time World' was the first collection of Chris Priest stories. It was issued in 1974 as a hardcover by NEL, followed by a paperback from the same firm and has been out of print for at least thirty years. Scarce even in paperback, it's a really rare book in hardback (every copy I've ever seen - and I've only seen a few after decades of collecting Priest -is in a hell of a state). Therefore, this hardcover reissue, which features all the original contents including the introduction plus a new updated essay from the author, is very welcome indeed.
These are the early Priest SF stories that made print in various magazines (the companion volume, 'Ersatz Wines', also from Grim Grin Studios, features mostly previously unpublished stories). Some are admittedly the work of a writer finding his voice and place in the world of late sixties-early seventies British New Wave SF, but most are important in allowing devotees an insight into the emergent career of one of Britain's most gifted and original writers.Read more ›
