great story, poor presentation,
By A Customer
This review is from: "Repent, Harlequin!", Said the Ticktockman (Hardcover)
I have loved this short story ever since I first read it about 10 years ago. Notice I said SHORT story - yet here it is blown up into an oversize hardcover with several very poor illustrations and presented to fans for a $17 cover price. Who would shell out the money for this? I'll give you two alternatives to buying this book: either look for the Alex Nino-illustrated adaptation in Marvel Comics' "Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction", or scan [...] for the story in its original collection, "Paingod and Other Delusions", which, even though rare and a bit pricey, will still cost less than this particular book (and includes other stories).
