LOGAN’S RUN . . . A Novel by WILLIAM F. NOLAN & GEORGE CLAYTON JOHNSON . . . Conceive of a time, hundreds of years from now, when America is a technological Utopia. Society is led by a computer system known as The Thinker . . . Multi-level chrome and glass cities provide their residents with neighborhood LSD parlors. Sex is unlimited and marriage is nonexistent. But there is a catch: No one is allowed to live past the age of 21 . . . As a person is born in one of the State nurseries, a crystal disk is imbedded in his palm. At the end of his twenty-first year of life the disk turns black. He must then give himself up for death, despite the advertised joys of Deep Sleep, the person whose disk has turned black refuses to submit and chooses to remain alive as an outcast. He becomes a ‘runner’ -- the prey of a special cadre of superpolice called Sandmen, who will trace him down and destroy him in the most agonizing way possible. For running is the greatest of sins . . . Here is the story of the run of one man, Logan, a Sandman whose flower has blackened. Follow Logan through the steamy jungles of Washington, D.C., down the ocean’s floor to an underwater city, through the Arctic wasteland of Hell. Go with Logan and his alluring companion, Jessica, as they flee The Thinker and the pursuing Sandmen on their heroic quest for Sanctuary. Read LOGAN’S RUN -- the most daring and disturbing projection ever made of the cult of youth in the United States . . .
From the rear flap of the dust jacket: “ . . . WILLIAM F. NOLAN and GEORGE CLAYTON JOHNSON are two gifted West Coast writers who have combined their talents to create this alarming and completely logical phantasmagoria of today’s population crisis . . . grade books and dust jackets: fine, near fine, very good, good, fair, and poor. I describe all faults. If you sell books on (or anywhere else), it is de rigueur not to list 1st printings of book club books as 1st editions (unless they ARE the 1st edition, which occurs only occasionally); also, a 1st edition, 7th printing, is not a 1st edition. Ex-library books must be noted as such since generally they are of little value to the collector of 1st editions. Condition is also very important to those collectors. Books and dust jackets must be described in detail. In other words, it is incumbent upon the SELLER to know what is and is not a 1st edition. Mistakes can be made (and corrected), of course, but if you DON'T KNOW, don't try to sell a book as a 1st NEAR FINE (or slightly better) book in a NEAR FINE (or slightly better) dust jacket. The book is tight and square in its bright red boards binding with black lettering on the spine of the book. The book has the correct black endpapers. There is no writing in the book; no bookplates; no remainder marks. There is very small “smudge” 2/3 of the way up the front board; unobtrusive. The dust jacket is not price-clipped and shows the correct 1st issue price of $3.95. The dust jacket has undergone a very minor amount of restoration which has been accomplished by a professional paper conservationist. The restoration exists in three small places, including the lower edge of the spine panel of the dust jacket. The restoration is not visible when looking at the outside of the dust jacket. The front panel and the spine panel of the dust jacket are outwardly in FINE condition.Famous, iconic, and fantastic full wraparound dust jacket artwork by Mercer Mayer.This is a much nicer copy of LOGAN’S RUN than is usually encountered; a collector’s copy. At the time of this listing, this is clearly the nicest 1st edition copy of LOGAN'S RUN currently available for sale on . This is the only copy that has the original dust jacket. I don't usually "say" this, but if you want the nicest copy of LOGAN'S RUN for your collection, here it is.A MUST FOR THE COLLECTOR OF HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT SCIENCE FICTION 1st EDITIONS AND/OR THE COLLECTOR OF SCIENCE FICTION 1st EDITIONS MADE INTO FAMOUS FILMS AND/OR THE COLLECTOR OF WILLIAM F. NOLAN AND GEORGE CLAYTON JOHNSON 1st photographs are available upon request.I am continuing to list some of my best books (especially science fiction, fantasy, and horror 1st editions) on not so much as sales (due to the fact that charges quite a bit to list items for reserve sales), but more along the lines of listing my "catalogue" of books that I have for sale. I'm not going to "give" these books away, but my opening offers and Buy-It-Now prices are usually a fair amount below market value. Furthermore, however, for certain scarce books in great condition, I do expect to get close to what they're worth.
