The Stars My Destination!
Ah, good old Alfie Bester at his best. With this novel, and his previous ("The Demolished Man") he showed a lot of the old hands of the 1930's and 40's that science fiction writing could be more post-modern, more experimental and less... well - "uptight". Strangely enough, the novel was re-titled "Tiger, Tiger" for it's British publication... go figure!
These illustrations by Emsh are pretty amazing too!
