A SHORT SHARP SHOCK Kim Stanley Robinson 1st HC

A SHORT SHARP SHOCK by Kim Stanley Robinson. Shingletown, CA; Mark V. Ziesing; 1990. 1st edition hardcover. A man finds himself washed up on a strange shore with no memory of his past. He encounters both friend and foe, while discovering a path to deeper humanity and the real meaning of home. Like some of Philip K. Dick's work, this novella leaves the reader with a sense that all is not as it seems. But I don't know that I'd go as far as the dust jacket and say: "Incorporating erotic symbolism fraught with quasi- Freudian overtones and social contrivances invested with Jungian implications, Robinson has created a modern mythological playground."

Fine in fine dj.
