1 Koontz, Dean R. Nightmare Journey
New York Berkley / Putnam's 1975 0399113886 / 9780399113888 First Edition Hard Cover 
[1975]. Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full red cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 217pps. There is mild rubbing and bumping to the lower tips and to the heel of the spine, a very slight lean to the spine, and the pages (as is common with this title) are faintly tanned. Otherwise clean and soundly bound. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has modest wear at the extremities, including a small, closed tear at the upper rear tip; the original price (6.95) is intact. A nice copy of this uncommon, earlier Koontz -- and one of his first titles in hardcover. The author's last pure science-fiction novel. ".One hundred thousand years in the future -- mankind long ago made its first interstellar flights, encountered alien races, and discovered that its own place in the hierarchy of intelligent beings is about where the goldfish ranks on earth. Unable to cope with this clear inferiority, stunned into paralysis by culture shock, man pulled back to his own planet and applied what little spirit of experimentation he retained to bizarre self-altering genetic stunts. Racial self-disgust led to wars and finally to a colossal holocaust, from which man has spent dozens of centuries stumbling back toward some sort of civilization. The earth is now inhabited by the weird descendents of the genetic experimenters -- some scaled, some furred, some huge, some tiny, some four-legged, some winged -- and by Pures, of the original human genetic code. And into the world are being born with increasing frequency men with telepathic powers -- who are hunted down and killed summarily, out of superstitious terror. Jask, a Pure, and Tedesco, a great bear with a human brain, the product of an ancient experimentation, are telepaths thrown together (to the horror of both) in a flight for their lives that becomes a quest for the secret of the Black Presence -- which may be the key to mankind's place in the cosmos."
