BOVA, Ben. Kinsman. New York : The Dial Press, James Wade, 1979. Uncorrected Proof. Pp. (6),1-. Tall 8vo, pritned red card covers with black lettering to front and spine. Ben Bova, b. November 8, 1932, Philadelphia. "To Chet Kinsman, space held the promise of peace and beauty that Earth denied him -- yet it was Kinsman who stained the purity of space with murder. His atonement shaped his life and the destiny of his planet -- and drew him inexorably to use, and finally betray, those closest to him. Preceding the widely acclaimed 'Millennium' in the author's gripping chronicle of the next quarter century, 'Kinsman' shows the eventful, expanding space program from today's space shuttle to the first permanent moon base, through the eyes ofits dedicated -- and driven -- hero. Drawn from today's and tomorrow's headlines, it is a vivid picture of what the future will mean in human terms." - from the introductory preamble. Nick to head of front outer hinge, else very good. Signed and inscribed by Bova on the half-title. 30.00
