The Syndic (Vintage paperback, Offutt's copy, 1955)


New York: Bantam Books, 1955. 1317 (1317/7 on spine), 25c cover price, 144pp. First printing of the first paperback edition. From the estate of Andrew J. Offutt, with his stamp "AJoffutt" on the title page, and brief notations throughout in holograph ink. Offutt was an avid science fiction author noted for "Conan"-themed fantasies, debuted as a published writer in 1951, and wrote 100s of erotic novels pseudonymously as John Cleve, Turk Winter, John Denis, Jeff Moorehead, Opal Andrews, among others. The "Spaceways" series is perhaps his ultimate collaboration between science fiction and erotica. Most institutions without personal material. Very Good Plus, toning, lean, light rubbing and foxing.
