Edited By Van Densen,W.L.T. And Morris,M.J.
A spin-off from the damming of rivers to generate power should be increased fish production in the new reservoir habitat thus created. But the native fish fauna of Southeast Asia is predominantly riverine, with few species adapted to living in still, open water. In contrast, Africa has many such species and long established experience of lake fisheries. This book brings together a wide spectrum of scattered and previously unpublished information which will be invaluable to the interchange of information on the management of tropical freshwater fisheries in both continents.432pp.N.B.TWO SMALL CLOSED TEARS TO TOP EDGE FRONT D/J.

De Saint Jorre, John
Slight bump to bottom of spine and d/j. This book tells the story of the Olympia Press and of Maurice Girodias, "Pornographer with heart", "Lenin of the Sexual Revolution" and publisher of books of exceptional quality which no-one else dared to handle. Titles such as: Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" and "Tropic of Capricorn"; Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita"; William Burrough's "THe Naked Lunch"; J.P. Donleavy"s "The Ginger Man"; and Terry Southern's "Candy". The text also includes an interview with the pseudonymous author of the clandestine bestseller, "The Story of Q". The fact that almost all of these publications led to flamboyant disputes, public rows, legal actions and literary feuds of unparalleled ferocity, only testifies to the fascination of Girodias's escapades. This account reveals an extraordinary egoist and a world on the point of change towards the sexual liberation of the 60s.332pp.

Edited By Anders, Lou
Science Fiction is the genre that looks at the implications of technology on society, which in this age of exponential technological growth makes it the most relevant branch of literature going. This is only the start, and the close of the 21st century will look absolutely nothing like its inception. It has been said that science fiction is an ongoing dialogue about the future, and the front line of that dialogue is the short story. The field has a long history of producing famous anthologies to showcase its distinguished short fiction, but it has been several years since there has been a prestigious all-original science fiction anthology series. "Fast Forward" is offered in the tradition of Damon Knight's prestigious and influential anthology series, "Orbit", and Frederik Pohl's landmark "Star SF". "Fast Forward" marks the start of a new hard science fiction anthology series, dedicated to presenting the vanguard of the genre and charting the undiscovered country that is the future. 409pp.
