First edition bound in blue cloth with gold spine lettering. A Nearly fine copy in dust jacket. Book is stamped "This Book was Warehouse Damaged and is Now Being Sold at a Special Price" on the title page. Outside of light toning to the page margins I can see no other 'warehouse' damage. Dj shows a touch of shelf wear to the edges(maybe the damage?). Stories by Ian Rankin, Day Keene and others.
