Reissues the 1953 Abelard-Schuman edition. On both the front cover and spine the title is two words, but on the first end paper, the title page and copyright page it's just one. After being held responsible for the deaths of thirty-two people when his spaceship crashes, a man is exiled to the fungus fields of Venus, where the only way he can clear himself is to become a peddler of a poison more horrible than death itself. Cover illustration by Bill Rose. A hint of slant, previous owner's stamp on title page, small/faint glue stains on insides of both covers (possibly something was glued there by a previous owner -- a minor blemish), light edgewear. Internally tight and clean.
