A Van Vogt Omnibus
Omnibus 1967 170,000 words
  • Since none of the novels in this omnibus had appeared as British editions prior to 1967, my guess is that the plates from American editions were used. (The only page-counts that match are the Book Company of America edition of Planets for Sale, the Macfadden edition of The Beast, and the Paperback Library edition of The Book of Ptath.) How Sidgwick & Jackson came by these plates is something of a mystery. If anybody is able to provide any further information about this omnibus, please email me.
