ARCHER'S GOON. by Jones, Diana Wynne.


Edition: First US printing.

New York: Greenwillow Books, 1984. dj. Hardcover first edition - Before Rowling and the Harry Potter books, Jones was the premier writer of children's fantasy in the UK with complex stories, often mixing humor in with the darkness. 'Archer's Goon' is, according to Clute and Nicholl's Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, her 'best sf novel, a splendidly convoluted mystery involving time paradoxes, alternate worlds, paranoia, writer's block and a cheerful thug.' Nominated for the best fantasy award, it was also serialized by the BBC in 1992. 241 pp. ISBN: 0-688-02582x.

Condition: Ex-library with only a few marking ('discard' stamped on endpapers, tape ghosts on boards, signs of pocket removal on rear endpaper, but no markings within the textblock itself) and overall tight and clean and very good condition in a very good - unmarked dj (1 small chip to upper edge of dj, other light edgewear.) A reasonably presentable copy of an uncommon book.
