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 but overall tight and clean and very good condition in a very near fine unmarked dustjacket. A reasonably presentable copy of an uncommon book.
