First UK edition, first print hardback of DECISION AT DOONA, by Anne McCaffrey and published by Rapp & Whiting Ltd., London, 1970. Jacket design by Lawrence Edwards.

The book is in very good condition (Clean orange cloth boards with silver lettering on the spine) with slight wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing and rubbing to the edges mainly around the spine and at the back and corners, a one centimeter closed tear to the bottom edge and small chipping to the bottom corners at the back, slight line markings at the back which are only visible under the light). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is the very slightest spinal lean.

Anne Inez McCaffrey (1926 – 2011) was an American-born Irish writer, best known for her 'Dragonriders of Pern' series. Over the course of her 46 year career she won a Hugo Award and a Nebula Award. Her book The White Dragon became one of the first science fiction novels ever to land on the New York Times Best Seller List. McCaffrey's first novel was Restoree, published by Ballantine Books in 1967. Unlike most science fiction books of the era, Restoree's heroine is a strong willed, intelligent woman who is willing and able to think for herself and act on her own initiative. McCaffrey was widely quoted as saying that Restoree was intended as a "jab" at how women were usually portrayed in science fiction. Decision at Doona was Anne McCaffrey's third book and the first book of the Doona Series, more than twenty years later when McCaffrey and Jody Lynn Nye wrote two sequels together Crisis on Doona (1992) and Treaty at Doona (1994). This first UK edition Decision at Doona published by Rapp & Whiting was its only hardcover edition.

"Anne McCaffrey was one of the leading contemporary Science Fiction writers. Her first novel Restoree was excitingly different, while the second novel Dragonflight with its marvellously imaginative symbiosis of man and dragon won two major prizes and has delighted readers of all types and ages.

In Decision at Doona, still emphasising her versatility, Anne McCaffrey describes a future overpopulated earth in which the only - slim - hope is to be sent to one of the newly discovered colony worlds. But after one catastrophe when attempts had been made to populate a planet with an indigenous life form the regulations forbade, completely and utterly, any landing on an aliens' planet or any meeting by colonists with non-humans.

Out of the billions stacked in the warrens of Earth came a shipload of new colonials, free at last to make a world of their choice, free to let their kids run and shout. Doona was the new home of these rebellious colonials - only rebels went - and what did they do when confronted with regulations unwittingly broken? What was to be their decision?"

245 pages.
