The first novel by the writer described by Ronald Bryden as "the most exasperatingly gifted writer in England". Hyams was a translator and author, active in various genres, fiction and non-fiction, from before World War Two. Although not widely known for his speculative work, he published several novels of Sci-Fi interest. The Wings of the Morning is a discussion novel in the style of the scientific romance set as a future war novel whose description does not very accurately anticipate the reality to come. This was his first novel written when he was 28 years old. Rare. No copies of any kind for sale at time of listing.
First edition. 8vo. Advertisements. Original blue cloth ruled in black. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 7s.
A very good early dust-jacket, uncommon thus. This collection of tale comes from the pen of Scottish author Gerald Grogan, author of the sci-fi novel A Drop in Infinity (1915); the author was killed in the First World War, in 1918.
