    Description

    Who Goes There? First Edition (Shasta Publishers, 1947). John W. Campbell, Jr. signed this first edition on the first blank page. This book was the basis for the 1950s movie, "The Thing From Another World," and John Carpenter's "The Thing." It has incredible Hannes Bok artwork on the dust jacket which shows some wear, but is intact. The book is almost perfect, with only minor wear. On the signed page, there are some other notes and figures written by someone else. John W. Campbell, Jr. was one of the leading science-fiction writers of the day, and he ran the pulp magazine Astounding science-fiction for decades, and gave many of the writers of the Golden Age their first break, including Robert A. Heinlein.
