25950 FURTHEST Fair
By Suzette Haden Elgin
Cover by Leo & Diane Dillon
Coyote Jones, agent for the Tri-Galactic Intelligence Service, had been sent to a planet so unimaginably distant from the rest of the Federation that it bore the descriptive name Furthest. His mission: to find out why the total body of data about Furthest showed the world's inhabitants to be absolutely average down to the last decimal place. That data had to be false!
Jones was permitted to live on the planet, but the natives were so wary of him that he could uncover nothing - until he chanced into a personal crisis faced by his young Furthester assistant. The boy's sister had been sentenced to erasure, and he wanted Coyote to take in the fugitive girl and hide her.
Against his judgment, Jones agreed, and thereby became a criminal on a world he didn't understand.
That was bad enough. But when the answers began to come, the situation became worse than he could have imagined!
First Edition, 1971. Sorry, but this one's not much above a reading copy. Lots of dirt visible on cover, expecially along the edges. Spine has two creases. Pages are lightly browned. Binding is broken at both creases.
