Product description

Hot Sleep: The Worthing Chronicle (1979) is a science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card set in the Worthing series. The book follows Jason Worthing, also known as Jazz, who is a boy growing up on Capitol, the capitol planet of the Empire. Jas has "the swipe", which is a genetic trait that allows for telepathy. The swipe is feared in the Empire, so those who possess it are executed. After being found out as a swipe, Jas tries to escape, which leads to his capture by Abner Doon, who helps him rise to prominence as a space pilot.

Very Good copy, cover and pages show some very minor wear from reading and storage.

Pages are clean and tight, though some minor foxing to pages edges at the front and back of the book. Small card dedicated 'to Adam' with author's signature included.
