Norstrilia - Cordwainer Smith

First edition: Ballantine paperback, 1975. Cover by Gray Morrow. This edition: NESFA Press, 249 pages, hardcover. Cover by John Berkey.

A kid had bought Earth, and it was his. Legally he had the right to pump up the Sunset Ocean, shoot it into space and sell water all over the inhabited galaxy.

He didn't.

He wanted something else.

The Earth Authorities thought it was girls, so they tried to throw girls at him off all shapes, sizes and ages – all the way from young ladies of good family down to dog-derived undergirl who smelled of romance all the time.

But he didn't want girls... He wanted postage stamps.
