Hasford, Gustav
The Phantom Blooper: A Novel of Vietnam.
Bantam Books, New York, 1990. First edition of the author's sequel to The Short-Timers, basis for the film Full Metal Jacket. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper with a full page inscription in the year of publication, "Gustav Hasford For My good friends Jeff and Jacquie from Uncle Gus San Diego March, 1990." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Cover art by Dru Blair. The sequel to The Short-Timers, The Phantom Blooper: A Novel of Vietnam was intended to be the second of a "Vietnam Trilogy", but Hasford died before writing the third installment. The sequel made less of an impact than The Short-Timers, but was, nonetheless, highly regarded by reviewers. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
