Amis, Martin. Invasion of the Space Invaders. An Addict's Guide to Battle Tactics, Big Scores and the Best Machines. London: Hutchinson, 1982. First Edition. 4to. original printed paper wraps (a little rubbed & creased, some spotting inside covers, else clean & bright); pp.128, with illustrations. A very good copy of an uncommon work by the late English novelist and essayist. Written concurrently with his major novel 'Money', and seemingly at odds with the rest of his literary output, this non-fiction work is both an enthusiastic survey and critique of 1970s/1980s arcade game culture.
