Amazon doesn't carry it anymore. You aren't likely to find it at your local bookstore. And WorldCat tells me that only three libraries worldwide hold it. Meaning the only option is pretty much an InterLibrary Loan service...

Michael John Harrison was born in Rugby, Warwickshire in 1945 and now lives in London.
Harrison is stylistically an Imagist and his early work relies heavily on the use of strange juxtapositions characteristic of absurdism.
