      Another gem from Janice Holt Giles - don't let that truly awful cover art fool you! She originally had to release it under the pseudonym of John Garth, due to the sexual themes in the story - which are quite interesting by the way, and very tame by modern standards. The character of Rady is so well done, Giles presents him to the reader in all his ambitious, charming, and scandalous glory - with no apologies.
