Brian Duffy - soldier of fortune - meets Merlin, the Lady of the Lake and . . . Powers. A clever and imaginative integration of Arthurian folklore. To the author's credit, he really gutted it out with this one, virtually re-writing the book from start to finish under the auspices of editor Lester Del Rey with no promise of acceptance. Del Rey did of course buy the book to which Power's noted - "Lester Del Rey was one of the great editors." A bright fresh copy with plenty of cover sheen; slight rack-crease on rear cover.
