From the authorized Star Trek biographer who gave Uhura her official first name (Nyota, Swahili for "star") comes this tale of a future ruled by religious extremism – and saved by the heroism of a noble hedonist:

"A fine swashbuckling story, and a rich, robust peek into our crazy future, told in clean, vigorous prose."
—Robert Silverberg

Blake Mason had it all…fame, fortune, and women. As an architect he was without equal; the exotic environments he created pulsated with sublime eroticism. But in this world of abundant free sex, Blake Mason craved true love.

Then he found it—with the one woman he could never have. Rio was the lover of mad multibillionare Jean-Michel Voss. They met when Voss came to Blake with a strange request: design a sensuous tomb in which to live, in which to love—and in which to die. What Voss left out was the supposed tomb’s real purpose.

Blake didn’t care about Voss or his secrets. All he cared about was Rio.

And all Rio cared about was Blake—and the debt she owed Voss: a debt that meant she and Blake could have a few mad nights together, after which they would be separated for eternity.

But Blake was willing to sentence himself to an eternity of unknown hells to be with her...

Introductory price: $2.99

Born in 1926, William Charles Rotsler was truly a renaissance man: acclaimed novelist and short story writer, photographer and filmmaker, much-admired artist and illustrator and – how he is perhaps best remembered – and as a warm and special part of science fiction fandom.  Star Trek fans particularly owe Rotsler a debt for giving Lt. Uhura the first name of Nyota.

Rotsler had a hand in locating the fossils, crystals and stones for the Nebula Award trophies as well as receiving Hugo awards for his cartoon work that appeared in fanzines, convention program books, and magazines such as Locus. To honor Rotsler, The Southern California Institute for Fan Interests created the William Rotsler Art Award in 1998.  William Rotsler died in southern California in 1997.
