"No one paid much attention to Q Colony, one of the less significant planets in the Trisystem. Until an enterprising archaeologist discovered the Stoner journals. Pieced together from fragments of Henry Stoner's diaries, they tell the story of the first human expedition of Q, headed by Dominique LaPointe, explorer-turned-ruler with an insatiable thirst for power. They tell the story of the Oonaas, the outwardly passive inhabitants of Q, whose bodies gave men undreamt-of pleasures - and spelled their doom. Not one among them survived to tell the tale of lust and horror. . . "; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
