A Degraded Heroine

New York: Bee-Line Book [Beeline] / Carlyle Communications, 1975. First Edition, first printing, a paperback original. Copy belonging to the author, Andrew J. Offutt, with his name (as Cleve) in manuscript ink, and his family's "Funny Farm" rubber-stamp, on the first page: "Collaboration: Cleve and Joe O." From the author's estate.

A Late Night Library title. Kinky flick actress begins to lose control in real life.

Offutt had gained some success writing adult novels in the 1960s and 1970s, using pseudonyms like John Cleve, Turk Winter, and Jeff Woods, and began to write legitimate science fiction and fantasy novels in the mid 1970s. He wrote and edited several fantasy series, including "Thieves' World" titles and "Swords Against Darkness." The "Spaceways" series (nineteen books, 1982-1984), along with his "Crusader" series published by Dell and Grove, bridges the gap between his two best literary genres: erotica and fantasy.

Very Good in photo illustrated wrappers. Light rubbing and creasing, spine moderately toned. Scarce.
