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 plus in illustrated wrappers. Light foxing, rubbing, and creasing. Scarce.
