Nero's Mistress

Los Angeles: Brandon House Library Edition 6057, 1969. First Edition, first printing, a paperback original. Brandon House file copy, with a blindstamp to the front wrapper. An ancient tale of lust and warriors, set in Rome. From the author's estate.

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. Moderate rubbing overall, slight discoloration at the tips.
