On a distant planet in the distant future…When all the galaxies are colonised… John Craig, a young space diplomat, is captured by interplanetary pirates and sold into slavery. On Kossr, where boredom and absolute power have driven the rulers to a special kind of madness, Craig is auctioned off to the exquisite Lady Morgan Sidney, a beautiful, sensual woman. He soon makes his way from the hellish slave mines into her bed in the tower of her castle. And it is here, under the strange castle, that he finds the secret that may bring about the end of man in the galaxy. Cover art by Larry Kresek. ADVISORY: The author was the father of the former U.S. Attorney General William Barr and was headmaster of Manhattan’s Dalton School from 1964-74. It seemed he preferred to write rather than teach and just before his tenure ended, Jeffrey Epstein became a maths and science teacher there. The novel, first published in 1973,  references a strange mineral called Weinsteinite…draw your own conclusions, Dear Reader.
