Signet December 1985 first printing paperback (hardcover came out earlier the same year from Phantasia Press.) Cover by Kevin Eugene Johnson, 252 pages, $2.95 cover price. Condition is Fine (-): tight and very square with flat spine; age tanning is mild and uniform. A clean copy that looks new/unread. Stamp on first page and page 85 - from the reserves of a defunct SF library; extra stamps on top, side & bottom page blocks (that's why I downgrade from "Fine" to "Fine minus.")
Eros Descending, third in the "Tales of the Velvet Comet" series by Mike Resnick, well-known SF Fan and prolific author. After his first 3 novels in the late Sixties, Resnick wrote a couple-hundred (!) non-SF books under various names, then came back to SF in the Eighties, and has more than 70 SF books since then.
