It was originally published in 1986 by Gourimpest Press. It was available from the author in five sets of stapled papers and sent for the cost of the stamp. It contained no art.

The second edition, published in 1996, contains 46,900-words (60 pages), is illustrated by Whitby27, has a cover by Kathryn Andersen, and edited by Judith Proctor. There is a slight change to the author's name: xBryn Lantry.

Summary

It's based on events immediately before and after Gauda Prime. The plot is complicated. Servalan is there of course, but almost everybody in this story is working for somebody else, most people are double-crossing at least one other person, and half of them are lying about what they are doing anyway. Events revolve around Avon. After thinking that he'd killed Blake, he is faced in fairly rapid succession with Blake, Blake's clone, and his own brother. A positive embarassment of riches. Where do Avon's loyalties lie? Does Avon know what he wants himself? ... This edition is heavily revised from the original version published many years ago in Australia. xBryn's made a lot of changes to the text and it's been edited by yours truly." [1]
