"In Durance Vile: A Reprehensible Tale" is another of Susan Matthews' delightful stories about Thera, the pantherix Temple dancer. Graced with superb Martynn illos, this tale (tail?) of the lovely catdancer involves a daring prison rescue, a most unusual form of... torture, and Raker-the-Blade, one of the most delightful created characters since Thera herself. Although the Thera stories can be fit into mainline SWARS, I think Susan thinks of them as belonging to an alternate timeline.
