SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Nov. 1, 1994

"A story packed with Mages and devoid of magic."
Rawn (Skybowl, 1993, etc.) makes a strong bid to establish herself as the Rube Goldberg of fantasy as she embellishes her account of revolution on the planet Lenfell with an excess of explication, minor characters, and details (some explored in an ``index'' too spotty to be useful) that ensure the plot mechanism never gets out of first gear.
