 reference copy provided by courtesy of tony at the old pier bookshop, morecambe seafront.

author's real name appears to be/have been william j. lambert.

american art enterprises, inc. seems to've specialised primarily in publishing heavy porn mmpbs distributed through the "independent" merkin news wholesalers, for which coherent and believable characterisation, credible plot development, etc. would not appear to've been a prime consideration.

18th Sep 2018
 Rated 1/10
barely above basic literacy in some ways, though with an interesting vocabulary.
a ham-fisted attempt at heroic fantasy with, or possibly within, a master computer.

really deserves a "0" or a negative rating, save perhaps for turkey-readings to raise money for conventions' charities.

carcass of book patchily/inconsistently inked/over-inked/(mostly) under-inked, making reading the thing - or attempting to - even more of a chore.

avoid, unless collecting turkeys (see above).
