       Additional Information  
      A ship-wrecked space sailor is rescued by the oxygen-deprived inhabitants of a distant solar system. They treat him like royalty, but he soon realizes there is something fishy about Leffingwellians besides their appearance: Their culture is identical to that of Earth's two centuries earlier except for a peculiar state religion dedicated to a romance-novel goddess.

    An attractive geophysicist uses his romantic interest to have him kidnapped by a band of revolutionaries, part of a planet-wide movement dedicated to overthrowing the Leffingwellian establishment, a color-coded society strangely like the old Earth-s. He escapes into a surreal wilderness, is rescued by a blue-green siren, and in the midst of civil war unravels the mystery of the goddess Leffingwell and her planet-s bizarre and forbidding fate.
