Summary (From the publisher):



In a genetic future where man can create all the beasts of myth, a unicorn wanders onto a college campus, and brings to life all the mystic, haunting and terrifying legends of old.


Beneath the star-swirled, amber rings of Saturn, three space explorers find their mysterious, silent, ice-caverned world hypnotic, beautiful—and lethal.
