"Jon-Joras came to Earth to oversee arrangements for a dragon hunt to amuse his king. The dragons, brought to Earth centuries earlier as pets of an alien race, were powerful but slow-witted...until now. Jon-Joras finds himself caught in the middle of an uprising that could shake the powers of the galaxy. Avram Davidson’s classic is reprieved in this attractive package. Introduction by the formidable Harlan Ellison."
