About the author:
STEPHEN GOLDIN was born in Philadelphia in 1947 and has lived in California since 1960. He received a Bachelor's degree in Astronomy from UCLA and worked as a civilian space scientist for the U.S. Navy for a few years after leaving college, but has made his living as a writer/editor most of his life.
He served the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for close to three years as editor of the SFWA Bulletin, and another three years as the organization's Western Regional Director. He has lived with cats all his adult life. Artistically, he enjoys Broadway musicals and surrealist art.
MARY MASON was born in Bakersfield and has lived in California all her life. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from CSU Sacramento, and has worked counseling abused children. Her first husband was a member of "Hell Bent For Glory," a pre-Hell's Angels motorcycle gang, but she made the bikers check their weapons at the door and wash her dishes, in exchange for her fine cooking. Her philosophy regarding martial arts is, "My black belt beats your black belt, because my black belt's in Smith & Wesson." She is also a sound lady, mixing live music for bands--usually Chicago blues and S.F. rock, but also swing, folk, and both Country and Western.
She has run several Nebula Award banquets for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America as well as science fiction conventions, and founded the 1993 San Francisco WorldCon bid. In 2012 she co-authored Throwing Lead: A Writer's Guide to Firearms (and the People Who Use Them) with J. Daniel Sawyer.
Jade Darcy and the Affair of Honor
The Rehumanization of Jade Darcy
Stephen Goldin, Mary Mason
For the past five years, Jade Darcy has not seen another human being. A computer-augmented mercenary, she lives on the planet Cablans, a stopover point for traders from hundreds of worlds--and a good place to meet customers who
need the services of a skilled warrior.
She turns down what she considers a suicide assignment: traveling to an enslaved world to assassinate one of its military leaders. But then she learns there's another human being on Cablans--a human being with the potential to
expose Jade's mysterious past, with possibly fatal results.
All of a sudden, a suicide mission looks positively appetizing....
