Essentially, this could be classified as a hybrid printing, with the cover, according to a text on the back cover, being printed in the USA, and the contents printed in Canada. However, as we have no evidence of the existence of a genuine American printing, for now, we presume this is actually the only existing Twenty-first Printing.
The Trail of Vengeange
Kuurus was one of the dread caste of assassins on the hidden world of Counter-Earth. He was hired for twenty pieces of gold to avenge the death of a warrior. Now he was on his way to the great city of Ar, where he was forbidden by ancient sentence of death ever to appear again.
He knew nothing of his intended victim, save that the man had taken part in the savage tarn races of the Arena of Ar. And all he knew of the man he was to avenge was a name.
The name was that of Tarl Cabot, the great warrior and servant of the all-powerfull Priest-Kings. And that was strange.
Because the true name of Kuurus was Tarl Cabot!
