Stefin-Dae, a willful young hero, sells himself into slavery on a planet where the red dust kills. He escapes into a series of imaginative, drug-inspired adventures. Perhaps because his current companion is novelist-poet Erica Jong, Fast was inspired to include a lot of light, humorous sex—an ingredient rarely found in sci-fi novels. (Signet, $1.50)
