COVER TEXT:
After 800 years of exploring the stars, Space Commander Stagg had returned to Earth. But Earth had become a new world. Where science and technology had reigned, now there were agriculture and tribal warfare. And mankind worshiped the Goddess and was content.
Into this New Earth came Peter Stagg. They named him "Sunhero" and worshipped him acoordingly. The secret rites were performed, and Stagg found himself setting out on a cross-country, orgiastic jaunt, with foot-high antlers throbbing on his head and endowed with the virility of a nation.
Yes, Space Commander Peter Stagg was the Sunhero, king of the Earth and all its willing women. But how long he would hold his throne, only the Goddess could say....

This Canadian edition has the same data as the 5th US printing. It states to have been printed in Canada by the New American Library of Canada Limited. This edition actually is the third Canadian printing, as is stated by number line. It maybe should have said '5th', like the US edition, or '6th', as this one is counted by the publisher, because there are now three 'third printings'.
