Coronet paperback, second impression, 1974. Cover painting by
Chris Foss.

"The twenty-first century is drawing to an end. Earth's social structure has undergone a complete reversal - women dominate society and men have been reduced to the status of manipulated objects. Into this changed world comes Dion Quern, a self-styled troubadour who refuses to conform to the social norm. But he discovers that women are superior to men in both bodily strength and number. And how can one man hope to change a whole society?"

Have never seen this Chris Foss before, and I really like it. He and Elson were exceptional on the mechanical front, but far weaker with figure drawing.. but I do like the inclusion of the figure in this piece. Better defines the scale, and space. Really like this piece.
