Both plans will bring terror to the world - and both are threatened by the very existence of Eric Banyon.

Rosemary Edghill (born 1956) is an American writer and editor, who has often used that pseudonym in place of her legal name, Eluki bes Shahar. Her primary genres are science fiction and fantasy, but she began by writing Regency romances.
The publishers of her first novel, the Regency Romance Turkish Delight, suggested that "eluki bes shahar" sounded insufficiently English to attract potential readers, and thus she has published the majority of her novel-length works under the pseudonym. Her sister writes as India Edghill.
