Abstract:

"Art critics are notoriously inhuman--and on Donov may of them were physically inhuman as well. Donov was a planet devoted to the arts. People came from all over the galaxy to attend its galleries and meet its artists. And many of the the best artists were not human either. But when a rising tide of anti-alien pogroms and riots began zeroing in on Donov from outer space, it became clear that there was a plot afoot that had nothing to do with art criticism. It had to do with planetary genocide"--Page 4 of cover.
