"They were a strange trinity - and they could spell death for the world."
An omnivore, a vegetarian, and a vampire are stranded on an alien world where the dominant species are cannibalistic fungi. The 18 scientists who were with them are dead or disappeared. A mysterious stranger appears. This Piers Anthony's second novel, and the first in his "Of Man and Manta" trilogy, and it's a doozy. This is the true first edition.
