A first fiction sale it would appear, although you would need to be told that, as you wouldn’t guess it from reading the story. Not quite my cup of tea – a tale of ancient oriental intrigue, with an evil prince, wise ones, a cunning urchin, magic sword, and jade statues which can dispense wisdom, but certainly the plotting and writing were of a higher standard than many first stories.
