    This scene was used on the cover of Andrew J. Offutt and Richard K. Lyon's novel, The Demon in the Mirror, Pocket Books, 1978.

    "Tiana of Reme, illegitimate daughter of a murdered Duke and foster child of Caranga, the greatest of the Pirate captains, Bealost. But a captured Narokan merchantman -- and a severed hand -- take her to treacherous, alien lands. 'Not since Jirel of Joiry has there been a sword-wielding heroine like Tiana Highrider. For a long time, the field of sword-and-sorcery writing has been waiting for a swordswoman who can stand beside Conan, Brak, the Gray Mouser. It is good to know that this is only the first of what I hope will be many adventures to come.' -- Andre Norton."
