Publication history:


Eitel is a dealer in fine art. He makes a handsome living selling paintings and sculptures to wealthy aliens. The catch is that it's illegal. After all, Earth has only so many Leonardos, and when they're all sold off-world, what do we have left? As a further complication, in addition to being a connoisseur of artworks, Eitel is a connoisseur of fine women, which leads a simple deal with a Centauran for an obscure painting into places he never would have imagined.
