An Evil Guest
by Gene Wolfe
Set a hundred years in the future, An Evil Guest is a story of an actress who becomes the lover of both a mysterious sorcerer/private detective, and an even more mysterious and powerful rich man, who was once United States Ambassador to on an alien planet, where he learned strange things and valuable skills. Her loyalties are divided--perhaps she loves them both. The detective helps her to release her inner beauty and become a star overnight. The rich man bankrolls a play she stars in. But something is very wrong. Money can be an evil guest, but there are other evils. As Lovecraft said, "That is not dead which can eternal lie."
