Years ago, Nolly Stennis had been a promising baritone. On the threshold of a great career with Narabedla Ltd., illness had ruined his voice. Then a cellist friend received an offer from Narabedla, only to disappear shortly thereafter. When Nolly set out to investigate, he found intergalatic intrigue beyond imagination. Now Narabedla is determined to keep him quiet -- by making his greatest dreams come true . . .

From Publishers Weekly:
When he is shanghaied from Earth to the second moon of the seventh planet of the star Aldebaran, accountant Nolly Stennis loudly demands to be sent home. Then an alien surgeon repairs the damage of an adult case of the mumps, giving ex-opera singer Nolly back his voice and virility. Within days, alien impresarios send him on tour in Don Giovanni with other waylaid human singersto the applause of thousands. Somehow, his return doesn't seem so crucial anymore. Until, that is, his fellow abductees explain what's in store for those who don't cooperate. Pohl's vigorous narrative voice makes the brisk opening a grabber. In the slower middle section, he uses the reader's interest in his characters to once again pose a moral dilemma in vivid images, most memorably in the monstrous executioner who turns out to be Nolly's doctor.

From Library Journal:
When two performing artists die unexpectedly after accepting an offer for a worldwide tour, former singer Nolly Stennis follows a trail of coincidence and sinister occurrences to its source, a mysterious organization known as Narabedla Ltd., and embarks on a journey beyond his wildest dreams. Conspiracy theories and alien-race kidnappings get their comeuppance in sf veteran Pohl's latest novel. Recommended for sf collections. JC

Centigrade 233
(Ann Arbor, MI, U.S.A.)

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A satire set in the very distant future in which advanced alien civilizations with a taste for primitive cultures recruit people from Earth as entertainers. First British edition. No remainder mark, not price-clipped, not bumped. The title page and page 317 are dog-eared and there is some yellowing of the pages. The top of the dust jacket has some edge-wear and there is a tiny tear at the right top edge. The title on the spine seems a little sun faded. Overall though, a nice copy. Comes in an archival protective cover. All books are bubble-wrapped and placed in a sturdy shipping box when mailed. Seller Inventory # 000841

It isn't till Nolly Stennis ~ former opera singer turned accountant ~ hears of two performers (one of them his client) signing contracts with them and then vanishing that he gets suspicious. But he hardly expects that when he starts to investigate he will be kidnapped and find himself on the second moon of the seventh planet of the star Aldebran. Earth, a primitive world, is off-limits to the advanced civilisations of the Galaxy. But primitive culture is in vogue, and so Narabella Ltd. Has been set up to recruit talent for tours of distant worlds. Frederik Pohl's novel is a highly-ploished entertainment by a master of science fiction.* A NEAR VG+ ex-lib, text copy of the 1st/ 1st thus, with some faults in a VG protected dust jacket.* 1990-03-22. n.
