Glory Road

Glory Road is a science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein published in 1963.

Discharged from the war in Asia, Oscar sits in a cafe in France hoping to win the Irish Sweepstakes. Into his life walks a beautiful woman (witch or empress?) who brings him on a quest to retrieve the Egg of the Phoenix. Assisted by Rufo (shameless rake or comparative culturologist), he treads the glory road in swashbuckling style.
