Djana came up from slavery in the Black Hole of Jihannath (Poul Anderson, A Circus Of Hells, London, 1978, p. 40). When, aged fifteen, she tried to escape from the Black Hole, her contractor turned her over to the Giggling Man. (p. 150)
Later, most of the Terran Space Navy must be concentrated on that border of the Empire to prevent the Merseians from taking over Jihannath. (The Rebel Worlds, London, 1973, p. 18) Then, Imperial and Merseian delegations negotiate an end to the crisis. (Captain Flandry, New York, 2010, p. 82)
Less than I thought. In these passages, all that we are told about conditions on the planet itself is that there is slavery and torture in a Black Hole. Does anyone know of any other information about Jihannath in the Technic History?
