In this volume: Port Eternity: Lancelot, Elaine, Percival, Gawain, Mordred, Lynette and Vivien are made people – clone servants who work aboard The Maid, an anachronistic fantasy of a spaceship. They had no idea they had originated from old storytapes of chivalry, romance, heroism and betrayal, until a ripple in the space-time continuum sucked the Maid and her crew into a no-man’s-land from which there could be no return. They are left alone to face a crisis which their ancient prototypes were never designed to master…                                                                                                                                                                                                       Wave Without A Shore: Freedom is an isolated planet – not because it’s inhospitable, or off the main spaceways, but because outsiders – tourists and traders alike – claim that the streets are crowded with mysterious blue-robed aliens. Native-born humans deny these aliens exist – until a planetary crisis forces a confrontation between the question of reality and the reality of the question.                                                                                                                                                                               Voyager In The Night: Rafe Murray, his sister Jillian and Jillian’s husband Paul Gaines – like many other out-of-luck spacers – have come to try their luck at Endeavor Station. Their tiny ship has been salvaged from the junk heap and fitted to mine ore from the mineral rich rings that circle Endeavor. But a collision with a huge alien vessel provides them with the oddest first contact experience possible!
