  • Late one stormy night three princesses are born.  As each baby is placed in her mother's arms, the Archimage Binah bestows on her a powerful gift: a pendant containing a bud of the long-extinct Black Trillium.  One day, that power will be all that protects the princesses from certain doom. Cover art by Geoff Taylor.
  • Late one stormy night, in the pleasant and peaceful land of Ruwenda, three princesses are born.  As each baby is placed in her mother's arms, the Archimage Binah bestows on her a powerful gift: a pendant containing a bud of the long-extinct Black Trillium: the badge of the royal house, a symbol of an ancient magic. While the sisters blossom into beautiful young women, neighboring Labornok use a dark magician to sunder Binah's protection. As invaders pour into Ruwenda, the Archimage orders the princesses to flee-and changes them to search for three magical talismans which when brought together will be their only chance to regain their kingdom and free its people. Each must accomplish her task separately-and to succeed, each must also confront and conquer the limits of her own soul. Cover art by Geoff Taylor.

  • Endless voyage...that's an old saying in the Explorers. But for every Explorer there is, somewhere, a planet he will not leave. For some, the cause is love. For others, the desire to give up the strange roving life of the star wanderers who live outside of planet-time. Even for the ones who love the metal ships that are their only home there is still a planet waiting, a planet that will hold them forever - in the final clasp of death. But until then, life is adventure and wonders undreamed of by mere planet dwellers, an Endless Universe of the unknown.  Cover art by Lombardo.  Later re-written and published as Endless Universe.
  • Narabedla...where the Rainbow Cities gleam in every colour imaginable under the light of twin suns; where lush flowers croon a song of death in the gardens of Karamy the Golden, where their victims are never found; where falcons with human intelligence hunt in the forests, but seek no ordinary prey; where the mutant Dreamers sleep fitfully in their dark keep, dreaming of power lost long ago, and soon to be reclaimed...Cover art by Melvyn Grant.
  • She had rejected her noble birthright and embraced the freedom only a man could claim. She was Romilly, who spurned humanity for its evils and jealousies and lived among the birds and the beasts of the forests. There was war in the lands of Darkover - but Romilly wanted none of it. Yet, dressed as a man or mindful of the creatures, she was also human. And duty to her own kind pointed her to the ultimate decision. Cover art by Bruce Pennington.
