    Since time immemorial, when the Serpent-Lord coupled int he Great Rite with the Priestess of the Night, the Kingdoms of Dark and Light, Sun and Moon have been at war.  Now Pamina, daughter of the Starqueen and of Sarastro, King of the Royal House of the Sun, has to choose which of her parents she will follow, in custom and in principle. And together with her lover, princely Tamino, she must face her ordeal at the Court of Wisdom - the Ordeals of Earth and Air, Fire and Water, from which none may flinch and none may escape.
  • Darkover's most puzzling riddles lay in the incredibly high mountains known as the Hellers - jagged, almost impassable peaks that have sheltered races and enigmas that are legends in the outside world...the howling inhuman Ya-men, the deadly Ghost Wind, the fiefs of barbaric brigand chieftain, decaying Dry-towns and the eerie forces that were worshipped as gods.  Dan Barron was a rational, efficient member of the Terran Spaceforce, until nightmare visions drove him from the safety of the Trade City into the unmapped heart of the Darkovan mountains.

  • Kassandra - priestess of Apollo, princess of Troy, reared with the Amazons and initiate of the Great Mother - recounts the Trojan war:  not a romantic clash of heroes over the beautiful Helen, but a tussle for power between humans and the battle between the ancient worship of the Earth Mother and a new, patriarchal pantheon. Cursed by Apollo for her rejection of him, she was doomed to always speak the truth and never be believed.

  • A Darkover Tale. Haunted by the mysterious images of dark, hooded figures and the cawing of strange birds and drawn by the memory of two lost comrades, Magdalen Lorne, Chief Terran operative on Darkover, must pursue her quest, not only to the frozen ends of the physical world, but to the limits of the spiritual overworld as well.  For to find this city that no man has ever seen, she will be tested as she never has before by the evil sorcery of the Dark sisterhood.
