THE MOON OF THREE RINGS- It was the time of the Moon of the Three Rings when the Free Trader ship Lydis landed on the world of Yiktor, a planet the Combine was seeking to control for the power the Three Rings would bring them. The life of a Free Trader was all junior crew member Krip Vorlund knew, but when he visited a beast show on Yiktor he was strangely attracted to the owner of the show animals, a delicate and mysterious woman named Maelen. Soon Vorlund was caught up in a vicious struggle by powerful opponents of the fate of a planet-and learned the nature of Maelen's sorcery when he found his mind trapped in the body of a wolflike creature. Krip would again inhabit a human body-though not his own-and on a second planet he and the crew of the Lydis would be caught in a battle of Ancient powers and nameless evil. Only Maelen the Moon Singer could save them with her superhuman powers-if she didn't bring death and destruction instead. . . . [Publisher's Note: Moonsinger was originally published in parts as Moon of Three Rings and Exiles of the Stars, its sequel. This is the first time the complete saga has been published in one volume.]

Tam-sin knew dreams; she had been able to summon and dismiss them at her own will; they and the people in them had been but toys with which she could play at desire. Until she had dreamed for Lord Starrex and plunged them both into such a venture as she could not control. Somehow she had brought them here, to new identities, new adventures, and doubtless, new dangers. But there was Kas, who had striven to put an end to both in two times, two worlds, and who must also have been wrenched with them into this, though not in her company? She was to find out, and the doing was to bring her into the alien laws and unmapped lands of yet a third world, and eventually a fourth and a fifth. . . .

Do you like war games. Can you believe playing pieces might come alive? Adventure is the keynote offered in this scientific fantasy where the imaginary becomes real. In Quag Keep, six road companions travel under a wizard's geas to encounter and destroy unknown evil; but rather than a stereotypical fantasy novel Quag Keep has a certain twist. They are characters in a role-playing game. But what happens when the character and the players who play them come to conflict?

There is a malevolence lurking within the castle's walls, inspiring brazen treacheries and usurpations... and a foul abduction as unthinkable as it is unexpected.

And a young girl finds the heightened sense that has been her fortune now drawing her inextricably down into a maelstrom of evil. Now a great quest is in Willadene's future: a journey to a place of darkness; of tainted covenants and ancient battles of blood and sacrifice when monsters warred with heroes. For the extraordinary power that has molded her destiny is propelling her toward shocking self-knowledge and an impossible rescue in a realm of shadows, secrets, and devastated hope where the invincible lord of abominations reigns.
