Synopsis

Derai

Still driven by his search for Man's fabled birthplace, Earl Dumrest accepts a commission to guard the Lady Derai, heiress to the proud House of Caldor, on the feudal world of Hive. On Derai's home planet, Dumarest had hoped to meet a living witness to Earth. But instead he finds himself in the lists of the deadly Contest on Folgone - with the Lady of Caldor as prize. And on Folgone, for the first time, Dumarest confronts the Cybers: ruthless, emotionless tools of a great Gestalt which holds the mighty of the universe in its grip - a power which may yet provide him with the key to his quest for Earth.

The Singing Stones

A planet has been enslaved... and he is the only person who can set them free.

Geoff Latimer works for the Ethnic Federation to protect peoples unable to defend themselves against others -- like Terrans, and Deliyans.

But when he finds himself in the eerie land of Pa-Liina, he encounters a strange power. What appear to be simple stones are in fact beacons of music, projecting sound and filling whoever encounters them with bizarre new sensations. The ethereal essence to these 'stones that sing' has caused an entire race of people to be enslaved.

Caught between the oppressor and the oppressed, Geoff is almost out of his depth.

With the aid of native Nedra, a priestess, Geoff finds himself solely responsible for the liberation of these burdened people. But he is not alone in this fight: Nedra speaks of a 'Goddess' who can offer Geoff and his companion Tahn guidance on their quest.

But can they complete their mission and break the people of Pa-Liina free from the control of their persecutors in time?
