"The Youth Monopoly" - " Rodney Dorashi was a homeless, starving pauper, running from the dictator Korm, when Ormand Bey ushered him into Trysis. Rodney had never made out an application for youth and rejuvenation at the luxury resort, yet there he was - being offered immortality, a chance to join the select few who distributed the Anzee seeds, and the opportunity to avenge himself on Korm. The only problem was that Rodney couldn't accept the invitation - not without knowing who - or what - was making the offer."
"The Pictures of Pavanne " - "they were a miracle to behold. A visual mystery, a beatific, hypnotizing ever-changing art form. Max Farway, the brilliant Terran artist, was destined to try to capture their majesty on canvas. The wealthy but physically deformed artist was obsessed by the Pictures of Pavanne. He traveled to the barren planet, that had only the tourist city of Pavanne cultivated and adapted to human needs. It was a carnival town, trapping tourists by the millions from the entire galaxy. And Harkrider was the master of Pavanne. Harkrider controlled the planet, and amassed fortunes through the allure of the bewitching Pictures. Yet somehow, this omnipotent master of Pavanne was afraid - afraid of Max Farway, who unknowingly held the answer to the devastating perplexity of the Pictures of Pavanne."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
