Abstract:

The powers of the mind return to the magnificent world of the Bloody Sun in this exciting new, all-original anthology that explores one of the most fascinating facets of Darkover society---the Towers. In these citadels, those gifted with laran---mind talents which enable them to communicate telepathically, to rule the elements, to control birds and beasts with their thoughts---join together to work the laran matrices, sometimes for the good of all their world, sometimes in a struggle over power beyond any ordinary mortal's imagining ... From an apparently laran-less youth who discovers that his wild talent just doesn't function on Darkover ... to a "washerwoman" who "cleans up" people ... to a murderer from whom no one in the Overworld is safe ... here are twenty spellbinding stories of power and wonder.
