Towers of Darkover
"Official" presentation (from Daw Books)
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 the Darkover society -- The Towers. In these citadels, those giften 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.
