Summary

Barnabus J. Wildebear must rescue his 15 year old nephew when the boy is recruited by an enigmatic alien to fight in a war halfway across the galaxy. Forced to evade armies, survive telepathic assaults, and inhabit the minds of alien beings, Wildebear will come to question the nature of free will and his own sanity. But he cannot fail. Doing so would mean failing not only his nephew and humanity, but Wildebear himself.

    From Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award winner Joe Haldeman, the best-selling author of The Forever War and Forever Peace, comes a thrilling sci-fi story that examines a world where time truly is money, and what happens when they both run out.
    
    More even than space travel, the Stileman Process has altered 21st-century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensures that every 10 years or so, the ailing aging body can be restored to youthful vigour and health. There's a catch, of course: the cost. Every 10 years or so, you have to come up with £1,000,000 minimum to repeat the procedure or die.
    
    For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it's that time again. While casting around desperately for his next essential £1,000,000, he meets Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life, and makes two major discoveries.
    
    One: Not all Stileman "immortals" were born - or created - the same.An Author's Republic audio production.

    Murph, Forsyth, and Jamison heard the alien voice warn them. And to each it sounded familiar—a sweetheart, a son, a hated enemy! 
    In a dwindling spiral they circled the planet, and Murph's cold blue eyes studied the radarscreen. Things looked good: no sign of cities, social denizens or humanoids. He was scribbling notes on his desk when the all-wave above him started crackling. 
    He watched the green line sweep back and forth along the dial, finally centering on the wave length which was broadcasting. As it focused, the speaker sputtered in. 
    "... in accordance with Interstellar Code," it sounded like a recording, "... we repeat. Landings and colonizing efforts have been previously attempted upon this planet. They are not welcome and have not been successful. Change course and seek other areas. This warning is being broadcast upon wavelengths available to you and in language translatable by you in accordance with Interstellar Code...." Murphy switched it off and looked at his crew of two. 
    "Well?" Forsyth grinned at him. "The hell with them! We've heard that from every race in the solar system—one way or another. I say we land." 
    Jamison shrugged. "Put 'er down anywhere. Makes no difference to me." His scarred lips tightened. 
    "Okay," Murph switched the set back on. The same record was playing, monotonously. 
    "Load up with combat equipment, boys. We're going in." 
    The deadly silver needle tightened the spiral course around the planet, and above Murph the speaker crackled again and went dead. 
    "Guess they got tired of playing that record," he muttered. 
    Another crackling and the mechanism blared again. 
    "... we see you intend disregarding our warning. In accordance with Interstellar Code, it is only fair to warn you...." It clicked off abruptly as Murph jabbed at the switch. No use listening to this outworld nonsense—he'd heard it all before and lived through it.

    From the award-winning pens of Kim Iverson Headlee and short-fiction veteran Patricia Duffy Novak comes this darkly humorous mage-out-of-water tale: 
    A funny thing happened on the way to the battlefield. 
    Arthur, High King of Brydein, must fight the last of the rebel kings to acknowledge his right to govern them all: his old nemesis, King Urien of Dalriada. Before he can lead his army to where Urien’s forces sit ensconced, however, a fey man appears from the midst of a sudden, eerie storm to block the way. The man claims to be the high king of an altogether unknown land… and he wields uncanny power the likes of which Arthur has never seen. 
    Garrin, High King of Helvar, steps into a patch of mist. A breath later, he’s standing toe to toe with a man claiming to be the high king of an altogether unknown land… and this warrior-king is leading an army into Helvar, wielding a sword that resists Garrin’s magic. Only, the man insists that his sword isn’t enchanted and that Garrin isn’t in Helvar anymore. 
    What the bloody hell—or five hells, in Garrin’s case—is a high king to do? 
    Their encounter reeks of an enemy mage’s dark arts, and no one is laughing.
