Summary

A THRILLING PLANET NOVEL
ALCATRAZ OF THE STARWAYS      (by Albert dePina and Henry Hasse)
Venus was a world enslaved. And then, like an avenging angel bringing knowledge of a weapon so terrible it had been used but once in the history of the universe, came a Warrior-Princess to strike the shackles from people who wanted only to live in peace.
STIRRING NOVELETS OF ALIEN WORLDS
THE BLUE BEHEMOTH    (by Leigh Brackett)
Shannon’s Imperial Circus was broke—and jinxed. Its biggest asset was a blue Venusian cansin. And then, in a grey Venusian swamp, the asset became a liability which had to be paid for in human lives.
THREE PLANET SHORT STORIES
STRANGER FROM SPACE       (by  Hannes Bok)
He was a god from space—and strangely inhuman.
GRIFTERS’ ASTEROID    (by H. L. Gold)
It was a special con men’s free-for-all—three slickers outgyping each other.
MENACE OF THE MISTS               (by Richard Storey)
A mindless horror poured from the sea-bottoms of Venus.

    Dark necromancers have laid claim to forsaken kingdoms and summoned forth the souls of those who defiled their oathmarks. The dead, once again, march to war. As armies of wraiths and skeletal warriors bring destruction to their lands, the small kingdoms of the Marches also turn to the spirits of the dead. Gathering the most ancient and powerful of oathmarks, they recall the spectral forms of those that died in loyal battle to once again come forth in defence of their kingdoms. With these ethereal warriors joining their ranks, the kings of the Marches may yet stand. 
     
                This supplement for Oathmark: Battles of the Lost Age introduces the forces of the dead to the game. Some armies will use dark magic to summon the souls and corpses of traitors from the past, while others will recall the spirits of loyal warriors that gave their lives and willingly fight again. This book also includes expanded rules for characters, which allow you to chart their progress from battle-to-battle, and watch as they grow in rank, responsibility, and power. All of these rules are then incorporated into a campaign featuring new scenarios that together tell of an epic war for survival.

    There's power in stories. This is a story of power. 
     
    Dead bodies aren't unusual in the alleyways of Fenest, capital of the Union of Realms. Especially not in an election year, when the streets swell with crowds from near and far. Muggings, brawls gone bad, debts collected – Detective Cora Gorderheim has seen it all. Until she finds a Wayward man with his mouth sewn shut. 
     
    His body has been arranged precisely by the killer and left conspicuously, waiting to be found. Cora fears this is not only a murder, but a message. 
     
    As she digs into the dead man's past, she finds herself drawn into the most dangerous event in the Union: the election. In a world where stories win votes, someone has gone to a lot of trouble to silence this man. Who has stopped his story being told?
