Overview

MEET TELZEY AMBERDON-SHE'S NOBODY'S TOY

Telzey Amberdon was only in her teens when she discovered that she was a telepath. Not only a telepath, but a xenotelepath, able to communicate mentally not just with humans, but with alien intelligences. And she turned out to be one of the most powerful telepaths in the history of the galactic civilization called the Hub.

First she had to deal with an alien race that humans hadn't realized were intelligent, and who were about to eliminate those troublesome humans who thought they were colonizing an uninhabited world. Then, she had to fend off the secret psi agents of the Psychological Corps who took a dim view of any telepath, let alone one with Telzey's powers, operating outside of their control. Next, she stumbled across a telepathic serial killer, who used an unstoppable predator, under his mental control, to hunt and kill his victims-and Telzey was to be the catch of the day.

It was fortunate for the human race that she survived, since she next found herself in the middle of a secret war between two hidden races of genetically engineered humans. They called it the "Lion Game," and they made the mistake of thinking that in this clash of predators, Telzey was just a harmless kitten. But when the dust settled, Telzey would be the only one purring....

    telzey is a great character!

    I had never read Schmitz before and I'm glad I found him! I thought these stories might be dated, but they're not. Telzey is wonderful; a great female character. It amazes me that Schmitz created her back when there were no great female sci-fi protagonists (not that there is an overabundance now). I did find a few of the stories a bit slow, but the characters were so engaging that I always picked up the book again to find out what happened. Highly recommended reading!

    Wonderful SF back in print

    This book, and the others in the series of reprints of Schmitz's stories, are an absolute MUST buy for anyone who likes `golden era' SF. I read them when they first appeared in magazines (mainly ASF/ANALOG) in the 60s and 70s, collected them from second-hand books stores when I could find them, and STILL didn't have them all when this re-print came out. Buy two copies of each: one for yourself and one to lend to friends --- indeed, buy three, so you'll still have a copy to lend when someone doesn't give back the copy he borrowed (which certainly will happen)!

    The greatest SF short story author is back!

    After 25 years of searching for stories written by James Schmitz, we finally have them collected. Several of the stories in this book were unknown to me. These stories introduced me to science fiction when I was young and gave me a great love for science fiction. I really enjoy the strong female characters that resolve the situtions they encounter. These stories are just as enoyable to read today as they were 30 years ago. Also they are not dated but still very current with today's technology. The author used technology that anyone can recognized as the cell phones and personal computers and intenet use, but they were created before any of this came about. The stories grab you are leave you with a great feeling. A must read for anyone you enjoys adventure with a twist. I bought 3 copies to ensure that they do not get lost in my personal collection.

    Great stories to read again and again

    Telzey Amberdon had a several stories I already had in my collection. These are stories I have read every year or so for the last ten years. It was great to have the additional stories. James Schmitz was a very entertaining author.

    Finally Back In Print

    Schmitz was one of the great writers of his time, but he primarily wrote short fiction. Aside from a few minor collections, his work hasn't been seen in twenty years. His Telzey Amberdon books have been on my 'see if there are any here' list for used book stores for the past ten years. His stories of the Hub are being reissued in four complete volumes -- this is the first. It includes some stories I had never seen before, along with two complete novels (actually, related short stories which were re-published in the 70's as _The Universe Against Her_ and _The Lion Game_). If you enjoy science fiction or strong female characters, YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK. IMHO, the reissuance of these stories in new editions is a major publishing event (no, I'm not affiliated with the publisher, but I've been on their site).
