Overview

Get Off the Unicorn (Talent Series) by Anne McCaffrey

A splendid selection of stories from the lady who taught dragons to fly and rockets to sing . . . 

Lady in the Tower
The Rowan was one of a select group of telepaths—a complete Prime, one of only five. Then one day, another Prime appeared mysteriously from the outer boundaries of space, asking for help in a savage battle against evil!

Finder's Keepers
Young Peter had a unique gift which earned him and his mother a little money and gave pleasure to others. Then, one day, an unscrupulous man forced Peter to use his precious gift in a crooked scheme—and Peter grew up fast!

Honeymoon
Helva and her new brawn were sent on an especially urgent mission . . . a mission that not only put them both in great danger, but a mission that also caused them to break the ultimate taboo!

The Smallest Dragon Boy
The only thing Keevan wanted in life was to be a dragonrider, just like his father . . . but everything seemed to stand in his way!

The best part of the book is where the authors explain the title. They'd originally intended to call it "Get of the Unicorn" but a printer's error in a catalog accidentally renamed it...

Mrs McCaffrey is an amazing author who has mastered the art of story telling. She is able to write a complete saga and still write each story to be a complete segment Independent of prequel or finale, Yet each one adds to and falls within her established dimension with conflict or contradiction.
