NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... Escape from Sonmatia Two, a new novella by J. Z. Colby, allows us to walk in the shoes of a brother and sister whose courage holds the key to saving their dying civilization. But their long and dangerous journey prepares them for something even more important. - Still Voices, a short story by Mary Anne Brenner, gives us a glimpse of some gentle and noble creatures who transcend time as we know it. Their destiny turns out to be more noble than anything we can hope for. - Floating Away, a short story by Tiffany Pertranovich, reminds us what adventure really is, from the point of view of youth not yet burdened with the weight of adulthood. But when youth are not allowed their adventures, they might find the courage to pursue them anyway. - The Lonely Space Dragon, in a short story by Sammy McNeil, just wants to play with his friends. All he has to do is fly through dark intersteller space for 10 years ... or trust a mysterious ship and its crew to take him home. - This final work in the NEBADOR series also includes 10 previously-published short stories by past winners of the NEBADOR Writing Contests, and the narrative about King Zolko's people on Sonmatia Four. - These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. It is truly a grand adventure in which the characters come to understand a beloved saying of the Nebador Transport Service: Personal power is the ability to stand on your own two feet, with a smile on your face, in the middle of a universe that contains a million ways to crush you. - This is the PAPERBACK GLOBAL edition in 10-point type.
