Synopsis

Forget what you thought you knew about the universe and enter the fantastic world of master storyteller Alan Dean Foster...

OPERATOR ASSISTED CALLS ARE CHARGED AT A HIGHER RATE
Mr. Parkworthy had a score to settle with the telephone company, and he was a man used to getting his own way. But he should have remembered that it is not polite to be rude to a lady... especially when the lady is Ma Bell.

THE METROGNOME
Charlie Dimsdale was only a little man in the company that ran New York City's subways... until some odd little denizens of the city's subterranean tunnels showed him who was really in charge!

THE TESSELATED TETRAHEXAHEDRAL YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS
Country people in America are a fair but mighty independent bunch. So when some government scientists rudely demanded that the Shattucks turn over the UFO that crashed on their Texas ranch, the Shattucks became a bit obstinate. Besides, the shining little spacecraft looked real cute hanging on the barn with the Christmas decorations.

COLLECTABLE
When young Pearl's life was collapsing around her, she could always find comfort in her extensive collection of dragon memorabilia - but some youngsters are more fragile than others, and dragons can be deadly.

...and eleven more stories!
