"You let a man die today because you couldn't be bothered!­" "It wasn't my business.­" "You think nothing in life is your business!­" the wizard howled. "But I'll make it so things will be!­" Finnian waited alert, ready to kill if the wizard voiced a curse, but he only looked hard and said: "From now on, as long as you stay in my land, you will aid any man or woman in need of help.­" That didn't sound so bad..­until Finnian discovered the whole realm needed help!

"I tell you what I'll do,­" he said. "The stage won't be no good to me until Powder Keg amounts to somethin' . . . I'll bet a coach and team against what's on the table, draw and show down.­"His offer was a sufficient warning of his strength. However, I still liked my aces. A pair of them pack a lot of power in a two-­handed game, and I had the feeling that my luck had not run out . . .­I counted my aces as casually as pounding pulses would permit.

"The majority of the stories of the Alamo fight have been partly legendary, partly hearsay and at best fragmentary. It has been left to John Myers Myers to present an exhaustively researched book which reveals the chronicle of the siege of the Alamo in an entirely different light. . . .

She gave him a look that made him feel warm all over. “How would you like to make a survey of the Road for me? All I need is a clear, objective report based on first-­hand observation. All the others I commissioned never lived long enough to give me one.­” “What was the matter with them, except being dead?­” the professor asked nervously. “They got tangled up because they didn’t know how to look at things. I don’t know why I never thought of turning the job over to a scientist before.­” “That’s a mistake voters make, too” he allowed modestly, then loosened his collar. “Er, when do you want me to start?­” “Right away wouldn’t be to soon.­” “Oh! I couldn’t miss my one-­thirty class,­” he hedged. “You won’t,­” she assured him. “That is unless you get drowned in space, chewed up on land or sea, mobbed, or worse.­” She ran a hand reassuringly though his hair. “Just do, for my sake, be careful, pet.­” Resistance was useless. She was Venus. He was the merest of mortals. Ten minutes later, in spite . . .

“I half expected to run across my opponent as I escaped, but as it turned out I met no one at all in my stealthy trip to get my saddlebags from my room and my equally secretive visit to the stable. My horse was against being saddle at such an hour, but my grim firmness made short work of his rebellion. A drizzle abetted the dank chill of the hours as I rode forth . . . Next time I met that one, I swore to myself, things would be different.­”
