Mike Resnick - Agyarak
Duncan ​Rojas tudományos kutatót a galaktikus idő 6303-as évében váratlanul felkeresi egy különös, megszállott férfi, Bukoba Mandaka, az időközben már teljesen kihalt és elhagyott Föld egyik néhai, afrikai törzsének, a maszaiknak az utolsó leszármazottja. Mandaka egyetlen vágya, hogy még életében igazságot szolgáltathasson egykor dicső népének és visszaszerezze a Kilimandzsáró Elefántjának hatalmas, mítikus erővel bíró agyarait, melyek a galaktikus civilizációk évezredeiben itt-ott felbukkantak, majd nyomtalanul eltűntek. Duncan Rojas segítőtársául szegődik, kutatásaik azonban nem várt akadályokba ütköznek...

Mike Resnick - Redbeard
In ​a world ravaged by science, evolution fights back with the aberration known as Redbeard! Red Will Donahoe, born barbarian into a world stripped of civilization, was a misfit. All around him were the results of the final blowup that had doomed civilization, skulking in the ruins of the city. And Donahoe skulked, too, hiding from the struggling normal society on the other side of the great river. Hiding not from his own choice, but because he was bound by unseen ties to the man in shadows, Gareth Cole - Master of the Mutants. Cole watched his barbarian grow from childhood, grow into the fierceness of a manhood that could know no peace until it had tasted the rich taste of blood. And Cole, enigmatic ruler of half a world, wondered if he had made a mistake in allowing Redbeard to live.

Mike Resnick - The ​Doctor and the Kid
Welcome ​to a West like you've never seen before! With the O. K.

Mike Resnick - The ​Doctor and the Rough Rider
It's ​August 19, 1884. The consumptive Doc Holliday is preparing to await his end in a sanitarium in Leadville, Colorado, when the medicine man Geronimo enlists him on a mission. The time the great chief has predicted has come, the one white man with whom he's willing to treat has crossed the Mississippi and is heading to Tombstone - a young man named Theodore Roosevelt. The various tribes know that Geronimo is willing to end the spell that has kept the United States from expanding west of the Mississippi. In response, they have created a huge, monstrous medicine man named War Bonnet, whose function is to kill Roosevelt and Geronimo and keep the United States east of the river forever. And War Bonnet has enlisted the master shootist John Wesley Hardin. So the battle lines are drawn: Roosevelt and Geronimo against the most powerful of the medicine men, a supernatural creature that seemingly nothing can harm; and Holliday against the man with more credited kills than any gunfighter in history. It does not promise to be a tranquil summer.
