Summary (From the publisher):

Three short novels exhibit the manifold talents of a writer who has been called the most original and imaginative of his generation.

"The Scorpion God" depicts a challenge to primal authority as the god-ruler of an ancient civilization lingers near death.

"Clonk Clonk" is a graphic account of a crippled youth's triumph over his tormentors in a primitive matriarchal society.

"Envoy Extraordinary" is a tale of Imperial Rome where the emperor loves his illegitimate son more than his own arrogant, loutish heir.
