The Symbiotes (Analog September 1972). Trigger Argee discovers an eight-inch tall man hiding among utensils on her restaurant lunch table. She helps him escape his pursuer and teams up with Telzey, but is captured when Telzey leaves to contact the Psychology Service for help, and wakes up later in a distant star system. Then begins an odyssey to escape and free the little people, during which she discovers she has latent, if limited, psionic abilities that she needs to cultivate for her own protection. After her adventure, Telzey assures her that being a functioning psi is not such a disadvantage. Reprinted in T’nT: Telzey and Trigger.
Child of the Gods (Analog March 1972). A dangerously accomplished psi takes control of Telzey’s mind when her guard is down, forcing her to deal with an alien creature that is causing disasters at his crystal mine on Maunafra. He is also illegally mining djeel, the oil which the alien needs to escape the planet on which it has been stranded—which is the root cause of the problem. Reprinted in T’nT: Telzey and Trigger.

The Lion Game (Analog August and September 1971). Telzey doesn’t entirely trust the Psychological Service, but occasionally teams up with them for mutual benefit. The Service has detected that there’s a new psi awareness of Telzey’s abilities at her college, and makes arrangements for her to Tinokti as an agent—and as bait! That sets her up for a nerve-wracking chase between connecting portals on the planet, where everyone can be an enemy. Reprinted in The Lion Game.
Poltergeist (Analog July 1971). This is a very short piece in which Telzey, off on a weekend by herself, encounters a distraught man threatened by his own unrealized alternate personality, and has to find a way to deal with it, in order to save him and herself. Reprinted in Telzey Amberdon (Baen, 2000).
Glory Day (Analog June 1971). Telzey and Trigger are stunned, kid- napped, and wind up on Askanam, a day before the annual Glory Day tournaments in a political scheme that involves other telepaths. Telzey’s psionic abilities are more highly developed than the others’ and she helps Trigger develop a mind- shield. Still, they have a tough time working their way out of a danger- ous situation. Reprinted in T’nT: Telzey and Trigger (Baen, 2000).
