Rakkox the Billionaire
The tale of a multibillionaire who abandons his militaristic aspirations ( & such Quixotic fantasies dreamed up by his Department of Invention as the utilization of herring in submarine warfare) in favor of a plan to convert a cliff into a work of architectural art.
The Great Race
Describes an intergalactic competition among worm spirits who wish to separate from their stars and achieve true autonomy in a ferocious race of winged sleds, cannon-airships, sky-high wheel-shaped vehicles & 100-mile-tall stilt machines. The winners will be transformed into gods.
