Anne McCaffrey. ACE Charter, $7.99 (328pp) ISBN 978-0-441-73576-1

The Rowan, a powerful but lonely psychic in charge of the Federal Telepath & Transport service, touches minds and falls in love with another of her ilk who needs help fighting extraterrestrials. ``In this sensitive portrayal (expanded from the author's first published story, `Lady in the Tower') McCaffrey draws a warm and vivid picture of a struggling frontier society,'' said PW.
