It takes a little bit to catch on to what's happening - but this is that story that explains how a species native to a planet can be in an economic crises because there is only ONE creature that gives them an essential nutrient - and the entire race is dying out.

In Golden Dream we learn WHY the Fuzzies were facing these problems, what they thought of the Big Ones who came to them in their time of need - and just generally fun reading. ( )

Mayhar did a great job of adding to the Fuzzy stories. Could hardly tell that it was not Piper. Gave a great story of where the Fuzzy's came from and what they were. ( )

Tripping and scrambling.
When we play hide-and-find
