Contains The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, which I enjoyed and remember 35 years on. ( )
  CarltonC | Feb 18, 2014 |
The Custodians: novella about a monastery where a strange "observatory" has been created that allows users to see into the future. This is a tragic tale that seems to play with Cowper's interest in the linkages between past, present, and future and the interplay of predestination with free will. Well written and intriguing.

Piper at the Gates of Dawn: novella that sets up the world Cowper created for his "White Bird of Kinship" trilogy. Already reviewed as part of _The Road to Corlay_.
