The Child Collector

Inquestor Tales Three
(The seventh book in the Inquestor series)
A novel by

After 33 years, S.P. Somtow is finally creating a fifth book in the Inquestor universe, the galaxy-spanning science fantasy series that Theodore Sturgeon called "the greatest magnitude of spectacle and color since Olaf Stapledon." The book is being released in a series of installments in pulp-sized magazine format. INQUESTOR TALES No. 3 contains the third episode of the novel, interesting notes on the Inquestral Highspeech, bonus reprints of the original versions of "Remembrances", and "The Comet Who Cried for Its Mother" stories incorporated into the tetralogy but never reprinted in their magazine form, a lettercolumn, and other notes and mini-articles from S.P. Somtow as well as from many of the field's most interesting commentarians. In this episode, the plot thickens as a Child Collector comes to Urna to gather up the most perfect children to be trained as childsoldiers. With their shared DNA, only ONE of the dopplings will be snatched up - but which one?
