Jasper Island: the story of a miner foreman's encounter with a loud-mouth naturist. The Offender: an account, as recorded by a bard with a flair for the experimental, of one imp's crime, which was not crime, and the punishment that followed. The Agent: a story emphasizing the importance of language as a conceptual devise and thought-aid, as explored through the story of an agent of the totalitarian Emperor as he deals with a band of nomads who "resist the aid of State". The Voice of The Shogun: Penult, a loyal samurai imp, is faced with an impossible choice. The Tax-collector: a story taking place in an anarcho-capitalist society, emphasizing the dangers of such extreme, runaway capitalism, corporatism. Word-count:12,300
