Yo-Yo: The Gift

The future depends upon a gift.

Fear Above, Terror Below

While recording a documentary outside the settlement, Mason and Tregon make a shocking discovery, one that could completely change their understanding of Martian history and reality... if they live to tell anyone about it!

Is Anyone Listening?
By James Denney
 
Tregon and Mason use their new airship's keen video eyesight to film a documentary science project, "An Aerial Tour of Mars." However, a hijacker wants the airship for its other senses. Will the boys give up their project for something far more important?

"If our species does not soon embrace this unique opportunity with sufficient commitment, it may miss its one and only chance to do so. Humanity could soon be overwhelmed by one or more of the many challenges it now faces. The window of opportunity is closing as fast as the population is increasing.... Our future will be either a Space Age or a Stone Age." - Arthur Woods and Marco Bernasconi, Space News, 1995
