The Villain & The Golden Apple
by Ken Doggett
Two novellas and a short-short:
THE VILLAIN is a new member of the Enclave of the Villainy, but their rules are too restrictive and he disobeys. Now, after years on the run, he must use his magical illusions to defend himself.
THE SECRET OF LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING, a short-short.
THE GOLDEN APPLE is a prize asteroid. But those squabbling over it have crossed paths with the wrong man.
