Pegasus in Flight & To Ride Pegasus Publisher's Summary

To Ride Pegasus
They are extraordinary people who read minds, heal bodies, divert disasters, foretell the future - and become pariahs in their own land. Molly, Charity, Barbara, Dorotea, Amalda - they are the Talents - an elite cadre that have stepped out of the ordinary human race to enter their own!

Pegasus in Flight
As Director of the Jerhattan Parapsychic Center, telepath Rhyssa Owen coordinates the job assignments for the psychically gifted Talents in her group. She is always ready to welcome new Talents to the Center, even though she has her hands full dealing with the unreasonable demand for kinetics to work on building the space platform that will be mankind's stepping stone to the stars. But when an extraordinary man with no measurable Talents appears, Rhyssa suddenly realizes that she will need to reassess the potential of all Talentkind.

    They were called Talents - people with extrasensory abilities including reading minds, predicting the future, and healing. But though their gifts were useful and powerful, they were not happy. Often afraid of their own "inexplicable" powers, they lived on the margins - until Henry Darrow dreamed up the Parapsychic Center and started making a place for the Talents. It wasn't very long before they had a mission - and enemies.
