Toys of Tamisan
The first (novella) was from If, serialized in April, May of 1969. The other 3 stories appear to be original to this collection. The first 2 feature Tamisan/Tam-sin - an Action Dreamer from the hives of Ty-Kry, who had an off-world father. Her heritage makes her a powerful Dreamer, and the combination of that with the intrigues of those who hire her bring about most unexpected results. The other 2 stories are set on Ty-Kry but involve different dreamers. The first story appears in several collections - the others can only be found here, and should not be missed. In my opinion, this is one of the last books by Norton that I would call up to her old standards.
