In Solar Lottery, the ruler of the Universe is chosen according to the random laws of a strange game. Quizmaster Verrick is currently in charge, but when Ted Bentley, a research technician recently dismissed from his job, signs on to work for Verrick, he has no idea that Leon Cartwright is about to become the new Quizmaster. Nor does he know that he himself is about to play an integral part in the plot to assassinate Cartwright so that Verrick can resume leadership of a universe not nearly as random as it appears.
