The Universe Against Her is a sequenced collection of the first two Telzey Amberdon science fiction stories by James H. Schmitz:

The novelet and novella meld into a fine introductory novel of Telzey: her extraordinary mind, latent unique talents, and fascinating galactic milieu. See the essay Demigoddess of the Mind: James H. Schmitz's heroine Telzey Amberdon.

These two stories also lead off the larger collection Telzey Amberdon — which unfortunately contains a slightly abridged version of "Undercurrents".
