Available in Tales from the Edge: Escalation.
A little story that Alastair wrote for the Maelstom’s Edge Universe.
You don’t need to know anything about the Universe other than a maelstrom of energy is travelling up the spiral arm of the galaxy wiping out everything in its path. Systems are being evacuated and there’s lots of different factions with different views as to how to deal with things.
This story covers a journey back to one of the evacuated planets.
Next up from Alastair is Visiting Hours.
Bye for now.
