Dark Expanse Anthology

I had the privilege of writing a story for the Dark Expanse anthology, a set of short stories set in the universe of the Dark Expanse multi-player online strategy game.  It’s the first time I’ve written a story in a shared world, and I found it to be a lot of fun, especially since the world had already been imagined so well by the authors who came before me.  There are a lot of great authors in this anthology, including Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy award winners, and the stories are a lot of fun to read.  I hope you’ll check it out!
