Thanks to Cat Rambo and David Boop I was able to participate in this amazing anthology and share a new take on an old classic. I got to coauthor Riders of the Endless Void with Cat Rambo and it was an amazing experience working with her. I look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on this story. Please remember to leave a review.
