Interstellar Fiction is a semi-pro online magazine edited by Adam Crouse which launched in August of 2012. The inaugural issue included my story “A Better Tomorrow,” and I’m happy to return to the virtual pages of IF with another tale for its one year anniversary issue.
“The Sgovari Stratagem” is a sequel to “The Dragon Ships of Tycho.” Both are stories about a team of human diplomats whose job it is to secure alliances with various alien species to help humans prevail in a galaxy-wide war. The complication? Pretty much the entire universe already hates our guts.
You can pick up a copy of “The Dragon Ships of Tycho” for your favorite e-reader or buy the Galactic Creatures anthology it originally appeared in.
“The Sgovari Stratagem” is available to be read for free on the Interstellar Fiction web site.
Excellent story. You planning more?
Thanks! Yes, I have a series of stories somewhat-planned out all the way through to the end of the war, which will be a serial novel. It will be a WHILE before I get to work on this, though, as other projects are demanding my attention.
