This week’s episode of StarShipSofa features a pair of stories that were not previously available online for free. The first is “Dominoes Falling,” the story written in the Dark Expanse video game universe which appeared in the Dark Expanse: Surviving the Collapse anthology. It’s followed by “The Far Side of the Wilderness” which appeared in Beyond the Sun anthology from Fairwood Press. Both are space opera adventures with a bit of a dark bend, so kudos to editor Jeremy Szal for bundling them together as they do complement each other nicely.
The episode also includes a flash piece by Stephen S. Power from Nature magazine.
This is the second time in a week I had a story (or stories) published without advance warning. (i.e. I knew they were going to appear in DSF and SSS at some point, just not when.) Honestly, I can get used to this kind of pleasant surprise.
The next up is “How Gaia and the Guardian Saved the World” which I do know the publication date of; it’s scheduled to appear at Amazing Stories on October 12 and I’ll post the link when it goes live!
