Alternate Futures

Your gateway to the Eternity Multiverse



This multi-author speculative fiction anthology features stories about control—by entities that want to harm or protect us, and stories about exploration. Not the happy, “everything is wonderful out there and all will be great if we only go” stories. But rather the “yes it’s dangerous out there, and we can get killed, but we still need to go” stories.

Yet, ultimately, Farspace 2 is an anthology of hope and promise for the future, an anthology that urges us to keep moving forward despite the hardships we might find along the way.

By grabbing your free copy of Farspace 2, you’ll also get notified of the latest Alternate Futures podcast releases and be the first to know about any giveaways.
