After generations of warfare against the ominous Swarm, the United Planetary Alliance settles on a desperate gambit—send a squad of Marines to steal one of the Swarm’s bio-organic battleships. However, it turns out the ship isn’t merely alive but fully sentient… and it has a mission of its own. As the ship leaps across the galaxy, dimensions, and eventually reality itself, the crew has a new goal—stay alive! Join Skullgate Media on an epic space-opera filled with sexy murder-queens, ring-planets, and freaking space-sharks, all fueled by psychedelic Vesuvian coffee and sixth-dimensional funk!
The story featured in this volume by Allison N Moore is:
Trapped on a sentient ship, conspiracies abound. UPA Marine Kevin Renner is determined to uncover the truth, but the music in his head makes that easier said than done.
At the crossroads between Mieville’s New Crobuzon and M.T. Anderson’s Viriconium, on the border of Dhalgrin and D&D, just to the left of Terry Pratchet’s Disk World and Mad Max’s Fury Road … lies Acthen Tan.
In this inaugural volume, the world in question is Achten Tan, an at times brutal and at times humorous city located at the foot of the Godtree on the southern edge of the Bonewastes.
Home to giant ants, mysterious mirror fragments, and the world’s greatest barbecue rib joint, Acthen Tan is bursting with stories of fantasy and wonder. One part Italo Calvino, one part
Frank Herbert, with just a dash of George R.R. Martin and Frank L. Baum.
The two stories writen by Allison N. Moore featured in this Volume are:
In a harsh world filled with fearsome boggaliz and sand storms, sometimes a girl just needs to have a little fun. A teenage girl’s newest invention lets her do just that.
Rrekwe’m of Blood
Aislinn Rrekwe’m, the Virago of the Svaalti elves, attempts to save her people from the doom brought upon them through the actions of the ignorant citizens of Achten Tan by offering a blood sacrifice to the old gods.
