"Interstellar adventure has a new king." --George R.R. Martin

This special edition of Investments also contains the story "The Stickpin," never before seen in print and unavailable in any other format.

Together, these stories continue the histories of Gareth Martinez and Caroline Sula, and deepen the world created in the author's cherished Praxis series.

Investments finds Gareth Martinez unable to find a meaningful post due to the hostility of his superiors. He's accepted a meaningless post as Inspector General of Chee, a newly-settled world. Intending nothing more than a pleasant vacation with his family, he first stumbles across a murderous conspiracy, and then learns he must battle a literal cosmic menace that threatens to wipe out all life on the planet.

In "The Stickpin," set in the Naxid War, Caroline Sula leads the resistance against the Naxid occupiers, and shows how a pleasant afternoon stroll can have deadly consequences to the enemy.
