The liberation of Summersun brings the wrath of the universe upon the Silver Dragon crew. Sandmen stole away Commander Reynard, and not a single myth in the galaxy speaks of them taking anyone alive—ever.

Political tensions mount across the galaxy, caused by the crew’s direct participation in the assassination of Commodore Micah Donkor and the kidnapping of Princess Aurora. VP-Admiral Maxtin, with the looming death of his old ally and superior Vice-Presidential Admiral Easter, enters a power struggle with Easter’s war-eager new favorite: Admiral Kantian.

While the Silver Dragon crew tries to find a way to search for Reynard and navigate the political upheaval they helped set in motion, the Sandmen besiege them. They manipulate the crew’s already fragile relationships. When crew members begin sabotaging one another, trust wears thin.

The crew members journey across unknown planets, dreamscapes, and even hostile alternate realities to come together and fight beings who use their darkest fears and desires against them.

About the Author

William Schlichter has a Bachelor of Science in Education emphasizing English from Southeast Missouri State and a Masters of Arts in Theater from Missouri State University. With fifteen years of teaching English/Speech/Theater, he has returned to making writing his priority. Recent successes with scriptwriting earned him third place in the 2013 Broadcast Education Association National Festival of Media Arts for writing a TV Spec Script episode of The Walking Dead.

His full-length feature script, Incinta, was an officially selected finalist in the 2014 New Orleans Horror Film Festival. Incinta received recognition again by being selected as a finalist at the 2015 Beverly Hills Film Festival for a full-length feature. Incinta has advanced in several other script contests, including most recently being an Official Selected finalist in The 2016 Irvine Film Festival. His next life goal would be to see his film transferred from the pages to the screen.

Writing has always been his passion even through travelling, raising twin children and educating teenagers. While he specializes in the phantasmagorical world of the undead and science fiction fantasy stories, William continues to teach acting, composition and creative writing.
