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 Venusian coffee and sixth-dimensional funk!
Tales From The Year Between is Skullgate's anthology series that brings together writers from around the globe to invent an original world from scratch. After two weeks of intense world-building, each author sets out to expand their new, fabulous universe through short-stories, flash fiction poems, songs or whatever else their boundless imaginations unleash. Each volume is new, exciting, and utterly unique.
About the Author
Chris Van Dyke was raised in a small town of 1200 people on the Southern Oregon Coast. Which is why it seems so unlikely that he would have spent the last 17 years living and teaching in New York City, but such is the way of Fate. When he is not hoping to interest teenagers in the public school system in reading and writing, he is himself reading and writing. He has written a dozen short stories and is currently querying his first finished novel, the epic-fantasy "Dragon's Curse," and editing his second novel, "Love Songs for NeoTokyo" and YA Sci-fi romance.
There may be an episode of Steven Universe that doesn't make him cry, but he can't think of it right now.
