In the last decades of the twenty-first century, ten families seeking to escape a devastated Earth focus on constructing spaceships to colonize the world they call New Eden, in the Paradisi System.
But the world they claim for their own is already inhabited, and the Ddaerans, although human in appearance, possess abilities that the Founders and their descendants do not…
In this latest title from THE FUTURE CHRONICLES, twelve authors take us on that incredible journey with adventurers, scientists and colonists, as they push the boundaries against the unknown, against alien civilization, and themselves.
Discover Chronicle Worlds. Discover Paradisi. Coming very soon.
I am honored that one of my stories, Aelwyd: Home, is included in this collection.
Aelwdy: Home is set in the first year of settlement on New Eden, the planet colonized by the ten Founding Families who have fled a dying Earth. Kammie, a young girl who appeared briefly in my novel, Between Mountain and Sea, finds that living on a planet takes her way out of her comfort zone. After a life-time living in space, dirt, bugs, even the open sky scared her. But when her stepbrother disappears into the wilderness, she has to summon the courage to go find him, or die trying.
