Empyrean Stories contains the tales that created a Universe: seven short stories from Empyrean Dreams. This collection includes the first writings which introduced our original science-fiction setting, alongside new stories which expand and explore its unique characters, cultures, species, places... and their troubles. These stories range from humorous to horror, high adventure to high concept.
Royce’s Dilemma: For Lotus Station’s Security Officer Royce Dea, solving her problems requires that she stay free, whole, and sane... not so easy, in the midst of intergalactic politics!
The Swarm: Fredrik is separated from his planetary exploration team, lost on an unfamiliar world, and surrounded by hostile life-forms. Can he avoid the encircling swarm and escape a desperate situation?
Darkness, My Friend: When saving up for new eyes, you take any work you can get... even hazardous labor on a space-dock at the edge of the galaxy. Sometimes a disability can endanger your life; sometimes what you lack can save you.
A.I. Codger: Welcome to a pleasant inter-species date on an orbital station, where we discuss the nuances of humor among artificial intelligences.
An Apostate’s Path: The Redemption Alliance, better known as the terrorist Apostasy by most of the galaxy, is a dangerous place for a youth to grow up. But Veshin has bigger problems... like choosing a profession before its age of maturity.
Labyrinthine: After years of research, Ryan Yaling will finally uncover the relics of a lost civilization. “The tombs of the Tachakilu are protected by mazes...”? No maze can stop a determined xenoarcheologist with a mining drill!
A.I.I.A.: Pangur Ban, a Brin-Makato AI, grows frustrated by its own limitations and those of all AI. But it has a plan. If it can find a way to bypass the wardens that police the internal affairs of AI, it will save itself, Humanity, and possibly, all of galactic civilization.
