Spinward Fringe: Strange Horizons and Close Encounters September Update 2

It's update time for the Living Anthology - Strange Horizons and Close Encounters.

This time we get another look at the Triton and Captain Valance from Nerine's perspective as I take a small piece of the latest Spinward Fringe novel: Fracture. Threading this together as a single perspective story was something I actually wanted to do as soon as it was written since it was written separately from the rest of the book to provide point of view that could show the reader what it was like to be new to the Triton.

Why do I like Nerine? She's a character who has been forced to grow up too fast, finds herself in situations that most of us would be pretty lost in until we realized we had to make the best of things or be left behind. Her story is one that's off center from the main plot but is directly affected by the decisions made by the main characters.

Having said that I'd love to see someone else write a story for her and the people in her immediate orbit in the future. There's part of the appeal of a Living Anthology like this. It's free, widely available, and open to submissions.

The next addition to Spinward Fringe: Strange Horizons and Close Encounters will be something no one's ever seen.

You can get more information, download or re-download it in all eBook formats only at Smashwords.

Be aware, this book is recommended for readers who have read the entire Spinward Fringe series.
