Today’s Friday Flash Fiction on my blog is called “Surviving the Sleeve.” It’s post-Perihelix, so it may contain clues to book 2.
In fact, if you look through the short stories set in the Viridian Universe (they often seem to be somewhere other than the Viridian System itself), take out the ones in the Sampler (out on Sept 28th), then take out the ones that look like they might be part of the Perihelix… it starts to look very interesting in terms of clues.
This week’s has some business between the Federation and the Imperium, who are two, let’s say ‘opposing’, super-organisations in the universe. And someone called Kaa Birith is involved. All I can tell you is that he is a significant character in the series!
