They terraformed planets and extinguished stars, uplifted and destroyed intelligent life. They patiently shaped the galaxy toward the purpose known only to them.And then, one day, they disappeared without a trace.The period of calamity that came next is known as the Collapse. Billions of sentient beings were suddenly free from their masters - free to fight among themselves for dominance over their town, their world, their star system. Interstellar economy crashed as the shipping lanes shut down.

Inhabitants of many worlds rioted and starved.Over time, new political structures had emerged. Like-minded leaders forged alliances and federations to defend against their neighbors. Jump gate technology allowed allies access to friendly star systems while keeping out the aggressors. Galactic politics entered the new age of shifting alliances, sabotage missions, and only an occasional war.Within this volume, youll find eighteen short stories that flesh out this universe. From humorous to bone-chilling, from the time of the Collapse itself to several hundred years later, these tales explore different aspects and periods of the Dark Expanse storyline.

Youll meet heroes and villains, space pirates and black ops operatives, mad telepaths and crusading zealots.CONTENTCastles in the Sky by Nancy FuldaDominoes Falling by Alex ShvartsmanThe Ten Suns by Ken LiuBetrayal, Clear as Kanzai Glass by Deborah WalkerThe Price of Escape by David WaltonHellfire Unleashed by Simon KewinBreaking Down by Michael HaynesThey Cannot Scare Me With Their Empty Spaces by Deborah WalkerA Small and Secret Freedom by Matt MikalatosLightspeed Back to You by David WayneEscape from Planet Error by Michael GreenhutJump by Deborah WalkerLoud for All the Stars to Hear by Alex KaneTo Soar on Winds of War by David WayneFires of Night by Alvaro Zinos-AmaroGorlack the Destroyer’s All You Can Eat Adventure by Robert L.
