Author’s Note: For this release, I’ve gone through the series and polished things up a bit. There’s some added description, a few minor characters pick up a bit of dialogue, and so on. After a little while, I’m planning to take the whole series offline, tear it apart, and turn it into the very first sci-fi novel officially set in the Echo Cluster. To that end, if you have any feedback, feel free to send me a PM via my Planets Nu account — something with a bit more substance than “I hated it!!!” please.
Thanks, as always, to Talespin for doing a ton of the hard work assembling these things. We wouldn’t be here without him. -G
