About the Book

This is my second attempt at a short story collection, containing some of my newer, better works:

  • Peripheral, a cyberpunk epistolary novelette about a rich teenager in hiding on the edges of a near-future society that's falling apart;
  • Parole Planet: a spoiled teenager is sentenced for a crime he commits on a distant planet with strange people and customs... that will slowly change him;
  • Collectivity, where two galactic civilizations based on antithetic principles narrowly avoid mutual destruction, thanks to a young soldier with empathy;
  • Distant Encounters: on a lost colony recently rediscovered, some people will kill to maintain their power now that the starships are returning;
  • Second Contact: the inhabitants of a lost colony in the middle of a civil war meet their distant descendants, who are no longer entirely human by now.
