SHATTERED CITADEL: SHORT STORIES
The Shattered Citadel Universe is a richly detailed sci-fi universe that I have been working on for years. One of my passions is to write short stories within that universe. Most of them are based on important events within the vast history of the SC Universe and/ or introduce some major characters from my Shattered Citadel books. These stories will also be included in the book as an extra bonus. I will release more and more of these short stories as time goes by, so please sign up for updates or check from time to time.
