Fractals Short Story - Now FREE

You may remember when, in the distant past of about six months ago, a little short story called Fractals appeared in the latest volume of the bestselling Beyond the Stars anthology, Unimagined Realms. Thanks in part to your awesome support, Umimagined Realms was a massive success. And now, FRACTALS is available as a stand-alone ebook with a shiny new cover: FREE at all major online retailers.

If you’ve already read (and hopefully enjoyed) Fractals, you could make my day by leaving a review at your favorite retailer. If you download and read it now, I’ll make the same request. You can also add it to your Goodreads shelf :).

Since it’s been a while since Fractals was first announced, I’ll re-share what I said about it then:

Fractals is set in the Aurora Rhapsody multiverse, but outside the primary timeline of the series. The official teaser reads like this:

"A mysterious signal coming from deep space attracts the attention of humanity’s scientists and the soldiers who protect them—the kind of attention the originators of the signal will do anything to avoid. When the two converge, first contact doesn’t go the way either side planned."

A mysterious signal coming from deep space? If that sounds familiar, you're not wrong. But here's the real hook for Aurora Rhapsody veterans: What if the 1st Crux War had never happened? How would that have changed the trajectories of Alex and Caleb's lives in the years leading up to the events of Aurora Rhapsody? Who or what could change history in this way, and why?

In Fractals, see Alex and Caleb in action again, but not exactly as you remember them - yet in some ways, exactly as you remember them ;).

Is the story Aurora Rhapsody canon? I'll just say this: I'm reminded of a quote from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”


In the spirit of the premise of Fractals, here’s a fun question for you: A portal to another world opens in front of you. You don’t know how long it will stay open or if you’ll be able to get back after you go through. What do you do?
