From the hypercivilized Powers at their heart to the brawling colonies of the Periphery and Beyond, trillions of lives are lived, each with its own story to be told.This is a collection of over 44,000 words of nanofiction and metafiction - excerpts from works taken from inside the fictional realm - from the Associated Worlds SF universe- little morsels of a world and culture unlike our own.
