I’m currently working on The Final Frontier, the sister anthology to Galactic Empires. Think of this one as stories that take place long before the empires were founded. The focus is on exploration and discovery beyond one’s home world and includes topics like first contact, establishing colonies, new sciences, alien archaeology, generation ships, etc.
