Bridge to Elsewhere Anthology


In the vastness of space, there’s room for all types of adventures. Scientists seek to solve the mysteries of the universe. Explorers look for lost alien civilizations or new worlds to support life. Planet builders and planet smugglers create life and steal worlds. And some human spacefarers navigate with the help (or hindrance) of feline or feathered companions. The universe contains infinite possibilities—but while space is limitless, it’s the people who travel it that make their adventures worth reading. And many of the decisions they make happen on the bridge of a spaceship.
