About Allan Rousselle
For most of his adult life, Allan Rousselle has lived at either one end of Interstate 90 (Boston) or the other (Seattle), and occasionally along points in between. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Russian and Soviet Studies the same year that the Soviet Union disintegrated, and his Masters in Political Science from University of Pennsylvania was immediately ignored when he entered a career in software engineering and data analytics. A former radio personality and print journalist with numerous fiction and non-fiction publications to his credit, Allan currently lives in the Seattle area with his sons.

And those good guys are the Space Force!
This final nail in the coffin of a peaceful collaboration in space is documented in epic stories of gay aliens, shiny probes, space walls, and of course: the USS Pence.
Never have so few. spent so much, in such snazzy uniforms, to make (echo chamber please) GUNS IN SPACE, a reality.
But what will such watering holes be like in the future? What form might they take on distant worlds--some human-run, some not--and on space stations? Who would be likely to frequent such places, and what tales would they have to tell?
Here are fifteen original yarns that take you bar-hopping around the galaxy to places where you'll encounter: An alien life-form that needs to be drunk to get drunk. . . .A reporter on the trail of the true story about a legendary space pilot. . . .A couple of spacers who'd been led to a bar they might never blast out of again. . . .A saloon where time travelers might run out of time. . . .And more interstellar adventures that will have you wishing you could belly up to the bar-or its alien equivalent-and spend and evening taking in these tales beyond your wildest imagining. . .
These words were the inspiration, the dare I put to the writers out there. Create for me art on that theme. They responded with music, words, and excitement.
Science fiction, urban fantasy, or sword and sorcery fantasy. Come explore the many places that twenty-odd visionaries went when they heard those words and enjoy all the bright and dark places you might go.
