Seventeen incredible authors. Seventeen amazing stories. One fantastic sci-fi universe, where the only limit is one’s imagination. Welcome to Starflight.
Based on the exploration-based Starflight video game series created by Greg Johnson and the Binary Systems team, the stories in Tales From the Starport Lounge flesh out and shine a light into the darkest corners of the known universe. Join the last vestiges of Humanity and their alien allies (the reptilian Thrynn, the insectoid Velox, and the plant-based Elowan) as they attempt to carve out their own territory in a sector of space filled with wondrous opportunity and deadly threats. Brave explorers seek out new worlds to colonize while merchants cruise from starport to starport, their holds laden with exotic goods.
Not all in this futuristic setting have noble intent. For every prospector and trader attempting to make a difference, a dozen pirates, smugglers, and mobsters engage in all manner of criminal enterprise. Gangs fill the underbellies of every major city and raid the trade routes between the stars, pushing the outnumbered and outgunned Interstel Police to their limit and forcing civilians to take matters into their own hands. It’s a rough and tumble universe, where one wrong move could spell doom for an expedition, or grant enough wealth to buy a planet.
Board your ship and set course for stars unknown! The universe awaits.

Thirty-five awesome stories - one kick ass meme that started it all.
It started as a joke. Storm Area 51 they said. They can't stop all of us they said. But all laughter stopped when the U.S. Air Force mobilized the reserves and pulled out the big guns.
However, relentless mockery and derision by the media and the powers that be pushed the weebs and alien enthusiasts too far. What else were they supposed to do? They put on their big girl panties and showed up, determined to find out exactly what secrets were hidden behind the walls of the clandestine government facility.
Are you brave enough to buy this anthology today? If you are find out what the government wants to keep hidden.

What’s hotter than a man in uniform? A man OUT of uniform, of course, and there are plenty of those inside! “Men in Uniform” features stories with all sorts of men in and out of uniform, no matter whether that uniform is military, police, or firefighter.
Can you find love in a combat zone? It’s possible…but how do you make it work? And when servicemen are back home, they need love, too, but with the au pair? Need to shake things up? We’ve got a story for you.
A firefighter looks for love with an old flame as she works toward opening day with her restaurant, while another firefighter is fanning the flames with a beau she hasn’t seen in many years. Will a policewoman looking for clues find love instead? Finally, when love’s involved, will a woman be able to find the trust she needs?
These stories—and many more—are all inside, from a variety of talented authors you know and love, as well as others you may not know—yet. Step inside and get a steamy look at men in uniforms…and out of them, as well!

The Corner Scribblers is a small writer's support group in the Chattanooga area comprised of writers, authors, and storytellers from a wide range of skills and backgrounds. We come together once a month to discuss our current projects, recent accomplishments and to share what we have each learned about the craft.
Here you will find a variety of genres from science fiction to horror, to fantasy and many dimensions in between. The stories found here all begin with scribbling on the corner of a napkin. The rest is left to the imagination. Who knows what could happen or what dangers lurk at the end of the journey? It all starts with the simplest of paper that takes each character on a journey to change for the better (or worse) than how they started, by honoring the scribbling on a napkin.
