Ever-turbulent humanity has reached out to the stars and found itself challenged by several “exosapient” species whose motivations are as unusual as their physical forms. Troubleshooters like Caine Riordan must contend with both humans and aliens during this epic plunge into the high-stakes exploration, statecraft, and warfare that churn and change our post-contact world.
But no world is defined just by the characters who occupy center stage. “Lost Signals” digs deep into the lives—and struggles—of those beyond the spotlight by bringing together twenty new voices and new stories in a format that blurs the line between fact and fiction in the Consolidated Terran Republic.

Sweet Christmas Hell
All us will say,
Throw cares away!
Christmas is near,
Bring holiday fear
To young and old
Snippets to be told!
Ding dong... ding dong
Horror we bring
One seems to hear
Screaming in fear
Filling the air.
Oh how spirits pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.
Gaily they write
Of people’s fright
Snippets of fear,
Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Scary, scary, Scary, Scary Christmas.
