Writing on the Edge

The ones who want to cause harm are too well-placed.

Check out Matt Ostrom's cool artwork for Urushalon 2: Into the Open's wraparound cover. The final cover will be coming soon.

This is the continuing saga of the Eshuvani who crash-landed their generation ship on earth in the 1600s. Three hundred and fifty years later, the aliens and the humans have developed a tenuous relationship. The Eshuvani live primarily in enclaves and do their best not to interfere with human development. From time to time, they share technology that helps and supports their neighbors.


Amaya Ulonaya has moved her career to Las Palomas to be near her urushalon, Ed Osborn. Her assignment is to  build a station in a buffer zone between the human city and the enclave of Woran Oldue. Unknown Eshuvani criminals have been creating chaos in the human city through theft, kidnapping, and murder. In "Like Herding the Wind," Amaya and Ed begin to piece together the shape of the conspiracy. Now, with the aid of their respective teams and support from a nearby Eshuvani station, they have the tools and the resources to find those responsible. Time is running out as dignitaries from both sides who are attempting to form a stronger inter-species relationship are in imminent danger.
