Fear The Alien

Postby Corrigan Phoenix » Fri Apr 05, 2013 1:49 pm

Does anybody have the anthology to hand? I was wondering what xenos races were included in each of the short stories in the volume...Lexicanum has a synopsis of one or two of them, but not all.

Thanks LOTN.

What was Dan's story about then, if not an alien? :?:

Well there is an alien in it but it's not what you think,

Spoiler: It's a story about a Magos who does menial work helping the local Arbites solve a murder. Turns out it's a feral Carnodon, like in Xenos, that escaped from the local zoo during a rebellion.

Who are the protagonists in each story?

Just to get an idea on the emphasis.

Ahh thank you. So the pov characters are pretty low key then. Might have to shelve my Iron Hands story for another submission.

Why? Pitch your Iron Hands story. The only requirement, as I see it, is that your story involves xenos.

To be honest with you, Narry, I probably was going to anyway :lol:

Besides, it's a story that Christian said I should write, so I'm going on that for now :)
