The Dark Expanse is an online RPG game: 

Dark Expanse© is a free-to-play, real-time, massive multi-player online strategy game of galactic conquest. Local commanders develop their resources, improve their planets, colonize new worlds, research new technologies and build space fleets while defending their territory and conquering enemy worlds. Choose your friends and allies carefully because mutual offensive, defensive and navigational capabilities can be achieved through combining forces with other commanders.

I and some other fine authors have been writing stories set in the shared world. This anthology collects some of those stories.

The anthology's not been released yet. But if you can't wait to read stories set in the Dark Expanse, you can sample it here for free. 


  1. Three stories is very cool. You're like the queen of the galaxy or something!

    1. Glad to be TOC buddies with you, again, Simon.

    2. And I'm only Co-Queen of the Galaxy. Nancy's got three stories in there, too

  2. That looks like a great anthology. Congrats Deborah!

  3. Very cool -- that's the shared-world I keep forgetting about. Maybe after I read the anthology, I'll be inspired to submit something.
