    Summary

    "Caleb barely restrained himself from making an off-color joke about the sort of offer Essek was unwittingly making now. But it was so clearly a cultural misunderstanding. Essek had never been to the northern regions of the Empire, he could not possibly understand the connotations. And Caleb supposed this was a fitting turnaround from when he had accidentally come on to Essek in his own laboratory."

    Or, six times Essek and Caleb accidentally engaged in romantic courtship, and one or two times when their friends helped out with the real deal.

    Summary

    Thirty days.

    That’s how long they promised Fjord he’d be down there, under thousands of pounds of pressure, maneuvering and living and working in the pitch black—not space: the ocean.

    It was supposed to be simple. An old friend approaching Fjord at a bar: hey, I think this might be more your speed than mine. He’d accepted because he’d had nothing else, was stagnating after spending a year on land instead of amongst the stars, taking whatever jobs he could. Just him and six other people tracking down a behemoth, solving someone else’s problem.

    It was supposed to be simple but, of course, things rarely ever turned out exactly the way that he expected. Fjord soon finds himself with his life—for better or worse—irreversibly altered as he and his new friends try to put the puzzle pieces together and make it out the other end of this mission alive.

    Summary

    “It’s addressed to you, Master Ikithon,” Astrid Beck says, holding out the melon-sized present wrapped in printed silk.

    Trent Ikithon’s comeuppance comes in paint cans, rusty nails, and tar pitch. Or, the Mighty Nein arrange a series of increasingly elaborate booby traps lovingly littered throughout the Happy Fun Ball, Home Alone-style.
