The first two parts of story number two, A Beating Heart of Stone, are online. From now on, updates are going to follow a more reasonable schedule. Look for them every Wednesday for the foreseeable future.
I’ve uploaded the entire first short story of the Astral Chronicle, titled Sunrise Over Infinity. You can read it here. This story introduces the Captain and his crew, and sets the stage for the adventures they’ll be having in the future, as well as setting up the Astral and all the wonderful strangeness it contains.
