I thought there must be a black drape over my window. Whatever was tapping had to be right there in plain view! And then I looked once more at the light. This time the trails of light were longer. They were going farther. And I understood. Whatever was out there was sucking up all the light. It was like it was... eating it. Or absorbing it. My room was darker without switching off the lights. The lights ran at full capacity, but this... thing outside my window gobbled up every last bit.
Screenwriter Steve Beaudry has been involved with many obscure short films and television pilots. His most successful short story, Dark Matter, has been read by many people across America and has been loved by all of them.
The Interdependency—humanity’s interstellar empire—is on the verge of collapse. The extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible is disappearing, leaving entire systems and human civilizations stranded.
Emperox Grayland II of the Interdependency is ready to take desperate measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But arrayed before her are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth—or at the very least an opportunity to an ascension to power.
While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are prepare for a civil war. A war that will take place in the halls of power, the markets of business and the altars of worship as much as it will between spaceships and battlefields.
The Emperox and her allies are smart and resourceful, as are her enemies. Nothing about this will be easy... and all of humanity will be caught in its consuming fire.
