It’s been 100 years since the inter-galactic organization known as PULSE intervened to liberate the women of Earth. Now, free from the male population, the women have embarked on a journey to take their place in the all-female cosmic society.

R.A. Crawford has always been a big time sci-fi and fantasy fan. Most of his childhood was earnestly consumed by weekend-long Final Fantasy marathons, movies he certainly wasn’t old enough to watch, and books borrowed but never returned to the local library.
