My Story Description

Despised since birth, the hybrid child of an Arachnoid and the Labyrinthian station master, Kritchep will do anything to get her mother’s attention, and she has both the mad skills and grand plans to pull it off.

Anthology Description

There are rules for first contact with aliens. And a place to meet aliens where the rules are enforced. Simple things like avoiding smelly bodily emissions, even if your race considers them a compliment, and complicated things like not asking another race if they are edible.

Feel free to read up on the rules of the First Contact Cafe, then pull up a bar stool, or a pool of sludge, have a drink of beer or get high on methane, and plan your next trade deal, a compelling con, or find a mate compatible to your DNA. But whatever you do, don’t piss off the bartender. Your prosperity, or your demise belongs in her hands. She owns the First Contact Café, and your soul.

Note: This is a shared world designed by Phyllis Irene Radford, but she was kind enough to let a number of talented authors play in her sandbox.
