Over the past few years, I've created a wealth of data on a section of the Milky Way I call Beta Sector. Set in the distant future, this area is populated by numerous species spread across hundreds of star systems. Some are friendly. Some . . . not so much.

Beta Sector was created as a stage for a continuing series of novels I'm working on. Some are set in a series format, while others are stand-alone adventures dealing with all facets of this universe.

For your contributions, you'll receive a new part of the Beta Sector universe each week, for a total of (at least) 52 unique pieces of digital content each year. These will include star system data, starship specifications, technology and weapon data, government and corporate information, galactic species descriptions, and much more. It's like getting a technical manual sent to you one page at a time for as long as you contribute!

For those wishing to donate more than the minimum, you'll get copies of newly released novels and short stories delivered directly to you as they are produced.
