This is a universe much like our own. There are no galactic heroes and super-villains. Social, political, and ethnic issues take the forefront over galactic battles and world-ending peril. And in this real universe with real people, good and evil are not so clear-cut as we’d like them to be.
Although I’ve laid all the groundwork, many of the characters, stories, and details come from other sources. Input and fresh ideas from friends and family are invaluable to me as I create this universe.
