A Phantom Traveler Novella
An intimate, introspective story from a distant corner of the galaxy where spacefaring is commonplace, but personal independence is something entirely new.
Ehli Landor was grown in a lab and designed for the singular purpose of serving as bantam custodian aboard the starship Landor.
The Landor’s Xendari owners are brutish (and ever-so-very vertebrate), but Ehli is proud to keep the ship in warranty-compliant condition with the other Iscillian aboard. She knows her purpose and is content.
That is until one night when Ehli reads two little sentences which change everything she thought she knew about who she is, and her place in the galaxy.
Faced with this unsettling knowledge, Ehli must choose between the duty hard-coded into her personality and the curiosity which has the potential to destroy not only her but her beloved ship.
The Bantam transports you to a strange corner of space, introduces you to the most adorable invertebrate you’ve ever met, and sets up a mystery which propels Ehli forward into Phantom Traveler Season One.
