In the far future, when interstellar travel and trade with alien races is commonplace, will they still tell ghost stories? In Tales from the Rift, the answer is an emphatic yes! Colson Metter, a human trader, and seven aliens are led by a shape-shifting bartender in a contest relating tales of the supernatural for the prize of prizes. As each contestant tells stories filled with both humor and horror set in their own alien societies Metter hunts for a way to cheat the competition. To him this is more than a contest: losing could mean his life!
Tales from the Rift is a comic and thrilling exploration of the hopes, fears, and aspirations of the denizens of the far-flung galaxy.
