Life on Gaia – Tales of the Outlands – A Second Anthology of Era: Survival Stories


A hundred years ago, there was a cataclysm. Maybe, a biological weapon was set off, or a parasite evolved…honestly, no one really cares any more.

What matters is that the parasite was airborne, infectious, and could live in any warm-blooded creature. Those affected are driven insane and mutate, becoming a threat to those around them. This doesn’t even end with death: corpses of those infected are reanimated and will wander the world, seeking nourishment.

Humanity is a dying race now. In another hundred years, there won’t be any of us left. A bite or scratch or a breath in the wrong place spells doom.

But there are stories of other, miraculous locations and people in a far corner of Gaia where few dare to tread: the Outlands. The stories in this second anthology explore the legends of the Outlands, beyond the border of humanity’s immediate control, where strange and powerful creatures roam.
