Wild Stars 8: The Superior Griefs

The Superior Griefs begins its serialization in the Spring 2024 issue of Cirsova Magazine. Atlanta (aka: Nyree Shawnee) is back--front and center!
Reputed to be the "Most dangerous woman alive," and blamed for the Force Majeure event that occurred on Mars in Volume 2, the Dire Grief she saved is also back.
The Griefs are a product of the intergalactic Marzanti's planetary bio-engineering, and variations of their species appear on all the worlds still in the
first stage of this process--which includes Earth. Ruling over the Griefs on each world are the Superior Griefs. The fate of three worlds hang in the balance
as three Superiors vie for dominance, and one world will not survive.
