It’s one of our favorite writers! Playing an RPG with us! This run is Spectaculars by Rodney Thompson, and we’re joined by none other than Seanan McGuire, author of Middlegame, the Wayward Children and October Daye series of novels, and many others.
Our characters, crew of a space ship they accidentally stole, were about to leave Earth when said ship was in turn nearly stolen from them. Confronting the cybernetic cat thief, they find out about a distress call from the Facilitators — an intergalactic organization of knights errant — warning of an infested ship on a collision course with Earth.
