My Time Among the Stars

It is the dawn of the sixth millennium and the skies are darkening, for the suns are fading. Humans reached the stars long ago, building a republic of high technology and universal emancipation — and then squandered it, fought over it, and finally lost it.

I think it does an amazing job showcasing the science-fantasy universe of Fading Suns in a compelling way through the protagonists eyes. I hated that it ended and hope one day Mr. Bridges will write another journal about Alustro.

J'ai toujours eu un grand intérêt pour le jeu de rôles Fading Suns et son univers médiévalo-fururiste qu'on peut rapprocher de celui de la saga "Dune" de Frank Herbert.

I'll surely read more Bill Bridges in the future if I get the chance. ...more

Great source material for any fan of the Fading Suns universe (though as a fan you may have read the various diary entries in the source and rule books in which they were originally published).
