The original Reboots was published as part of our Stellar Guild series, which pairs a veteran author with a newer author of the veteran's choosing. Each of the writers constructs a story set in the same universe, complementing each other.
Mercedes Lackey chose a promising young writer, Cody Martin, and together they created the universe of Reboots: a universe where paranormal creatures live side by side with regular humans ... and who best then to take on the rigors of space flight?
Spaceships full of zombies, werewolves and vampires ... what could be better?
Not much, it seems like, and we decided it was a world that needed more material. It helped that we kept getting requests for a sequel.
