About the Megapacks
Over the last few years, our “Megapack” series of ebook anthologies has proved to be one of our most popular endeavors. (Maybe it helps that we sometimes offer them as premiums to our mailing list!) One question we keep getting asked is, “Who’s the editor?”
The Megapacks (except where specifically credited) are a group effort. Everyone at Wildside works on them. This includes John Betancourt, Mary Wickizer Burgess, Sam Cooper, Carla Coupe, Steve Coupe, Bonner Menking, Colin Azariah-Kribbs, Robert Reginald. A. E. Warren, and many of Wildside’s authors… who often suggest stories to include (and not just their own!)

stepped into what was left of a foyer in a cheap apartment house. The back had been blasted away, but the falling building had sealed over one corner, covering it from most of the weather. Light came from the shattered window, showing a scrap of blanket laid out on the floor near a few possessions. At first, nothing identified the resident in any way, and he wondered if it were a trap. Then he bent over a broken bracelet, and his breath caught sharply. The catch still worked, and a faded

But can the galaxy defend itself when somebody decides it’s a fine offensive weapon? Or are all Earthmen supposed to be automatically pure, so this will never be turned to offensive use? Prove that to me and maybe I’ll change my mind about this planet and

At close range—held thirty feet away against the Asteroid’s ring-bumpers by a set of dock grapnels—the Ra-Twelve’s yawning lock looked more than ever like the black mouth of a cavern in which something was lurking for them. Channok went over first, propelled by a single squirt of his jets, and landed a little heavier than he had intended to. Peer, following instructions to keep right behind him, came down an instant later in the middle of his

Peer said, relieved. The lip stopped quivering. “You’re not going over there, then?” “Not if you feel that way about it,” Channok said. He paused. “I guess,” he admitted awkwardly, “I just didn’t like the idea of Santis flitting around space. Holy Aynstyn knows where, and still putting in his two millicredits worth every so often, through crew-member Peer!” Peer blew her nose and considered in turn. “Just the same,” she concluded, “when Santis says something like that, it’s a lot better if
