This page serves as a record of all side-stories and spin-offs of the Malê Rising timeline by Jonathan Edelstein. The original thread and comments can be read on the forum here.

A) The Surreal Urban Spectrum

Installment #1: Ten Pages from the Gazetteer of Time

A post about ten unusual cities, each one as unique as they are otherworldly. Based on a post about an in-timeline author.

B) The Neo-Galactic Universe (based on in-timeline author)

Installment #2: The Stars That Bore Us (a more detailed rendition)

Here, Jonathan reworks the story by removing any elements related to the original TL and, in his words, “replaced them with flashbacks to earlier parts of the main character's life”. The protagonist is in search for a way to speak with the ancestors. However, his journey would take him to the ends of the galaxy, and beyond.
