Not only that, Steve will take readers back to The Jakarta Pandemic (prequel to The Perseid Collapse Series) to tell a story I’ve always wanted to tell.

  5. Thank you so much for this Perseid Collapse authors list and the intros, Steven. I was listening to the Bobby Akart interviews on You Tube and was actually taking the time to scratch out a list on Notepad based on your comments. Then it dawned on me you might already have a list. Duh. Timely stories!
