Heads and Tales: The Other Side of the Story
History is told by the victors.
Stories are told by the heroes.
In every tale from myth, legend, or faerie there are the voiceless: those characters who live in the silent, untold spaces, or whose inner worlds are never visited. This collection retells 14 classic stories you may think you already know, from perspectives you never thought to consider.
The unexamined life is not worth living, or so the saying goes. No longer will we let these voices go unheard.
This is Heads and Tales: because like the flip of a coin, the stories can change. Take a shot, and see where it takes you.
Tales from the Year Between Volume 2: Under New Suns
After generations of warfare against the ominous Swarm, the United Planetary Alliance settles on a desperate gambit—send a squad of Marines to steal one of the Swarm’s bio-organic battleships. However, it turns out the ship isn’t merely alive but fully sentient… and it has a mission of its own. As the ship leaps across the galaxy, dimensions, and eventually reality itself, the crew has a new goal—stay alive! Join Skullgate Media on an epic space-opera filled with sexy murder-queens, ring-planets, and freaking space-sharks, all fueled by psychedelic Vesuvian coffee and sixth-dimensional funk!
Tales From The Year Between is Skullgate’s anthology series that brings together writers from around the globe to invent an original world from scratch. After two weeks of intense world-building, each author sets out to expand their new, fabulous universe through short-stories, flash fiction poems, songs or whatever else their boundless imaginations unleash.

In The Wake of the Kraken (Tales from the Year Between Book 3)
Set sail for adventure across four fantastic pirate filled worlds! From galleons to steampunk airships to faster-than-light starships, come join Skullgate Media as we navigate the waters of the multiverse…
Pirates exist across every version of reality. While we are all familiar with the classic tales of Long John Silver and Blackbeard, there are worlds where pirates steer airships through the sky, ride on the backs of fire-breathing dragons, or pilot rockets between the stars. Whether they are sailing a steampunk zeppelin, exploring a magic underwater grotto, or crewing a space station near a black hole, these pirates share a swashbuckling sense of adventure that crosses all bounds of space and time. Stow away with 24 gripping yarns as we sail the seas, skies, and stars seeking out treasure and glory… in the wake of the kraken!
