Welcome, Traveller, to the aeon immortal...

In Justice Calling (now available as an eBook on Amazon!), Sheriff Penny Lux undergoes medical transition through the application of a patch to her chest; when the patch is damaged, her body slowly starts to revert to its former state. I wrote this into the story without considering the science behind it too thoroughly, but since this is Pride Month, I figured it would be worth diving in a little deeper. In this edition of Esoterica, we'll be talking about the science behind medical transition as it currently exists, as it could exist in the near future, and as it seems to exist on Klea thanks to the Followers of the Flame. We'll also take a brief look at the medical transition tech of the Federation at large.

Before we dive in, then, a few content notes: this article focuses solely on medical aspects of transition, which are only a part of the overall experience, and one that not all trans folk engage in, so this should not be taken as representative of all trans folk's experiences. Be...

Happy pride month 2018, everyone! (The above is real - apparently we actually claimed space in the name of all that is gay)

Just a few quick updates here - first of all, The Abadon Relic - Part 1: By Night's Queen Shaped is in its final editing phase! If all goes smoothly we should have it published by September, and sooner with a little luck. 

Second, I am redoubling (or attempting to redouble, at least) my online presence. Check me out on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.

Third, I am planning to attend some pride events in the Seattle area. I look forward to meeting any and everyone who can make it!

Hi everyone! It's time for an update.

As you may have noticed, the design of the website is fairly different - we've finished our overhaul from a site only for The Abadon Relic to a centralized site for all of Lyra's written work. Chapters will no longer be made freely available online, but all lore and other bonus content will still be here, along with Esoterica and other blog updates. 

To reflect our new structure, the Patreon has been updated, and it now contains rewards even at the $1/month level! Patrons at this tier will receive free access to eBooks of all published works. Patrons at the $5/month level gain free access to paperbacks!

Speaking of, the novella Justice Calling is now available for purchase as an eBook on Amazon!

The release got some coverage over on Queer Sci Fi, a website I highly encourage you to check out:


While we're at it, I'd like to let you know how things are coming with The Abadon Relic.
