“What if Star Wars had been about Han and Chewie instead of Luke?”
This is the idea behind The Benevolence Archives, a collection of six short stories by Luther M. Siler–I found BA through his blog Infinitefreetime, which is a riot and a half. I enjoy his blog so much, I figured I’d give his actual writing a shot, and I must say I did not regret it.
The BA stories follow a team of spacers for hire: half-ogre Grond, whose murky backstory involves time spent in a brutal gladiator arena, and gnome Brazel, whose wife Rhundi acts as the team’s legit front and sometimes fence. These two have really fun chemistry; throw in a couple interesting side characters and a snarky ship and you have a really enjoyable cast.
