Planet Bastard Vol. 1 is a shared-universe anthology featuring some of the best emerging writers in Australia. The first volume is packed with fourteen stories, containing unforgettable heroes and villains entwined by one common thread: they’re stuck on the last habitable planet, which is slowly dying. A thousand years after an event of catastrophic scale sent all remaining lifeforms flocking to Katecht, a frantic and long-fought war nears its end. The rebel group known as the Iconoclast has struck a fatal blow to the reigning Confederacy. The world has been thrown into chaos. The Confederacy is vulnerable, but alive. And ripples are spreading through the nations. This is where it all begins.
