These are all the stories I've published which take place in the universe I loosely call the Hegemony, though the universe is in actuality bigger than the Hegemony's administrative bounds. There are two primary powers there, the Costeya Hegemony itself and the Cotillion, which have long been at uneasy peace.
Each story stands alone perfectly well! Some of them are directly connected, though, and feature the same characters. General Lunha and the cyberneticist Esithu tend to recur more than most.
