Chris Booker


The book is a true collaboration. As organiser of the project, Chris Booker is named as the principle author though the tales themselves are the individual work of 15 authors.

The funds to produce the book and buy the official licence were raised through Kickstarter, thanks to the generosity of people in the Elite community.
The authors and illustrator come from a range of backgrounds but are all united by a common love of the Elite: Dangerous universe.

These are the tales:

Mission Almost Completed - Matthew D Benson
Crossing the Line - Chris Booker
Children of Zeus - Christopher Jarvis
Pinacotheca - Alexander G Saunders
The Maledict - Tim Gayda
