The Kestrel Files
Welcome to the Solar System. The year is 2373, standard Earth time. The Space Race that began in 1955 never ended. Humanity has colonized the planets with the help of extraterrestrial refugees, and with them they took the omnipresent artificial intelligence Kestrel, a personal assistant A. I. meant to ease the day to day of every creature. This anthology series covers a variety of stories that take place in the far future of an alternate reality, one where aliens and magic are both real. These science fantasy stories are told from the perspective of Kestrel, a personal assistant similar to Amazon’s Alexa, through the use of audio logs, recordings, and other overheard conversations by the ever-listening intelligence.
