Each short story gives us a glimpse into the lives of our heroes before they were heroes. How did they get to where they are now, saving the galaxy? How did their stories intertwine with each other before they came to rely on one another for their very lives? These questions and more are answered in the Extinction Biographies, a collection of the ten biographies from the main novel Extinction. You can also read these biographies for free on your Kindle or on my site at 1393Productions, and then come back here for the full novel!Some of other the characters youll meet:Seth:Seth had it all, a great girlfriend, a great internship that was leading to a great career and he was about to graduate college with honors.
