The grand scheme of things is always the will of the mighty served by the many. Those in power rule according to self-interest. The individuals of the masses serve according to fear, need and or belief. Ultimately, the supposedly all-important "big picture" is nothing more than the panorama of singular personalities crowded together.
In reality and in my Strange Galaxy there are the few who make a name for themselves and the vast, anonymous masses. The heroes and masterminds are the good and evil of the few. The nameless many serve good or evil but are rarely particularly either.
Strange Galaxy is a universe of exotic worlds and alien races. Human technology and inhuman magic share a diverse setting rife with mystery, horror, war and intrigue. Villains plot and heroes adventure. The characters are the lives of the stories. Their thoughts and feelings are the dialog and action.
The individual is the beginning and the end of every endeavor. Individual characters unassumingly living their lives makes for the best drama. Whether human or alien, excellent or expendable, doomed or triumphant, the people of Strange Galaxy are lively and colorful. My fiction is their reality. Their world of many worlds is weird yet realistic. Enjoy.
